Dollywood Vacation/Giveaway

I have been wanting to take a little family vacation for a while now. Since Lydia was born, we have never gone anywhere as a family unless it has been to see extended family. With our baby almost here, we looked at our options and asked around. Everyone said the same thing. "Just a weekend trip? Go to Dollywood!" Man, was this good advice!

Dollywood is this fantastic Southern theme park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Dolly as in Dolly Parton. Yes, that is right. This place had everything. Glass blowers, huge BBQ pits, live performances, a real working steam engine and (of course) incredible rides (not that I went. Too pregnant!)

We spent the day walking around the park, listening to country music and watching our little girl have the time of her life. (I'm not a country music fan, but living in Tennessee, I have found it has its place. ) Midway through the day we were already planning our trip back. Lucky for us, you can make a one day pass into a season package for less than a second day's ticket!

Want to go? Dollywood is offering two free adult tickets to one lucky Natalie's Sentiments reader!
To enter, just comment on this post about what you think sounds fun about Dollywood. If you have already been, mention your favorite part. Check out the website if you need some ideas. For a second entry, mention in a separate comment that you are a Natalie's Sentiments reader/subscriber/follower. You must be able to take advantage of the tickets within 6 months. So if you live in Oregon and aren't planning a visit to Tennessee, don't enter :) I will announce the randomly selected winner on May 1st. Good luck!

OMG!!!! Now you went and did it! I am now officially, 100% percent green with envy. Dolly Parton is my IDOL!!!! I have everyone of her cd's, I have read her autobiography and I am in the process of annoying my husband to death for a brigh pink "backwoods Barbie" t-shirt for mothers day. We are planning to go to Dollywood, either this year or next so bring on the luck and make those tickets mine!

My family of four will be traveling to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge in June for our family vacation. We have never been to Dollywood and have decided that we are going on this trip. We visit East Tennessee at least 3 times a year and dream someday of moving there. I have a 5 year old boy, Garrett and a 3 year old boy, Levi. I think they will enjoy the rides and especially the train ride. My 3 year old LOVES trains (we have to watch Polar Express all year long!) and will be on cloud 9 when he sees the train!
