Busch Garden Recap

We went to Busch Gardens a couple of weeks ago when they weather was good. It turned out to be a great day with hardly any crowds so we walked onto every ride.

Katelyn got to ride the motorcycles for the first time this year. Gavin was her passenger on the back.

The crazy huge alligators:

And here is the best picture of the day:

As we were walking around Gavin saw this Tiger. He wanted to take his picture by it so I said Ok. I told him to go ahead and stand up on the bench that was in front of it so I could get a good shot. So as I am pulling out my camera and turning it on Gavin climbs up on the bench.

What I don't see until too late ( because I am fooling around with my camera ) is that Gavin is facing toward the Tiger and trying to reach up and touch the fangs coming out of his mouth. Well. he reached just a little too far out and fell face first into the planter.

I looked up just in time to see him tumble in. I laughed so hard because it was so comical looking. He got up and was fine and was able to pose for the picture.

I told my mother-in-law that I wished my camera could have caught him falling in ( you know, like the good blogger I am ). I don't think she thought that was funny!!

HAHA that is why I tell my hubby I want a camera built into my eyes, so I can capture those moments!

We have a boring zoo and you have Busch Gardens, HOW FUN!
