Tennessee Summer Vacation 2016

We left Wednesday, June 29th and headed up early. Stopped by our usual Waffle House, had breakfast and took the long way to TN. We stopped by Cherokee, NC and walked in some stores there and stopped to get ice cream at 2 Crowes.

We got to our hotel around 2:00 and were able to check in. The girls wanted to get in the pool for a bit..

We went to The Island that evening and walked around, played games at the arcade and had supper at Mellow Mushroom.

Madison wanted to do this obstacle course so we let her do that. She was so proud of herself and we were too! This girl loves adventurous and outdoorsy things. She is her daddy's daughter for sure!

..and Riley got to ride the Merry Go Round

Dollywood Day 1

Me and Riley took a break while Alan and Madison rode rides

She loved the fireworks!

Riley, not so much.

 Hotel life suits this one..

July 2- went to Splash Country for half a day(the girls didn't seem to enjoy it as much as we thought they would). We got in the truck and Riley fell asleep. Alan was able to move her into the room and she took a 2 hour nap!

That evening, we rode the trolley into Gatlinburg. Walked the main street, ate at Crawdaddy's and rode the chair lift.

Got some ice cream and a few great pics while at the top.

I am the worst panoramic picture taker, ever. I don't know how you people don't have lines in your pictures.

Real life..

Got my stars and stripes and we headed home on July 4!

We decided to buy a GoPro after our first Dollywood day. We used to have a camcorder but it messed up a few years ago and we never bought another and our phone quality isn't the best. Here's the movie I made with our footage! It was a lot of fun putting this together.
