We are in the mountains and I am going to share with you later this week the perfect cabin we are staying in. If you are looking for a deal in the mountains…..and are wanting to make sure clean and awesome…..this will be right up your alley!
Right now, my husband and I are up before the boys. It is dark…..we have the fire on and are enjoying our coffee. I did NOT want to get up. It is so dark and the bed………OH.MY.GOSH. Seriously. Uh-maz-ing.
Dollywood opens at 9am, so I am going to wake up the boys soon. I would like to get there right when it opens. I did not realize it but it is Southern Gospel Celebration time at Dollywood. What? No Smokey Mtn Christmas musical? No coat of many colors? Wahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!Â
To escape the rain, you usually hit the shows. Shows = Southern Gospel.
Do you see what I’m saying?
Don’t get me wrong. Love the message of the songs. Even love some of the songs. But.every.single.dolly.show…..has been changed to the “theme” gospel shows.
I.will.die……..a Dolly Parton starved death.
I am going to have a Southern Gospel Attitude. The one plus to the Southern Gospel blowout is that one of the boys lifelong friends is actually in one of the largest Southern Gospel Groups….so we found out yesterday that they are here too. The guys are excited. I still have an attitude. This is how long they have been hanging together with their “Southern Gospel” friend.
No, they didn’t wear helmets on the hammock for safety reasons. They were on a scavenger hunt and riding four wheelers. I had them take photos in each location on the scavenger hunt. Every year when their friends “Southern Gospel Group” would come to town….the boys would come stay at our house. So, finding out today that they were in Dollywood….fun surprise for the boys. Dolly disappointment for mom.
Here is my son and his best buddy today. My son on the right with his underwear showing. Good mothering. At least it was clean.
I will have to get a pic of them with their friends.
Ok, so as I start your day with my griping…guess what else? 90% chance of thunderstorms and rain….all.day.long.
90% rain today……..”theme” week at dollywood………OK…. my whining will end.
For real, I’m done.
Could be the best day of our lives. Could be the day I become the worlds biggest Southern Gospel fan. Could be………..
I am going to put my big girl panties and big rain poncho and long underwear on….and deal with it.
Maybe the Lord is trying to tell me something.
But couldn’t he have used Dolly to give me my message?
The name of our cabin…..”Grin and Bear It”.
Maybe that should tell me something too.
The boys aren’t dreading it. Of course I haven’t told them that it would be pouring rain all day and 40 degrees and all the shows are now Southern Gospel.
Ha! This is going to be interesting!
Have a fun Friday friends!
I am planning on it!
