More Dollywood
The first thing we got on was the carousel. I stood next to Matthew on his horse. He put me in a head-lock when it started. I had to stand on my tip-toes when the horse went up. He wasn't upset by it but it was a new experience.
Then we went on the train. Matthew was fine after it FINIALLY started and even sat on my lap 1/2 way through so he could see better. The whistle perked him up but didn't really bother him.
Next we rhode the flying elephants. I rhode with Andrew and he loved going high in the air. Matt said Matthew wasn't too happy about it. Andrew went on the ducks, the bees, the bumper cars twice with Matt, the swings with me, the scrambler with me, and the teacups - or "lemon twist" is what they called it - with me. He is definetely at daredevil - I asked him if he wanted to spin faster on the teacups and of course he did. I had that thing going almost as fast as I could make it go. I had to sit a minute for the world to stop spinning when the ride was over!
We played in Dreamland Forrest for a few minutes. Matthew didn't like the whole water-shooting-up-from-the-ground thing. Then we tried the new little Beaver Creek water thing and that was a big hit. He was timid at first but then he got in that little stream and danced and spashed and even almost laid down in it. We had to keep him from sticking his face in the water. Andrew loved it too - he liked the water that was squirting out from the little wall. Andrew and I rhode the Lumberjack Lifts where you pull on a rope to get your seats to the top then it gently lets you fall. I felt like I had muscles after that! We got to see a bit of the new coaster and it looked COOL! We can't wait to go by ourselves so we can ride it. We tried to get Andrew on the Blazing Fury but he wouldn't stand up good and tall and he was less than 1/2" from being tall enough. If he would have stood up he could have gotten on because he was JUST tall enough for all the other 42" rides. He wanted to go too.
I had so much fun watching them yesterday and experiencing things with them. They're getting bigger and this was just a taste of what's coming. Bigger and new things all the time. I'm so thankful I'm able to be RIGHT THERE with them.

Genesis 40:8 "We both had dreams," they answered, "but there is no one to interpret them." Then Joseph said to them, "Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your dreams."

Sounds like a good time. Always love the quotes or verses you put on the bottom.
