Dollywood/TN trip and 21/52

Hudson, Mom, and I left as soon as I was finished with post planning to head up to the mountains in Tennessee to visit with our family who were there vacationing.  We spent two days at Dollywood and it was lots of fun.  Hudson enjoyed being with Ella, and had fun being at the park.  He liked riding the rides, but was not a fan of waiting in lines.  I'm SO glad we didn't book that Disney trip for this summer.  I think he will enjoy it SO much more next year. 

These are all i phone photos.  I took my big camera, and didn't take one single picture. :(
Hudson and Ella just as we got inside the gate.  The flowers and grounds were beautiful.

Hudson talked about riding the "rollercoaster" for weeks prior to our trip.  Here he is on the third (orange) cart with Nana on the rollercoaster.  He loved it.  I tried to get a picture of the big smile on his face, but my phone was not fast enough.

He LOVED the little hot rod cars that he could drive.  He took me for a ride around the park.

He liked riding the train, and so did we.  It weaved its way up the mountain through the park.  It was such a peaceful, cool, and relaxing ride.  In fact, H fell asleep.  If you look closely in this picture you will see H's basketball.  They had carnival type games in one area of the park.  All Hudson cared about was winning a basketball.  As some of you know, this boy is serious about playing ball.  He carried the ball around for the next 6 hours that we were at the park. 

Pictures had to be taken with this Southern Belle that they thought was a "princess".
We had a great trip, and I would love to go back up to Tennessee soon.  It was beautiful. 

21/52...I love this week's photo of the week.  After a full day at Dollywood, what could be better than eating a candy bar at the club house at the lodge?
(even though it's a blurry pic, I still love that sweet little face)

We went swimming at a friend's house this weekend and here's Hudson jumping off the diving board.  He did this about 1,496 times.  This boy is fearless.  Needless to say, he took a great nap afterwards!
