Yesterday, we went on a day trip to Dollywood. It's near the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee.
It's a really nice theme park, and is organized into little 'villages'.
The Sweet Shoppe, is so adorable inside. Then we went through the museum and the 50's town called Jukebox Junction.
After that we went on the river rapids ride and got soaked. Then onto the 'railroad' town called The Village.
It smelt just like a real old fashioned railroad town. Then we went into the 'Country Fair' town.

We rode on the Ferris wheel. I may not have looked down that much! I am a little timid with heights.
Then we walked through the 'Craftsman Valley'.
Dolly Parton's Grandaddy was a Preacher.
Strict moral code for teacher's in 1901. I am all about good old fashioned morals.
'Timber Canyon'
We didn't do any rollercoasters as we had a 2 hour drive back, but one day we'll come back {maybe with pre-teens/teens} and ride on the rollercoasters.
Here's a map of the park:
