Enjoying Dogwood Canyon

Enjoying Dogwood Canyon

After we checked out on Friday, we drove to Dogwood Canyon to spend the day.

Tyler and Nancy headed out on a guided trout fishing tour, while me, Remi and mom went on a tram ride!

They had a successful fishing day for sure.

It’s such a beautiful place! All the waterfalls and the streams are so relaxing.

Mom and Remi explored the treehouse while we waited for our tram.

The tram takes you all through the park, stopping a few places. One of Remi’s favorite stops was feeding the fish at the glory hole! Trout everywhere!

I LOVED spending the weekend with my family, especially this big girl! She was a delight all week. She dealt with disappointments (like the Disney store being closed) and long days like a champ. She was so fun to be with!

The tram also takes you back to see the animals- elk and bison. They were moving around a lot since it wasn’t too hot.

We had more time to kill before Ty and Nancy were done fishing, so we rented bikes and rode for about an hour. We went down to the big waterfall and back.

Remi slept almost the whole way home after this busy day and long week! It was a GREAT vacation!


Remi’s First Time at White Water

Remi’s First Time at White Water

Another day, we made a trip in to visit White Water- the big water park. It was SO much fun (even if Remi was too small to ride the big water rides).

She was SO ready, but since she couldn’t hold both handles safely, it wasn’t for her yet. She did ride the big family tube ride and I was proud that she tried it.

We also loved the kids area with the big body slides. A lot of fun!

We rented a cabana, which was SO nice to have some shade and a fan to enjoy when we took breaks.

Her JAM was the lazy river. We also enjoyed the wave pool, but I think she spent hours in the lazy river. I know for sure we will be back here!


A Brave Day at Silver Dollar City

A Brave Day at Silver Dollar City

We spent one day of our trip at Silver Dollar City. We all love it so much! Remi had on her brave pants and did SO many new things!

We started our day with a cave tour. Remi was pretty apprehensive, but once she got down there, she realized how fun it was!

The underground waterfall is so neat to see!

Of course, we hit the kids areas, but I was SO proud because she tried THREE new rides. She’s not a huge ride lover, but we went on the teacups, the racing boats and a water boat ride that were all new to her. I was so proud of her bravery!

And the best party was getting these cute winks when she rode the kids rides by herself.

We all got SOAKED on the water boat ride, but had a blast! The only downside was Remi’s face paint got a little messed up.

This was the fancy mermaid face paint before the water ride.

We enjoyed lots of treats, watched the Wallenda’s Zircus show, and we also stopped by Chuggington to play!

One of Remi’s favorite things is the shooting gallery outside Red Gold Heritage Hall. You shoot at targets and the animatronic bear talks. She just loves it! We always have to stop by here.

We got to the park when it opened, and we left at closing. I never dreamed we would enjoy it all day- but we honestly could have used even more time! We all just love the city!


Top of the Rock Golf Cart Tour

Top of the Rock Golf Cart Tour

Our activity one morning was heading to Top of the Rock for their golf cart tour. It’s so fun to scoot through the path and see the pretty sights!

We all crammed into one cart.

Along the way, you see tons of waterfalls, pretty views, and you go through a cave that has a bar inside! Of course, we got a cocktail to enjoy- how often can you stop at a cave bar?

It was busy and at the cave, we had to stop and wait. Thank goodness for those shade tops!

At one of the lookouts, we had some people take a family picture. I love these people and we had a great vacation!
