Tennessee 2011 - Amusements!

OK, I'm going to apologize upfront for this. I'm tired of doing this blogging of the vacation but if I don't do it I'll forget, so here goes!

Goofy golf, mini golf, putt-putt, whatever you want to call it, we did it. We is stretching it, since I did not, but everybody else did, some of them twice.

Q5 using her clever one-handed stroke

C6 playing ... notice Papa talking to her about her "curse-ed ball!" C6 has been all about curse-ed everthing since then. Also note the fleece scrap of fabric in her hair. Lovely. AND she stole Uncle A's ball!

And of course ... Dollywood. Dollywood! DOLLYWOOD!!!

Waiting to get our tickets in:

I found it to be an odd amusement park, packed with food, shows, things to buy, and then the occasional ride. Actually, it was a great day, all the rides were enjoyed. C6 was only disappointed that she wasn't tall enough to go on 3 out of the 4 roller coasters at Dollywood. Nor was Q5, but she didn't care. She opted out of a number of rides. Like this one.

Both girls liked the automobiles, although Q5 was nervous until she found out the cars drove themself, then she happily got on.

She didn't like the log flume, and so when C6 wanted to go on that a second time, Q5 and I moved on and found a panning for gems activity:

We sought the rest of our group, and found them doing this incredible climbing activity, which neither girl wanted to do. Good thing, because it took the others about 45 minutes to go through. They did do the warm up to the ropes course/climbing thing, though. The purpose of this is to get the little kids used to the ropes, etc., but Q5 and C6 were happy to do the little kid rope course three times and skip the big one.

While C6 went on thing like the flying swings and the scrambler, Q5 went to kiddieland. C6 even joined her for one of the rides.

C5, C42, and Ninoo rode the Ferris Wheel.

And Q5 did rode the carousel a record ten times.

The serious business of ice cream

Last pictures of the day. Dirty shirts, tired eyes, bark "tiaras" on heads, self-inflicted bunny-ears, and giant smiles for a great day.
