Adventure Island Water Park, Florida- 2010

It was summer of 2010 when my sister-in-law invited us over to her place in Venice, Florida. Since we miss the ocean so much and she's been visiting us here in Kansas a few times, we decided that it was our turn to come see her. We were a bit apprehensive because our little man was almost 2 years old and flying will be his first experience. Knowing him, we didn't know how the flight was going to pan out, and we were nervous to fly thinking that our little boy could have a meltdown at anytime since he can't run or walk around for 2 hours during the flight. As a rookie mom, I packed a lot of items that would entertain the boy as he gets bored just sitting down and doing nothing. To make the long story short, we survived and we made it to Florida and back home safe even for the little problems here and there.

While we were in the sunshine state of Florida, we were able to explore quite a bit of places and sampled some really good seafood. Hmmm... Fish! Fish! Fish! Fresh ocean fish, baby! Aside from going to the beach, we also visited few water parks and one of that is the Adventure Island Water Park right across the Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay, Florida. I think it was about an hour drive or so from Venice to the water park. Since it was at the peak of summer, the park was filled with people and there were so many fun things happening, music and dancing. Tons of fun things for the family and friends to do. The park opens at 9:00 AM and closes at 9:00 PM and we were there until the park was close. It sure was a fun-filled day. Thank you sis Covina for the treat! We didn't make it to the Busch Gardens, but maybe next time. For now, here are some photos of the water park.

We were there before 9:00. Early birds!

That shorty one is me with the Tahitian Dancers.

When the sun goes down, the party begins! 
There were lots of music, drum playing, dancing, games,  great entertainment for everyone and we decided to stay.

Right after the show, we took some photos with the dancers. Man! I am so shorty. My little man had enough and was ready to hit the sack.What a day!

Hope you enjoyed your visit today!
