Fun Family Day!

Wow- what a fun and non-stop day! We met my parents and sister’s family at Dollywood at 10:00 am and the fun began! Owen and I rode the cars first…after running to get there…all day, I heard, “Angie let’s run!!!”…


Then, the carousel…


And, of course, I ended up on the “Lucky Ducks” with Owen and Emma Kate.


For lunch, I had chicken tenders and french fries.


Not the healthiest – but real life at a theme park! And, Owen had chicken tenders and french fries too- he wanted me to take a picture of his meal!


As we walked (and ran) through the park, we had some frozen lemonade…


Anthony, Amy, Dave, and I got in some good roller coaster riding while my parents hung out with the kids at the kids area- then we hit the ice cream shop…I had a taste of Owen’s chocolate…


And a taste of Anthony’s Heath bar…


And, Emma Kate just smiled all day!


Check out what I found….pumpkin butter made by Dollywood…I had to take this home.


After about 6 1/2 hours, we were all exhausted, so we headed to the cars…said goodbye, and headed home.

Then, we still had plans to see Anthony’s mom.  She came over and we cooked an easy dinner at home with this turkey Italian sausage…


Anthony grilled the sausage, we sauteed some onions and peppers and served it up on whole wheat rolls with sweet potato fries…simple and perfect.


Now- I am wiped out and can’t wait to snuggle into bed. Hope you’ve had a great day!

Happy Mother’s Day mom! Love you!
