Travel Tuesday

U.S. National Whitewater Center


I hope all the lovely mothers reading this had a lovely day on Sunday, and to all the momma's in Mexico reading this I want to wish you a happy day today.
My brother and Sister in law are really into sports, so while we were visiting them in Charlotte my sister in law took us to the US National Whitewater Center. She thought it would fun for us to do some of the activities they have available there, they have a trail, where you can bike, walk or run in, other activities like rafting, zip lining, a climbing center, and rope courses.
We were interested in trying the rope courses, but we made it right before closing so didn't get to do that, instead we walked the trail and did a mini rope course, and it was pretty fun for us and the kids. 
We actually visited the center on the same day we visited the James K. Polk historic site (after taking a quick stop at home to grab a bite to eat).
I was a little surprised to see the lake without any water to be honest, but I guess it makes sense since it was winter.
We left right as the sun was setting, so that made for some beautiful pictures, those of you who were following me on snapchat (back then) got to see some of these views already!
