Islands of Adventure

A few months ago, I won 2 tickets to Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure and have been anxiously waiting for the right time to go. I love theme parks... I love roller coasters and water rides and games and I love to see the kids taking it all in!!! Well, I finally got my day.... I finally convinced Joe that now was the perfect time to.......
We had a great time; we got there early enough to ride a few of the rides without long lines.... the first of those rides was:
The Incredible Hulk coaster..... wow, talk about an adreneline rush.

This is the start of the ride.... instead of the normal "take you up slow", this one shoots you right out...without warning:
We only got to ride that one and the other coaster (Dueling Dragons) once because the lines got too long to even be worth it. We rode the water rides and got 100% drenched, but that was ok because it was h-o-t!!! And Angie got to ride all of the kiddie rides in "Suess Landing", the Dr. Suess themed area.
And only in Florida can the kids play in the water zoo area in the middle of February without being cold!!

That was the outfit that she went there in...but because she got soaked, we had to buy her new, dry stuff (which is what she is wearing in the carosuel picture)

Of course, while in Seuss land, I had to get Joe to take a picture with "Joe" (a seuss character).....yea, he was real thrilled about


We went to the Marvel Comic land where I took a picture with "Wolverine" because I thought Joseph would think it was pretty cool...... well, Mr. Wolverine "liked" me and behind that mask he said "Wow....Looking good...you are one hot mama"....uh, yea, ok....!!
We reall had a good time....and even with all the crowds, we were able to do all we wanted to!! And we ended out the day with Angie getting her face painted....
And would you believe that she kept it on all night long...she never once tried to wipe it off!!

OMG that looks like so much fun. We had intenttions of doing a theme park this year but we already spent our income taxes so unless I win ticket like you we are S.O.L! I love the face painting. That park was so fun, even though I didn't get to ride the HULK because my baby sister chickened out on me (I was 5months preg at the time and probably shouldn't have anyway!)

So glad you guys had a good time!
