Busch Gardens and Water Country Vacation

We just got back from a fun and exciting vacation at Busch Gardens and Water Country in Williamsburg, Va. We had a blast. It is a little less than 4 hours from here and Adam did great in the car. We stayed 3 days and 2 nights. The first day we did Busch Gardens until 10 pm. Adam stayed up the whole time riding rides and loved it!!! He was not scared of anything. He is a little thrill seeker. The 2nd day we got up and did Water Country from 10am until 2:30pm. Water Country is a whole park of water rides, pools, water slides, a lazy river, and a wave pool. I could have stayed there forever. Adam had a blast again and loved jumping the waves in the wave pool. He went down some kiddie slides, we floated down the lazy river and Adam went down on a tube slide with me. After that we went back to the hotel to change and Adam took an hour nap and then it was off to Busch Gardens again. We rode rides until the park closed at 9pm. Adam didn't mind staying up late. The next day we checked out of the hotel and went to Busch Gardens until about 2pm and then came home. What a great little vacation. Here are some pics.

Here is Adam enjoying some rides by himself. He loved them all!

Here is Doug and Adam on some rides. The log ride was the closest thing to a roller coaster that Adam got on. The Oscar's Whirly ride was a pretty big kid ride for a 2 year old, but he got on it like 5 of 6 times and had a blast. The last pic in this series is when we went on the train, Adam loved that.
They have a new Sesame Place at Busch Gardens with big play areas, the Sesame characters, and about 6 rides. Adam had fun exploring that.

Here is Adam enjoying some more rides. Look how small he looks on the big ride with Doug.
Doug is all the way on the right and Adam is beside him. We weren't sure how he would like being strapped down on a ride and going this high, but he laughed and cheered the whole way.
Here is a pic of Adam riding late into the night:
They also had a river cruise that we went on and the captain let Adam push the boat horn. Adam thought that was the best.
