Busch Gardens

We spent the afternoon at Busch Gardens yesterday.

I didn't realize how many large animals
there were to see...

At one point while studying the map
I said very seriously,
"We have got to
find Timbuktu!"
A woman passing by broke out in huge
grin. It made me think about what
I had just after that we enjoyed
going to Timbuktu... and back again...

The rest of the family enjoyed the rides.
I am a party pooper on that front.

But that leaves someone to hold loose
objects and take pictures!

One ride I thoroughly enjoy...
The Merry-go-round.
Stop laughing!
Stop it now!
I made the family go on it
as our last ride of the day...

I love this photo of Warren!
It is great!

There are many living sculptures...

Are you still here?
Sorry...but all of this is don't have to
put up with all of these vacation
photos if you don't want to...
I'll still love you.

Finally, as we were leaving the
park, Mikey spotted this bird on
a railing nearby. He insisted that
I get a picture.

The bird literally posed for me.
They are that tame.
Mikey was right.
Great photo opp.

So...we are spending the weekend with
some family near Tampa.
The kids are having a blast with their
second cousins while Warren and I catch
up with their parents.

Back to the adventures of vacation come

I just wanted to recommend to you that
if you are looking into purchasing tickets
for Busch Gardens and Seaworld that you make
sure to look at the options for combo tickets.

We saved a bundle by doing this and can go
into either park (unlimited) for 14 days.

It was $89 per person.

After checking out many options for
parks and other sites...this was the most
economical way to go and we will be
enjoying both parks for the rest of our
time here.

Also, almost every picture on these vacation
posts will enlarge if you click on them.

I hated to tell you that for some...but for
the animal and plant photos it is so neat to
see more detail.
Go for it!

Thanks for hanging in there.

I don't have time to
visit around like usual
but I will catch up as there
is time!

Have a great day!

That is a great photo of Warren! He looks very relaxed and rested!

Glad you were able to go to Timbuktu and back many times - how many can claim that? :)

It sounds as if you are having a wonderful time!

We miss you!

Kelly said...

These are my favorite photos so far, but I AM an animal lover. Wish I could be there. I'm so glad you are all having so much fun! We miss you, though, and tomorrow just won't be the same without your family in church.

Alicia said...

Wow! It looks like you all are having a total blast!!! Love all the pics!!!

You can not even begin to imagine how much I am enjoying reading your blog everyday and looking at the photo's. You think that one feeling I get would be envy, you are there where it is warm and green and I am here where it is cold. But that is not the case.You are doing so well with descriptions and pictures that I almost feel as though I am there with you. Enjoy your time together, you are so blessed to be able to do that
