The Best Mother's Day EVER

I don't have access to my pictures AGAIN but I promise I will add some this week. I just wanted to tell about my best mother's day ever!
We took all of the kids to Dollywood! This was the first time that I had been there in the 9 years that I have lived in Knoxville. The day was so perfect. The weather was wonderful! It was not too hot at all and cool in the shade. This was a nice change after the full week of nonstop rain! We were worried that there would be crowds, but no again! The was hardly a wait at any of the rides. Hunter totally amazed me by riding the biggest of all of the roller coasters. The ones that flip upside down. I did ride one with him and held onto his little leg the whole time.
Shelby got scared at one of the kiddy roller coasters so we just stuck with the really young rides. She loved this pig ride that just went round in circles. Reese rode the carousel and was a little scared of it. We all got to ride the big train at the end of the day. It was really fun and I think Reese even enjoyed it. We ate corn dogs, funnel cakes, cotton candy, and popcorn. It was great. Reese was very good and took two naps in the day. We went with the McKee's, our neighbors. They have Logan who is the same age as Hunter. They had a ball together. There was only one mishap when Hunter skinned his knee and elbow trying to get off of a ride in the kid area. I got upset with the attendant for not helping him down! There will be a complaint letter written to Dollywood about that. Other than that, the whole trip was great. We opened and closed the park that day. We will be returning to Dollywood soon, but the Splash Country part. Looking forward to that too!
