IN MY LIFE
* We spent yesterday reconnecting with extended family members on my MIL’s side of the family and, as promised, headed to Dollywood’s Splash County at 3pm to enjoy a few hours of fun before heading back today. We also learned that if there is lighting that closes the part down, guests will be issued a rain check.
We are super excited to head back as a group for a day of fun at Splash Country because we’re also trying something for the first time: a Riverside Retreat! We’ve always wanted to rent this oasis, but now that we’re going with a large group of multi-generational family to celebrate our daughter’s birthday, the timing was perfect. Make sure you’re following me on Twitter/Instagram at @TheSamiCone to keep up with all the #SplashCountry birthday fun today.
