Weekend Trip

This past weekend we went to Charlotte to visit Scott's dad and step mom. After we arrived Friday afternoon we ate lunch then Scott and his dad headed for the golf course. I of course napped with the girls. It was a nice drive down but I slept most of the way.
On Sat. Scott & I went to Carowinds Amusement park while the grandparents took the girls to a zoo. We all had a blast. The park was packed and we were only able to ride 6 rides, 4 of them roller coasters. We had actually waited in line for one roller coaster for 2 1/2 hours. I have never stood in line that long before. At least we had a few young kids in line that made in amusing.
The girls had a blast at the zoo. It was one that you drove through half and then walked the rest plus it had a petting area. Grandparents got a lot of great pics. Teagen had one of the animals suck on her finger. That freaked her out. They had all kinds of animals sticking their heads in the car to eat the food they had. I have always wanted to go to a drive through zoo. Maybe some day we will take the girls back there so I can enjoy it also.
On Sunday we went to church and then out to lunch at a 50's style restaurant then headed home. On the way home we stopped to pick up Jazzmin ( our pug) at our friends house whom have just moved away. The have a nice little apartment till they buy a house. We had dinner with them and they gave Payten her birthday gifts while we were there.
It was a great trip. We had lots of fun but way too short like always.

This one is for you Uncle Tim- we know how you like camels!
