The reason for our journey to the great state to the North of us was to attend Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens. Since we have year passes (ps they offer a military discount if any of you live near one) we didnt have to pay to get into the park. You can ride almost all of the rides that that offer during the season, and you get the added bonus of all of the Halloween attractions. I love, love, love halloween, and it's safe to say it's my favorite holiday. Although I get scared easily, I LOVE to get scared. I grabbed my friends are and trudged bravely into all of the haunted houses. I won't lie, I screamed (a lot) and cursed (a little too much) but I laughed my butt off. The people that work the attractions are not allowed to touch you, but they will come right up next to you, and pop out of no-where to scare you. By the end of the night I started to get better at spotting them, but with the fog & strobe lights it was hard to spot all of their hiding spots, so I couldnt anticipate them all. Either way, I loved screaming my head off at them :)
It was such a blast. My friend and her family go every year, and I think this might have to be my new family tradition, because it was way too much fun! Steven was supposed to be able to go with us, but with his airborne dates changing a million times, he will miss all of the halloween fun. He's already been warned that he better be home all of the fall festivities!!
I will leave you with my favorite quotes of the weekend from my lovely friend Kim:
To the vampire' in bitten: "You don't want my blood. I'm anemic. It's no good!"
The the Werewolves in hunted: "Nice puppy!"
Both of these were uttered in a hurry as we breezed past people on our way to the exit.
