Our one-day vacation

What a fabulous weekend I had! On Friday, my husband, my brother, his wife and I traveled to Dollywood. None of us had ever been, so we were somewhat skeptical, but we were excited to go on a one-day vacation. On our way it felt like we ran over something, and when we were in the gorge the back left tire blew out! Laura controlled the car like a pro and maneuvered it off the road. I was impressed! We grabbed an umbrella to signal drivers to move over into the next lane so they wouldn't hit our husbands. I will have to say that it was pretty nerve wracking way to start off the trip, but we ended up having a blast. Here are a few pictures...

The hardworking boys...

The tire is only slightly damaged...I'm sure we could have gone a little farther. :)

Here we all are at Dollywood. We had just gotten on a roller coaster when it began raining, of course! We were drenched when we got off, so we went straight to all the water rides. We were already soaked anyway, so it didn't matter! Fortunately, it was beautiful for the rest of day.

I'm so glad y'all were OK on the road! Good driving, Laura! Tara, thanks for our tasty dinner and great conversation tonight. Let's do it again soon.
