#86. Haunted House

I have not been to a haunted house since I was about 10 years old. I was so scared then I never wanted to go again. However, recently, I discovered a new love of the thrill and rush of being scared…mostly by starting to enjoy watching scary movies. So when I made my 101 list, I decided I needed to make myself go to a haunted house (or in this case, haunted woods). We went to Monster Mountain just north of Nashville and the theme was vampires. The set was SO elaborate and honestly it wasn’t too scary. It was just right scary.


Finally at the door!!


here we go....
