Festival of Lights

Last night we zipped over to Wild Adventures to see the Festival of Lights. This was Bug's first trip ever to Wild Adventures Theme Park. We pretty much have "wild adventures" with him daily.....
But anywho, Bug is IN LOVE with the Park now after only one visit. He told me he loved it when we pulled into the parking lot before we even got in the Park itself. And he was certainly correct. The line to get our '09 Passports was kind of hectic. Bug doesn't do that sort of thing really well but finally it was our turn and then we were off to have fun. He loved all of the rides except the Dragon one that did tight circle. He does not like it and will not get back on it. And believe me, I am not heartbroken - I was sick to my stomach for a couple of hours from riding that crazy thing. I can not do tight circles. I can ride anything that flips, goes backwards, whatever - but those rides that go in a really small circle really fast.....ugh! Can't do it.
So these are 2 snapshots we took as soon as we entered the park. Not really sure what kind of look Bug was going for on this second one...perhaps Elvis was crooning Blue Christmas in the background???
Loved the Merry Go Round.
Loved Bugs of the Jungle. Thought he was SUCH A BIG BOY because he rode this one solo.


This is Bug "patiently waiting" in line (climbing the fence).

He said his favorite ride was the giant slide. None of those pictures turned out well. The Park was really dark and my camera was not set to flash from the distance Monty was at when we came down it each time. Oh well!
And we went wondered back further into the Park and found the football game. Of course, Bug wanted to play. $5.00 for to two throws.......yeah. But luckily the lady didn't know that Bug is pretty darn good at throwing footballs. To my delight, he nailed both passes! We scored this really cool Florida Gator Finger. It actually made it worth the $5.00 cost.

Visiting Rudolf.

And in keeping with filling in snapshots from when I was sick - here is a TOO CUTE picture of Lane with his Daddy's boots on. They go up to the top of his leg almost. He didn't want his picture taken so he turned his head (ugh!).
