Friday Favorites

DollyWood was so much fun last week! We had a fantastic time! It was supposed to rain all day Friday but it didn't! The weather was perfect. The company was perfect. We practically walked onto rides at the park the crowd was so small. (And the newer rollercoaster, Wild Eagle? Awesome. I hadn't ridden it before.) So I thought I'd share some pictures. 

We had just arrived! We were waiting on the trolley. We took the trolley to DollyWood on Friday to avoid paying to park for two days at the park. It was fun. And it cost us $3 total to ride. 

When we got on the trolley to go from the main hub to DollyWood we were alone! I told Justin it was our $1 limo! 

Waiting in line at Blazing Fury! Mostly for nostalgia sakes; it's not really exciting :) But they took the water out. What??? We actually asked. and they said the new braking system couldn't get wet. And here I prepared myself for nothing. 

Super old piano in the church. Most of those keys are broken; I didn't really play anything. 

Yes! Yes! Yes! 

Too bad none of these purses were very attractive. (Does that sound better than saying they were u-g-l-y? Because that's what I said first.) But I loved the sign. 

View from the top of the ferris wheel! 

Texas Roadhouse! Love my ribs! 

We stayed at a new place that has suites. They were super nice and had a fully stocked kitchen. We'll definitely be doing that again! 

Why, yes, we did get rained on Saturday. That must be why I look like a drowned rat. haha

And the soaked hair instituted the "let's pull our bangs back in a funky braid" because all the bobby pins were in the car.  The big cookie....well, who needs an excuse for that?  I could eat that right now. Too bad I don't have any cookies. "Does anyone have any cookies??" (I said that in the voice of Jimmy from VeggieTales, just so you know.)

But the best part was coming home! Look at this guy! 

And this guy! 

We had a blast and I'm so glad we found a time to go. But as we've always said, real life is so much better. I'm glad we don't live for vacations and fancy things. I love our day to day work and life! 

Mother's Day picture with my boys! 

We got most of our garden planted! Isn't Kentucky beautiful? 

Cute sleeping baby! Chubby legs, baby feet, crazy hair. Babies are amazing! 

On a walk with the boys! And yes, I did get a haircut yesterday! 

Bathtime! hahahaha I have no words to caption this! Love my boys! 


  1. First of all, you are so pretty! Second of all, I can't believe they took the water out! That was one of the best parts! Glad you had a good time though! :)

  2. Aww...thanks! And we were really surprised by the no water as well. It was so much fun; I'm so glad we went!
