Dollywood April 2010

A couple of weeks ago we went to spend the weekend with my grandparents in Knoxville.  As always, we love being with them.  While we were there we decided to spend a day at Dollywood.  When I was little and would spend summers with my grandparents, we always went to Dollywood A LOT and so it is so fun for me to get to take my own kids there.

It was our first time at a park with rides as a family of 5 (we went before w/ Nathan but I carried him in the baby bjorn the entire time!) 
It really was the perfect day.
We had so much fun.

This is my little daredevil- she will ride anything

Here we are riding the real choo choo train.  It has a steam engine and the boys loved this!

The old-timey cars were definitely a favorite of all 3.  Even Nathan could "drive" and he thought he was big stuff!!

This picture cracks me up.  We had been on the eternal ferris wheel ride and it was finally stopping to unboard people.  Jay and Jacob were above us and snapped this picture!!

Back at mamma and Pappa's house we had lots of time to snuggle...
Jacob loves to crawl in bed with pappa in the mornings!

Abby loves to help Mamma cook and set the table!

Nathan and Mamma snuggled and read several times

their basement club- these three would disappear in the basement and read and color for hours!
