Busch Gardens

We took the boys to Busch Gardens yesterday. It was hot!

Busch Gardens

How hot was it? It was so hot, that my husband and I spent most of the day at the bar. Not kidding. My husband watched a soccer game on his phone, and I just surfed the net.

When we finally emerged from the bar, a bit happier than when we went in, we tried to get on with the day.

Busch Gardens

We really, really tried. It was hard to be our usual goofy selves in the heat.

Those penguins have no idea how good they’ve got it. That water looked so stinkin’ good!

Busch Gardens

It didn’t take us long to realize that we weren’t gonna get much accomplished. See that bench on the top right? I planted my overheated, fat butt there, under the misters, while we decided our next move.

Busch Gardens

Hot and cranky, we decided there was nothing else to do but… EAT! What else? Lol! We plotted the shortest route and were on the way again.

Busch Gardens

We did what we could on the way. (Not much!)

I haven’t been on Falcon’s Fury yet, and I wanted to ride, but my husband hates heights. Soo… That wasn’t happening. I texted my son to see where they were.

Busch Gardens

So much for that… Disrespectful brat! Little Shit!

Busch Gardens

The tigers were out, so at least we got to see something.

We had barbecue for dinner and shared dessert. It’s a theme park. Calories don’t count! Especially after all the walking and sweating. Uggh…

Busch Gardens

No rides for me. Oh well, next time.

We saw some cool birds on the way out. The toucan and whatever those other birds are…

And the flamingos and turtles…

And there’s no way I was leaving without seeing these guys…

I LOVE THEM!

I tried to get this one to eat out of my hand, but he wasn’t buying it.

We finally met up with the boys and headed out.

Just as we got into the car, it started to downpour. The truth is, if it started to rain earlier, I wouldn’t have rushed for cover. It would have been pretty refreshing to get a little wet.

Busch Gardens

I think I’d like to do something inside today. Maybe the movies?
