Busch Gardens

Tuesday, July 1, 2008
Our second day in Williamsburg met with the kids' approval much more than the first day. We headed to Busch Gardens. Isn't that every kid's dreamland? It was wonderful! The first thing we did when we got there was eat. The food at the first restaurant was mediocre, but we didn't care. We were just happy to be there!

Reese had never really been to an amusement park, so she wasn't really too sure about the rides. Katie was such a great big sister. She held her hand and took care of her when they rode the clydesdales!

After the tame kiddie rides Katie was ready for a roller coaster. The one she chose was the Loch Ness Monster. We didn't realize that the coaster had three loops and a long dark tunnel. Check out the before and after pics of Katie:


That roller coaster scared that child to death. Needless to say, we didn't ride any more coasters that day!

The rest of the day passed in a blur of food and fun. I think we ate at almost every restaurant there, but our favorite was the meal we had with the Oktoberfest presentation. Reese was AMAZED with the dancers and singers, and even got up on stage to do the chicken dance! If you know how shy Reese is, you know that's amazing! We went to see the Oktoberfest performance two different times because she loved it so much.

I took a ton of photos, so I'll just post my favorites and say that we had a wonderful time.
