We spent our final day of 2013 at Busch Gardens with the kiddos. My pass was expiring so we wanted to get in one more day of fun. John can still take the kids until March when their passes expire but they'll have to go without me. We have decided not to renew them again this year. I'll miss going but I think a brief hiatus will make the next time we go even more fun.
We got there early and did as much as we could before 2 pm. We didn't want to stay too long as we were going to be up late that night ringing in the new year. Addison finally braved the giant bounce house and LOVED it! We were so proud of her! She has never really been on any type of bounce house because she was too scared but she is finally over it. We also rode the 'buckets' (aka Sky Ride) for the first time which Addie claimed was her favorite that day.

|Look Connor, I can do it too! ;)|
We got home, had lunch and then put the buckaroos down for late naps. Later that evening we went to Sybil and Raif's house. They had us and another couple over with their kids. We had the best time! Raif smoked an amazing brisket in his Big Green Egg, Will brought the fireworks and the kids partied like rock stars till midnight! I was impressed with how good they all did considering how late it was.
We had a busy, fun and memorable 2013. I'm looking forward to an even better 2014!
Happy New Year!
