We have season passes to Dollywood and from April 20-May 20, I have free "take a friend" passes that we can use. Since Angelica was here during this time, we decided to go for it.
I admit, the idea of seven children with two moms in a theme park was slightly daunting. However, I always do Dollywood with strategy. We always go during the week when school is in session. We get there at 9:15. While the park opens at 10am, you can get in and get everything done before that. From 9-11, even on a crowded day, the park is empty and you can walk on any ride. Then, if the crowds do pick up around lunchtime, we leave. I also avoid days that are too hot.
Well it was a totally empty park day. We stayed until close to 4 and never waited in a single line. The kids were so good, and we had a BLAST! No stress at all. So glad we decided to do this.
All kiddos minus Hannah!
With Noah there, who was a year older, Isaac's courage jumped up a level. He decided to try his second roller coaster: Flying Eagle and LOVED it!
A favorite of my boys is this ride.
What would a day at Dollywood be without a ride on the Bees! Here is Reese (my goddaughter) and Abigail.
Hannah in the Pigs.
The closest we came to all seven kiddos in one picture!
