Sunday at Busch Gardens

Late last week, we realized that summer was quickly coming to an end. This week is David's last week before heading back to school - it really is amazing how quickly the summer has gone by. We called my Mom on Saturday and asked if she wanted to meet us at Busch Gardens on Sunday afternoon for a day with the Schrodt clan! (Courtney, in response to your question, yes we had season tickets this year. They had a special in the spring for VA residents where you could get a "Fun pass" and pay for 1 day and the pass was good through Sept. 3). Mom was up for a quick "grandchildren fix" and met us at the park at 3 pm. It worked out great - the kids were able to take their naps, the weather was beautiful and cooled down even more as the afternoon went on. We had a blast! I loved being able to spend the day with my Mom - it was almost like if she lived here in town!

This was the boys running over to meet Tutu when they saw her at the entrance.

Tutu, Josiah, David, and Jacob in the teacups!!

David and Callie in the skyride (the buckets are one of Josiah's favorite). It's one of the few rides that Callie gets to do! :)

What a great ending to a great day! Callie fell asleep in Tutu's arms while we watched the "Kinetix" light and "extreme athleticism" show. Very cool - some neat acrobatics, lights, rock band, trampoline guys, jugglers - it was amazing!

What a fun time! I know your mom absolutely loved that time. We are hoping to do Busch Gardens with my parents before the season is over. I'll have to talk to the boys about their favorite things. I'm sure they'll have great stories to tell. Glad you had a nice time with your mom and whole family. Always a great way to spend a day: coasters, dino-land, treats, and a show!

That's awesome that you got some "mom time" in and that she can just pop down for an afternoon. I know the boys loved seeing "Tu Tu"
