Carowinds - our nearest large amusement park. We began the day in light rain, but it cleared soon, leaving us only chilly and breezy.
Picture #2: Julia exiting her very first roller coaster, with her Daddy. It was the "Cyclone."
Picture #3: Adam's favorite ride was Scooby-Doo's Haunted Mansion. Each seat in each car is equipped with a little laser gun, with which the rider tries to shoot little lights inside the dark mansion. He liked it because he always got the highest score (by hundreds) and because it was the only slightly warm place in the park - it was indoors.
Picture #4: The Nighthawk was NOT a ride that our little group went on! We opted for non-upside-down rides :) Philip and Peter did wait 1 1/2 hours to board the Nighthawk, only to be told that it was not working correctly. Philip was miffed.
Picture #5: Here we are embarking on "Rip Roarin' Rapids" a ride that mommy wanted. Daddy was not thrilled at the possibility of getting wet. We did get wet. Oh well - all that wind dried us off again :) I like water rides, but they are chilly in 50 degrees!
