Day Trip!

Since Tim had been MIA since February due to cranking out tax returns, he decided to spend some good quality time with Anna. They went to Carowinds on Friday and had a blast! For those of you unfamiliar with Carowinds, it sits on the NC/SC border and is about 45 minutes away from us. There are a dozen roller coasters from mild to absolutely insane! They also have a water park, which opens Memorial Day weekend.

Tim & Anna stayed in the Nickolodeon area pretty much the whole time, and he got her to ride Thunder Road, pictured at left. He said she liked it until the big hill, then she covered her eyes (can't say I blame her, I don't like roller coasters either)!

We got season passes so I forsee many summer days spent at Carowinds. I haven't been to Carowinds since 1984! I lived in Charlotte for 9 years and never went when I lived there. I went when I lived in High Point and our church youth group went every year.

Tim said "It wasn't Disney"! We went to Disney in June and didn't have the greatest trip. Anna liked it, but it was a huge hassle for us, which I will provide the details for another blog post at another time. Next time we go to Carowinds, I'll take my camera and get some photos of her with Spongebob, Dora, and the Nickolodeon gang.

Many thanks to the Carowinds PR Department for the above photos.
