Summer Vacation

Molly and I headed out right after school on my last day to start our summer vacation
We went to Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg again this year
It was a great vacation getaway!
 here's ms. molly when we first arrived at dollywood
it was the bluegrass & bbq festival and when we entered the gate this is what we saw:
 kind of hard to explain to a 4 year old!!
here is molly ready for her first ride, the river rampage!

 just to prove i was there! ha!
 we both got so wet , but it felt good!

 this is her absolutely favorite ride...the cars!  
she says they are better than disney (not as hard to steer)

 we stopped over to get a little hand painting done

 the carousel and the ducks

 the bee ride

 we had one free day and we played in the pool all day
it was wonderful!

 we went into the gatlinburg aquarium one day
this was our first time there and it was good

 while in gatlinburg we went on the sky lift

 the mountains are so beautiful!

 molly's first air brushed tshirt...i just had to do it!  it's such a gatlinburg thing!

 we went into smoky mountain national park and hiked one of the trails
it was so nice!
then we went on up the mountain to clingman's dome

 it was gorgeous!  but we were both really tired at this point!
the scenery was beautiful and the air was cool, crisp, and so fresh

 on our last day i had to stop into my favorite place for breakfast, the log cabin pancake house!
it's so charming and the food is yummy!
 of course, we went in to see santa claus at the christmas palace
he's there year round!
 and, maybe our favorite part (because she loves horses so much right now) was the dixie stampede!
the food is great ( a little messy, but yummy) and the entertainment is wonderful!
