Aberdeen Proving Ground Tanks, Tanks Tanks~!
When we got to the hotel, the 1st thing the girls did was get into their bathing suits. They were SO excited UNTIL we got down stairs and found that the POOL WAS CLOSED! *GASP* I had to quickly think of a distraction to dry those tears of disappointment! TO THE BEDS!! Normally I wouldn't allow this but since I was RIGHT there, I let them jump back and forth between the beds so I could snap some great airborne photos!!
Ellie Takes Flight~!We drove to VA the next day, arriving WAY late. I was completely bummed out because we were supposed to meet my friend, Lissa and her son, Dalton for a park play date and dinner at around 4. Well, the traffic had OTHER plans for us and we didn't roll into town until after 9:30PM. Sadly, our meeting didn't work out this time . The traffic was INSANE. We were sitting on the road for HOURS.............. absolutely horrendous. NEVER EVER, EVER drive thru that area if you don't have to! EVER!!!
The next day we got up at and were ready to leave the hotel at 8AM. We drove to Busch Gardens and got an early start. It was nothing at ALL like the Florida Busch Gardens... but it was a nice day anyway!
Busch Gardens Fountain
Having fun in the fountain at the entrance of the park! FUN STUFF! The girls were ALL about getting wet!! If it was a water attraction, they were RIGHT THERE!
Ahh... the day was soooo busy and full of adventure and things to do and see, but the girls never give up an opportunity to stop and smell the flowers!!
Never miss the chance to stop and smell the flowers~!!Most of the day was spent playing in this little 'water park' in the fountains.
There was a cute little section of the park that was all for pre-school aged kids. Though they mostly wanted to play in the water fountains all day, they did go on a couple of the rides. This one was particularly cute!
Little Dragon Flume~!This was the favourite spot for the day! It was a cute little area with little fountains to splash about in. The girls played here most of the day!
The next day we got up early and checked out of the hotel in Williamsburg and headed north towards Richmond. We spent the day at King's Dominion amusement park. We really enjoyed this place! The girls were SO excited that there were characters to meet and take pictures with!
DORA THE EXPLORER~!
Mystery machine!~There was such a cute area to go 'meet' BLUE from 'Blue's Clues'! It was indoors and a little dark but it was airconditioned :) SMART!!
Though ALL of the areas of this park were adorable and fun, the HIGHLIGHT of the trip for the girls was, most definitely, meeting SPONGEBOB and PATRICK!!
