Last week Michael took a day off to take Olivia to Dollywood for the day! We were all worn out once it was over, but we had a lot of fun! Olivia loved the County Fair area and there were plenty of rides for her to ride with us and by herself! However, once she rode the Scrambler with Mommy and Daddy, the kiddie rides were way too tame for her! She wanted the one that went fast! She did tell me her tummy felt funny after riding the teacup ride with Daddy though! Her and her father really had it out though before we left--he thought her hair should be in a ponytail so she would stay cool and she INSISTED that it should be in a bow. This was the best compromise I could come up with!

Getting ready to "go high on Dumbo" with Mommy.
Michael and I were shocked that she was tall enough to ride the River Rampage ride, and after a day in the sun, getting wet to cool off sounded good to us. Bad idea! Olivia liked it until the first splash hit her. The water was ICE water! And being the lightest person on the boat she got soaked. There were times I couldn't even see her because water had completely engulfed her. She was screaming, "Mommy, I want to go bye-bye!" through the second half of the ride. This is the after picture when she was shaking with cold and a little anger I think.
And this was before we were out of the parking lot of Dollywood, we were all worn out!

Oh, that looks like fun! We have not taken Cooper to Dollywood but we are talkimg about going this summer with some friends of ours! He LOVES riding all of the rides at Lake Winnie so I am sure that he would love Dollywood!
