Busch Gardens with the Tolers!

This Tuesday we took off with our friends the Tolers to go to Busch Gardens. Jonathan Toler was home on leave from Iraq and we were so glad that Ange would share the precious time she had with him with us! We got to the park right at 10 and stayed until it closed at 10. Twelve hours of pure fun! The kids were so excited to tell their friends about all of the rides, and for the first time the adults could take turns going on the "big kid rides." Luckily, Jonathan and Angie both love roller coasters and were willing to be brave with us. I'm not a teenager anymore though, and I'll admit, I had white knuckles on some of those coasters. It was a HOT day, with a heat index of 107, but the kids didn't seem to mind at all, they were with their buddies! For the first time this season we got to experience the nightly fireworks which were fantastic! It was definitely more fun with friends. How about an encore next year, Tolers?
