Recently, Andrew's work hosted their annual company picnic at Busch Gardens. It was the first time that the girls have been to a major theme park and they had a blast! Andrew and I used to go to Busch Gardens just about every year from the time we were dating until we had kids. Back then, we used to spend all day riding roller coasters. This time, the park was a much different experience for us. We spent our day walking around, looking at the animals, watching the shows, and playing with the girls in the kiddie area. It was a whole new kind of fun. As an added bonus, Busch Gardens is running a special right now: Pay for one day, play the rest of the year free. Andrew's work paid for our tickets at a discounted rate, so for a small out of pocket fee, we will be able to go back and enjoy the fun until the end of the year. This is great news for Arin. She was not ready to leave and she asked to go back the next day!
The kids got soaked in the water area. They especially loved it, because the temperature was a high of 91 that day!
