meerkat manor & sheikra

we spent sunday at busch gardens and grant got to come with us! yay. so the busch gardens here is busch gardens AFRICA, which makes the park even better. rhino rally is a blast, AND i couldn't even believe that they had meerkats. a friend of mine loves meerkat manor on discovery and she totally got me into it. i am obsessed with them now. they are so cute and they are so concerned about their families. i LOVE them and i could watch them for hours. for some reason the video of them is not working. :(

day three





the sheikra rollercoaster is my favorite rollercoaster. i went on it with jess when she came out and we were obsessed with it. so when i went on it with grant and he said "we are going again. right now.", i was so happy! it is like 3 times bigger than all of the other roller coasters there, plus it drops you twice at a 90 degree angle. oh my gosh its so fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! grant filmed it our second time around.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Meerkat Manor! No joke love it! I feel like they are people! You know how people look like animals, well if my husband were and animal he would most definitely be a Meerkat!
How fun that family could come out and visit. Mine just left a few days ago but it was so wonderful to have them here!

That looks like such a fun rollercoaster, and Luke looks like so much fun to go on rides with! That is crazy that Grant held on to the camera. I for sure would have dropped it!

Okay, so Kaden made me play the rollercoaster video over and over about 15 times. He LOVED it. He thinks it's train tracks. When you go down he yells, "WEEEE!", and when it's over he says, "again, mom, one more time.." I love all of the pictures though and I am so glad you guys have so much fun with Luke. He is the cutest.
