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.
When you think of “amusement park”, you probably think of a day trip, right? Me, too. Until our recent trip to Carowinds Amusement Park. Carowinds can be a full family vacation complete with days of riding roller coaster rides, water park fun, time meeting Snoopy and the gang, food (lots of food), drinks, camping in a tent, RV or a staying in a cabin, and a ton of memories without ever leaving Carowinds!
Carowinds, A Carolina Amusement Park – A Day of Excitement for Everyone!
Many times when our family is looking for our next adventure, we constantly run into one barrier. That barrier is this; something everyone will enjoy. Besides my husband and I, out three children are 15, 11, and 5, with the oldest two being boys and our youngest a girl. Often times what the boys want to do our daughter can’t do because of her size or she simply doesn’t quite understand yet the more sophisticated things. On the other hand, sometimes our guys often echo things like “Mom, this is for little kids”. Carowinds is a true North AND South Carolina Amusement Park, bringing excitment to all ages!
My 15-year-old got rather excited when he found out we had the all day dining plan for this visit to Carowinds. He is a true teenage bottomless pit, I mean boy. Ha! I am really not very sure if he was most excited about the rides or the food. Anyone who has been to Carowinds knows the food is good but if you haven’t tried the all day dining plan, I can tell you the savings makes eating all that delicious food easy and affordable.
There are some things that just go along with being a kid. From those gourmet foods of chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese to imagination filled days of play and adventure, when growing up it comes with the territory! There are not many things that speak more “kid language” than LEGO! From building the latest scene from their favorite cartoon or movie to designing and building the latest and greatest robot or fort, LEGO provides the ultimate play date with literally endless possibilities!
