Things I have learned

at Dollywood's Splash Country:

1) Just because they make a swimsuit in your size doesn't mean you should wear it.
2)Nair for men is a great thing
3)Nair for women is even better
4)Speedos and a long sleeve swim shirt do not go together
5)Some people have no shame....
6) J and I were the only 2 people there over 18 who did not have a tattoo
7) Just because you have a tattoo doesn't mean everyone needs to see it

We had a great time. The kids and I love the water (hate the beach though). I loved waterparks as a kid, but when I became an overweight middle aged woman I didn't like them much....but you know what.. I wasn't the only overweight middle age woman there..but I was one of the few who knew better than to wear a bikini.
But we had loads of fun, got burnt (except J who is obsessive about sunscreen..maybe that is a good thing). Z even enjoyed many of the things that he thought he would hate. Z is NOT my roller coaster rider. He hates them. It kinda makes sense though. He had reflux as a baby and the baby swing was even too much for him. We will go back and may even add the season pass to our Dollywood passes.

We had a great week in Gatlinburg.. As soon as I get the pics on the computer (must find the reader first) I will post them.

Have a great day

Funny. We loved Dollywood when we went. More boob-coverup on ladies there than any Six Flags or Disney World.

Mama-- we do like Dolly's policy about shirts needing to be on. We saw several girls turned away this summer trying to get in with a very small bikini top.

Good post, too.

We have noticed that you are "abnormal" if you don't have a tattoo.
