Ok, I have a confession. I am a very nostalgic person. I am of the mind that the cartoons when I was a kid are far better than any offered today, our toys were cooler even though not as technologically advanced and the stuff we did was just, well better. I am the one who when on family vacations has to stop by that one “cool” store that has all the shirts, cups and collectibles from my childhood.
Carowinds is now the home of their 14th roller coaster, Copperhead Strike, a double launch coaster with more inversions than any other roller coaster in North America. The new rollercoaster is just one of the many new attractions at Carowinds for the 2019 season.
Oh, boy! I am not really sure how to feel right now. Excited yet sad at the same time. I now have a 16-year-old… oh, Sweet Sixteen! It makes me feel old to think that I have a 16-year-old but at the same time, I’m so proud of what he has become. 16 is a bit of a scary year for me. It is the year of independence far more than any of the years prior. It is when I realize that my boy is becoming a man. To think that he will graduate in just two years is exciting yet concerning.

Don’t Miss the Great Pumpkin Fest This Month at Carowinds
Cool nights, college football, pumpkin everything and the changing of leaves all make Fall a special time! With three kids of our own (plus one foster child) one of our traditions as Halloween approaches is watching “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.” We enjoy watching Charlie Brown and Snoopy’s fun antics as they prepare for Halloween.
