We spent our last day in Gatlinburg at Dollywood! I was soooo excited about going and it did not disappoint! We had so much fun!!! It was a long day... I think we were there for somewhere around nine hours, but it was a blast. They had actually been closed the whole week to decorate for Christmas so we were there on their first day of "Christmas"! It was beautiful and got us all in the spirit! We especially loved the lights and Christmas parade once it got dark.
This was Ellington's first ever roller coaster! It was an indoor one and we went on it together (along with some of the others). At the end are two pretty big drops (especially for a 5 year old!). She was kind of terrified but also kind of loved it. :) She immediately said that she didn't want to ever do it again but later in the day she said it was one of her favorite parts!
Finley was SUCH a trooper all day. She spent the majority of the day in her stroller and handled it pretty well. We were even able to get her to take a stroller nap which is always a big accomplishment!
It's funny the difference a few months can make. At the fair Finley wanted nothing to do with the merry go round. At Dollywood, she cried when it was over both times that she rode it!
We had this HUGE piece of apple pie for an afternoon snack.
What a FUN day! And these pictures are only a small portion of what we did! So many fun rides and things to do and see! Hopefully we can go again sometime.
We had a great trip and are so thankful to Big Bob and Mimi!
