July = Lots of Carowinds Trips!!

Four so far to be exact.

We are getting great use out of our Season Passes!

These following pics are from the last 3 trips.  I only took Maddox.  Wow…it is super easy only taking one child!  Ryder def made our previous trips a lot more challenging!  I have really enjoyed my one on one time with Maddox.  I think it has been great for the both of us. 

Last Monday we were on our way to Carowinds and I said “Maddox, what are you looking forward to most about today?”  I figured I would get an answer like…riding rides…seeing Blake and Beckham…going to the wave pool….one of the above.  But NO, much to my surprise ….my sweet little 4 year old son gave the BEST answer and the one ALL of us Mommys dream to hear….and his answer was….”Spending the Day with Mommy”!!!  You better believe I just melted….and he could have had anything he wanted! haha!

We have our routine down perfect when we go.  Maddox always has to have his pic made here before we go into the park.  I love it!!

We even ventured to the water park.  Maddox LOVES the wave pool!  I think we will have to plan a trip to just do the water park soon!

I pray that Maddox will grow up and always have sweet friends like he does now! 

Yesterday we had a Carowinds date with Bonnie and Kali.  Maddox and Kali have always got along so great and yesterday was no exception.  (although I had to keep reminding Maddox to be more gentle with Kali….she’s a girl) .  After a couple hours the bottom fell out and it poured rain on us but we still had a blast.

Scooby Doo Roller Coaster!  (that was the name of it when I was little so I still call it that)

Kali just laughed and laughed…it was her first time…she wasn’t tall enough last year.

I was thankful that Maddox let me wear his hat when it started raining and even more thankful it somewhat fit me! 

I love making all these sweet memories!!

Sweet Summertime!!!
