Carowinds

We went to Carowinds to meet up with Paul's cousin and family. The amusement park straddles the border between North and South Carolina.


On the plus side, it wasn't very crowded at all and there were hardly any lines for the rides. On the minus--it was pretty hot and humid, which may explain the plus side:


Fortunately, not only was this family super sweet but they LOVE adventure and crazy rides:


Unlike the wiener on the right below, who pretty much can no longer handle any rides made for those over 48 inches:


On a side note, my friend told me I have the worst photography posture lately--for some reason, I'm so slouchy. She said the secret is to do what Paul is doing--putting a hand on the hip. The proof is obvious--gotta remember that tip!

Even though we were pretty much soaking from our sweat, they went on Whitewater Falls and totally got drenched:


And there were a bunch of other rides they went on, including the Scream Weaver and some other roller coasters, but I think the girl appreciated the low key mellowness of this Yo Yo swing ride (like how they all took their shoes off?):


Rain and lightning closed the rides down around 8:30 and we headed out. But we went and had Chinese food together and got to catch up--which was this amusement park wiener's favorite part.

you need to stand sideways, cross your legs, wear heels, hand on hip, and then pout.
