Friday we met Mimi (Jen's mom) and Grandaddy William (Daniel's dad) at Carowinds in Charlotte. Just in case you are not familiar with Carowinds, it's a big amusement park kinda like six flags. We spent most of the day in the water park area--it was awesome. The girls got to go on lots of slides of all sizes. Arianna is not quite tall enough to ride some of the rides but it didn't matter much since they had so many things for kids of all ages. Ellen was exactly tall enough to ride the bigger rides. She was very brave and went on a few that even I was not too sure about :)

These tube slides were so great. This one was for four people so we had to take turns-- even the grandparents! Smiles all around!

There were the 2 man tubes also. We were able to ride these over and over again with hardly any wait. That was the advantage of going on a week day I guess.

Oh how fun. Me and Jen just went to Wild Rivers, kinda like White Waters, 2 weeks ago and had a blast. We tried Six Flags over here too the weekend before that. Brings back tons of memories from when we were kids.
