Before Sean's deployment we wanted to do something big. Since active military and their families get in free to Busch Gardens and it is only 45 minutes away from our house, it was the best choice. We were hoping to go with the Candlands, but they were unable to come. That meant we needed to find a babysitter. Unfortunately, we were unable to find one that was available all day that Saturday. So, we had two choices, miss out on our vacation, or take William. It wasn't so bad. It was really hard to see all of the fun roller coaster rides and know we couldn't ride them. Once we got to the children's playground, we all had a great time. I laughed so hard when William went down the tube slide and because he wasn't heavy enough to slide, went in slow motion. I guess you had to be there. We got to ride the Rhine River Cruise and the Carousel. We watched some Halloween themed shows and went through a couple of haunted houses. It wasn't that scary because we had William with us and the costumed characters didn't want to scare him. It was funny to see the deranged ax murderer wave at William instead of jumping out and scaring us. I really wanted to ride a roller coaster, even go alone while Sean watched William, but the lines were way too long. Maybe next year. We'll have to go with another family or get a babysitter for sure.
