Grandpa came out to North Carolina for a business trip and stayed a couple of extra days to hang out with us and the kids were SO EXCITED to take Grandpa to Carowinds for the day. We stopped at Dunkin Donuts for a quick breakfast on the way and then headed straight for Fury when we got to the park.
Ellie was most excited about going with Grandpa on the horsies-- they spent awhile picking out the PERFECT (i.e. PINK) horse before making a mad dash to ensure it was theirs.
So excited to be on the horsies with GRANDPA!
The big kids on their horsies! Ben picked a horse on the opposite side of the carousel but he had fun, too.
The kids (and Grandpa!) wanted to go on the Bumper Cars over and over and over.
Crazy driver-- glad I wasn't in the car with her!
Intimidator-- we went on some rides multiple times in different rider configurations.
The boys all love the feet-dangling and laying on your stomach types of rides!
After a fun (and clearly tiring) day, we said goodbye to Carowinds by taking serious and silly pictures on the NC/SC state line.
