Vacation 2013 | Dollywood Day 1: Ferris Wheel Fun

We’re taking our family vacation this year in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, TN.  We’re sharing a huge cabin on the side of a wooded mountain just outside Gatlinburg with Hubby’s family…there are 23 of us total!

We went to Dollywood on Memorial Day.  It was a beautiful day, great for visiting the amusement park!  I have LOTS of pictures from some of the things we did (there aren’t any pictures from the stuff I did.  Odd how that happens…), so I’m going to break things up into individual posts to not overload both people reading this.  😉

We spent a good part of the day at the Country Fair part of the park.  The first ride you come to is the Wonder Wheel Ferris wheel.  L has ALWAYS wanted to ride a Ferris wheel, so she and a few others got in line to ride.

Everyone is finally on!  2013-05-29_0003

I’m really not sure what was going on here.  It seemed like by the end of the ride the novelty had worn off, at least for L and M.

And that’s just the beginning.  We played around in Country Fair for a while longer, and rode a few rides including a small roller coaster, the Sky Rider, and a few other rides.  More to come soon!
