Busch Gardens...

We had a great time on Thursday at BG. They re-did the kid area to be all Sesame Street which was really cute!

This was a hi-I'm-walking-oops-I-fell moment for Liam... can you say "Wanted to get wet!?" So funny!!!

They had a cute show called A is for Africa...

Liam rode this about 14 times.

My daredevil Olivia rode this... TWICE! Shiver me timbers, I couldn't do it!!!

Waiting to see Katonga... our whole reason for coming here this summer... we absolutely LOVE this show and it's LEAVING. :( Boo Hoo! But can you believe that if you bought tickets online you got FREE wristbands to eat at 6 different restaurants FREE all day long (one even served breakfast... hello!!!) :)

The Rhino Rally (I think they majorly shortened this ride, but I could be wrong).

Love this store they have...

Stayed for their new late show Kinetix. Liam is our dancer/entertainer and was up dancing with all the kids prior to the start of the show. They had the kids come to the audience to get an adult and Liam tried to get Braeden to come with him. Braeden, if you can even believe it, is our shy guy and didn't want to go dance. Liam would pull him up out of the seat and then Braeden would turn around and sit back down... they were both cracking up!

It was a great day and our days are numbered now... only two more until we start our trip back on Tuesday morning. Not much longer for our giveaway either.... PLEASE remember to share this on your blog or facebook!!! I've had a couple donators but would love some more!!! :) Thanks!

About Me

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
