I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends! We definitely did, but I’m still taking it all in so don’t have any pictures uploaded yet. Instead, I thought I’d share some fun pictures from our day trip to Busch Gardens Tampa on Sunday.
Tim texted me on Friday asking if I’d want to go to Busch Gardens on Sunday, the day before Christmas Eve. He had gotten two half off coupons for day tickets, so I of course said I would want to go! We hadn’t been to Busch Gardens since August of 2008, when Tim took the day off of work to take me as a treat before the first day of my new job. That was after we had been dating about a month. What a guy!
We love going to theme parks, but we just don’t do it that much because of cost and time. This seemed like the perfect opportunity! We also invited his youngest brother to come with us; his brother is a theme park expert and knows all of the ins and outs of Disney, Busch Gardens, and Universal. He has a season pass so he was up for it too! We all had so much fun together, and because we got there right when it opened, we had free reign of the place for the first couple of hours we were there. We rode two of the most popular rides twice each without waiting in line. Lines slowly started forming after a couple of hours, but we needed to do our due diligence and wait in at least a few lines.
It was fun to go right before Christmas, because even though I’ve never been to Disney for Christmas, Busch Gardens does it up pretty big. Alex (Tim’s brother) was kind enough to be our photographer every once in a while.
