Thrills and drenchings. . . . .

Well our first big outing on our vacation was to Dollywood in Pigeon Forge. Everyone was excited. I had been the only one to ever go there but that was 17 years ago and I remembered nothing about it and the park has made a tremendous transformation since. We were all looking forward to a great day outside that is until the rains came. Let me tell you I felt like I was walking around with someone holding a garden hose over my head for at least half the day. My husband said it best when he said that "he had water in places he never had before" but we didn't let that stop us. Bad hair and all we trenched around like a bunch of little sponges jumping from ride to ride along with all of the rest of the drounded rats. There were actually quite a few great thrill rides at the park some of which my husband said made our daughters and I get closer to God on quite a few occasions! Our youngest son Adam had an absolute blast on their river rapids ride. I have never seen a 2 year old giggle with delight as much as he did when that water came billowing over the sides absolutely drenching him over and over! Overall the day was quite exciting and fun and we finished it off with dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. My husband and I decided that a trip there one time was enough for our lifetimes. The good thing is when Adam didn't get his way and started screaming no one could hear him! The next best event of the evening was our go-cart adventure. We found an indoor track that John, I and the kids (even Adam)raced on. Boy nascar had nothing on us! If only I could get Damien to stop driving like an 80 year grandma! geesh
