Vacation - part 3

One of the evenings we were there, we rode to Dollywood just for a few hours before they closed.  A few of the pictures below are just some of the attractions on the way.

Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time to see & do everything. 
Hopefully the next time we go back we can go to the Titanic museum. It looked really cool.

This was our first trip to Dollywood. We weren't sure what to expect. 
It did not disappoint. We had a blast!!
Headed to the tram to catch a ride to the front gate.

Bailey...bless her heart. Every time the tram stopped, it made a weird noise and it made her cry e.v.e.r.y. time. I don't know why she was so scared of it but the child was petrified. I felt so bad but there wasn't much we could do. We had to park a ways away so walking was out of the question {well at least that afternoon.}
A few pictures at the entrance...

My 'lil cutie pies. :)'

The kids liked watching the ducks.

There were little baby ducks, too. 
They're sorta hard to see in the picture. They were too cute.

This little guy poked his head out of the water looking for food.

The Dollywood Express

Brayden & Bailey's 1st train ride.
Such a different child from last year on the carousel at the beach. 
They both loved it this year.

It started pouring so we went into a souvenir shop. 
Of course Bailey went straight for the sunglasses and Brayden was right behind her.

Somehow they managed to get Grand-daddy on a ride.

Brayden & Bailey were off to ride their rides.

Our 2 rode the Lucky Ducky, Busy Bees, the Amazing Flying Elephants 
and Piggy Parade.

Home girl was cheesin'. lol

Our last ride for the night. Bailey drove her daddy around and Brayden drove me.
They thought they were something.
