Broken Camera and Busch Gardens

Saturday, while out with the family, as I started taking pictures of everyone.....the one thing you do not want to happen to ANY electronic device..happened to me. Yup, my clumsy self dropped it. EPIC FAIL! To make it worse, the camera was on with the lens zoomed out, and I dropped it right on the lens causing it to break the motor. I swear, when it dropped, I was like in SLOW-MO...yelling "Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!

I have had that camera for almost 2 years, it was a gift from my husband for Christmas. Now I am cameraless...but I still have my bloggie which I can use, the only thing is that it does not have a flash button and it does not take good pics inside or at night. But it takes good images and videos in good light. So I will have to make due until I get an IPAD. hahaha

Here are the few images I got to take before my pink sony died. We went to an amusement park....can you guess where? If youre not from around Virginia Beach, you prolly wont guess, but we went to BUSCH GARDENS, voted the World's Most Beautiful Theme Park!

My mom treated the kids to tickets to Busch Gardens now that everyone is back home. My mom, along with myself do not really ride rollercoasters. I used to be able to, but the past few years, my stomach cannot handle going up and down, and upside down. Everyone else, including my hubby loves them.

Arabella and Matthias have never been there before, so I was excited to share this with my family. We were missing a few family members, but hopefully next time everyone can join us. The kids rode all sorts of ride for "little people" and I was surprised that they both rode "Escape from Pompeii" which is a huge water ride.

We were all drenched afterwards. The first time I rode it, me and Matthias rode it and Arabella got us with the water gun on the side when the boat comes down. When they went on it again with my cousin and brother, Jermie and I got them ALL with three water guns. hahaha  We went on Roman Rapids, which is another wet ride, and we were needless to say, soaking wet.

There was also the new Verbolten Ride and MACH Tower which are the two newest rides to the park. I didnt ride them, but maybe next time when its just hubby and I. Kinda hard to do the big rides when the kiddos wanna do all the kiddie stuff.

It was a fun day. The lil zombies were sooo tired too after a day of walking. Matti had a 3 hour practice for football so he was pretty grumpy when it was time to go home.

That was how we spent our saturday, just good times with the family! What did you do this weekend???

Water rides and themeparks,
