Ramadan 2011

Tomorrow is Eid Al-Fitr
Yes!!! I’m SOOOO looking forward to being at the Masjid.

Can’t tell, though since it’s LATE and I’m here, lol. 

Hopefully, I’ll have plenty of pictures from the festivities.

Just wanted to put a note here and then get to the bed 😀

Sea World! Yayyyy

Where to begin….

After going to Busch Gardens with my daughter and her son, we planned to return that Friday with herself and her husband, just the adults to ride, rides 😀
It turned out the did it together so they could have some “Parents Time”. I remember those days, they are a very necessary part of a healthy Psyche for the parents.

Anyway, my daughter suggested we go to Sea World together that Sunday, just us.

I have to say we were greatly disappointed that Manta was malfunctioning while we were there. We stood in line for something like 40 minutes and then got on the ride, waited about 15 mins, got off, got back on about 15 mins later, got back off and then we were invited to get on  again, I wasn’t about to get stuck on it so we got out of there.

What was the most fun though was just spending the time together. The last time we’d been able to do that was in the summer of 02.  We went to Williamsburg, VA to their Busch Gardens and also into Williamsburg the historical sights.  It was really WONDERFUL for me because I loved all the “learning” involved with reading the landmark plaque and speaking with all of the personnel in period clothing performing daily activities of the time.

This is in the Penguin exhibit. We are standing in front of an amazing picture that shows the eco-cycle /food chain. The picture itself was really amazing in it’s detail.
 
This is the last thing we did that day before leaving. It was a really fun show with Dolphins and a whale I’ve never seen before. It was very long, slender and quite able to frolic with the Dolphins.  I checked the website and there is no mention even of the show we saw, much less the whale in question. 😛

A Day with my Daughter and Grandson

August 02, 2011
What a great day to spend some time together.
I unexpectedly had a day off in the middle of the weed and got to spend it with my daughter and grand son.
The weather was actually pretty good. By good I mean it rained on the way there, which ment it cooled off.
Our Intended Destination

As you can see by this picture it was sunny for a little while and boy did that make it hot!  Then Tyilor got 
into some water splashing and jumping around not to mention the climbing and rope bridge walking.  Mommy said she had to work to keep up, lol
Then there was tree climbing and then adventures over the rope bridge and all over those two floors and then back over the bridge and down again.  It was so much fun watching him on his trek you could see he was practically dragging poor Mommy along and she was having trouble providing the “balancing” hand that he needed so much. 😛
They finally made it back down to the ground and by then we’d all worked up a fearsome appetite, what with them trekking all over Elmo’s tree house and myself  following down below with my trusty camera, we all decided it was time to procure some “GRUB!”
Tyilor inspecting his french fry and we also had a guest who was more than happy to help out with whatever TY was to busy to eat himself or he deemed unworthy of his attentions, lol.
At first I thought he’d be really hungry, but I think that he got a regular diet as he was actually picky enough to NOT eat the french fries.

We got to see the primates, which turns out were one of Ty’s favorite attractions.

I got to take a few “tourist” type pictures too, any way, fun was had by all and we were all sufficiently tired when it was time to head home.
