As a big surprise I decided to take Abby & Henry to Busch Gardens ...crazy, I know. But thankfully a dear friend of mine came along for the fun. Living here in Williamsburg and having "BG" right down the street it's kind of one of those things that you have to do. This was Abby and Henry's first time to an amusement park and they were truly mesmerized ...especially by the "roller-"Toasters"! Both of their eyes were as big as saucers as they watched these massive contraptions and saw all the people strapped in and having an absolute blast. Of course, they both need to grow a few more inches before they can experience them first hand. Thankfully, they both were anxious to give some of the other rides a try. The Merry-Go-Round being one of their favorites. Abby of course insisted on riding the pink horse...imagine that! They rode just about all the kiddie rides, we had a yummy lunch and saw a great show, and now Henry has decided that he loves "Rock & Roll"! It was a day of new experiences and lots of sensory overload but of course mommy knew when it was time to call it a day. My munchkins were starting to fade and so were the grown-ups. When we got back home they were both anxious to play in our yard and do the things they love the most...the simple things.... like playing hopscotch, jumping rope and collecting ladybugs.
