Our Vacation, Part 3
If you would like to read about our first day of vacation in the Smokies, click here and here.

We spent Tuesday and Wednesday of our trip at Dollywood. We had a great, but very wet time. MANY of the rides at Dollywood include some type of water feature, so we were soaked for most of these two days. Of course, the kids loved this!

The newest ride at Dollywood is called River Battle, and it was fun for the whole family. You ride in a boat equipped with water guns. The goal is to shoot targets as well as other riders. (I don't know why, but my Best Girl made this face in many of the pictures on this trip.)

There are also people outside of the attraction shooting at those on the ride. Here is my Favorite Boy trying to soak some people.

My Best Girl enjoyed the fountains in the Dreamland Forest section. There was also a play area where you could shoot each other with balls. My Favorite Boy (and all the other boys) thought this was great.

The Country Fair section of the park was one of the only places with no wet rides. The Shooting Star was a favorite for the kids, but it made me a little sick. (You feel like your stomach is dropping.)

Another favorite for both of the kids was the Rockin' Roadway. My Best Girl was very proud of her driving abilities.


We enjoyed our two days at Dollywood, especially the fact that there really weren't very many lines. My Favorite Boy was also very proud that he met the tallest height requirement. They give arm bands to show your height, and he acted like he had won a competition when he got the band for the thrill rides. The funny thing was that he wouldn't ride most of them because he didn't want to go upside down. Of course, that was fine because it gave us more time for the rides we could all enjoy.

Thanks to your suggestions, we ate at the Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant on Tuesday evening. We had so much food that we ate the leftovers on Wednesday night and went to Baskin Robbins for dessert.

Our trip was great! Amazingly, after living in close quarters for four nights, we still had some affection for one another on Thursday morning.



Thanks to all of you who gave suggestions for this trip. We couldn't do everything, but I appreciated your tips. They helped make our vacation a good one!
