    After the train ride we were all thirsty, so while Scott was in line to get some water..Steven and Kylee played on some Hippo.

    We all get refreshed and headed to Rino Rally Ride. This is a jeep ride that takes you to see more animals. It was also very bumpy ride.

    It is now 7pm and we still needed to eat dinner and knew we had a long drive back so we left. We stopped at Cracker Barrel for dinner. I just love this place. We didn't get back to the Villa until 11pm. What a great day. I'm so glad we went to Busch Gardens. Even though it's more of an older kid park...we all enjoyed looking at the animals and doing something different. Thank you Gail for getting Scott the season pass. I just wish we can go back and use it again.

    Up next...leaving GKTW:sad2:, Going to our new place and heading to Island of Adventure.

    Hi Kris,

    Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day and that the family spoiled you big time!

    Loved the rest of your Busch Garden day and seeing all the animal pictures! The older children looked like they had a blast going on the rides there! Ouch about Kylee falling off the training seat though. Those long days in the parks really tires Kylee out. I would probably look like her too! :rotfl:

    I'm glad that the season pass helped with the entrance for Scott. Too bad there isn't one in California so you could use it again. That's great that you got to go to Cracker Barrel again on this trip!

    Steven sporting his new cast. We left
    [​IMG]

    I'm on my phone so I can't multiple quote so I will do that tomorrow. Been a long day. Left my house at 9:30 am and we are still out. I had my Neuro appt at 10:30 and Stevens appt wasn't until 4:30pm so we just stayed in the Valley since we are a hour plus from home. Didn't get out of his appt until 6:30pm. Ate dinner now on way home. Another long day.

    Thank you for still following along.
    Thank you for the comment on Kyras video.
    I thought Kylee and I would be really bored, but we actually had a great time. Now...i think if we had to wait long time for the kids to go on the roller coasters..I think it would of been pretty boring, but just waiting 10-15 min wasn't too bad. Busch Gardens was up Korissa's alley...animals and roller coasters.
    It was a really fun day. So glad we had the opportunity to go.

    Today was our last day at GKTW. I could not believe how fast that week went. It was a very sad day, but we knew we had another park to go to. We slept in until 8:30. We all got ready and then headed for our last breakfast at the Gingerbread house.

    Some pictures I took in the Gingerbread house..

    As you can see...we were the last to leave the Gingerbread house. After breakfast we went back to the villa to load up the van. Pictures of our Villa. Excuse the mess and unmade beds.

    We all get in the van and head to the House of hearts to check out. We got our wonderful surprise and then headed to the Castle of Miracles to find Korissa's star.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We found Korissa's star with the help of a worker. if you look closely...you can see Kades and taylors star.

    Another close up...her star though is more on the left side. It was hard to see with camera.

    [​IMG]

    This is where you do the star

    [​IMG]

    More stars on ceiling. You can just go in and stare at these star all day.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After this we went to the Amberville train station to do the claw. Some pictures of us walking to it.

    The Claw!!

    [​IMG]

    Kyra working so hard she had to stick her tongue out...lol
    [​IMG]

    Lets just say... after 15 min trying and nothing... The volunteer just opened up the machine and let them pick something out. I think Korissa was the only one that got something with the claw.

    Up next... Off to IOA

    After doing the Claw...it was time to leave. We said our goodbyes and headed to Island of Adventure. I think it was almost 12pm when we got in.

    After the ride we were all hungry for lunch ,so we ate at the Circus McGurkus Cafe Stoo-Pendous. We also bought the meal deal for everyone(minus Kylee since she doesn't eat)..since we knew we would be eating dinner there too.

    After our lunch we meet with The Cat in the Hat

    [​IMG]

    One of my favorite pictures

    [​IMG]

    Meeting the Grinch. He didn't like us wearing Cat in the Hat shirts, but loved Steven shirt.
