Brian took the day off and we headed to Carowinds as a family. For those of you who don't live locally, Carowinds is technically in both North Carolina AND South Carolina. The park actually runs right through the boarder. Even though we only live 45 minutes from the boarder, there is no good way to get to the theme park, so we have to drive up into NC, like we are going to Charlotte, then we have to head south again like we are going back to Columbia, SC. Its so annoying.
Anyway, we go once a year as a family. Brian can get discount ticket through work.
This year, we made the executive decision not to include Jayce in our outing. Although this may sound kinda mean to some, it really was the most un-cruel decision. First of all, Jayce had a HORRIBLE time last year. The sights, the sounds, the smells... way too much for him with all his sensory issues. Also, he LOVES hanging out with my mom. Thirdly, he needed a break from Jaina (and vice versa). 4th, he didn't even know what he was missing. Maybe next year we can chance it again, but only if we know he can handle it.
We brought Jayce back a "Baby Jaguar" stuffed animal from the Diego store and he loves it. He had a great day with my mom and with Monica.
