Yep of we all go to Universal Studios. Bai Bai with us today, another Universal Studios virgin in the family. We have to rectify that. Man was I impressed. For someone who has never been on a roller-coaster before this lady was seriously impressive – she went on THE LOT and never lost her smile all day long. BattleStar Galactica was a breeze for both rides, The Mummy she took easily in her stride. Amazing when her sister is outside the ride and not willing to go on anything ha ha.
“But I am baby-sitting Jude!” Is my Mary’s usual rapport.
Actually what she means is; “I am shit scared of roller-coasters, I’ll just let my sister go for it…”
So let’s have some pics of the family outing shall we;
|The family – an obligatory shot standing in front of the Universal Studios spinning globe.|
|Now plus Ollie, on our way to the first ride of the day – Madagascar the Crate Escape. A gentle start…|
|Now last we went on this ride, this little boy cried and cried. Today what a difference. He sat with his Dad, and chatted, looked around, and laughed. He loved it. Very proud of you Baby Jude. Looks like you were about to enjoy it from the photo.|
|And behind me sit the rest of the gang – Bai Bai looking calm and collected, despite me telling her this was a really scary ride, ha ha – nasty me!!!|
|Jude just so very proud of himself on the Madagascar Round-a-bout. He loved it. Like a King on his stallion. Bless him.|
|We keep walking round and the penguins are out having just finished their dancing set. So it’s photo time. Amy was desperate to go alone for the first photo – nice one Amy!!! Ha Ha.|
|And then all got in on the action, not quite sure what Mary is doing though. Looks like she sprained an ankle…|
|The girls then spotted this chap – apparently someone famous. They demanded I take a picture very fast and furious.|
First time for everything day today.
Riding Battlestar Galactica in the rain – it was amazing.
We got absolutely flipping soaked, but it was such a giggle.
|Funny how things happen – Jude is over 2 as you know and has HATED buggies with a vengeance. But in the last two weeks or so an amazing turnaround has happened and he loves them. His own and ones like this rented from the Studios.|
|Mary did well here capturing us all on Jurassic Park water ride – yep Bai Bai got soaked once again!!! Fate was on her side today, ha ha.|
|And another – albeit it tad camp. Having fun fun fun though.|
|Our mates now at the Waterworld stunt spectacular. Yep we got soaked again. Great show though guys!!!|
|Bloody cool this show – amazing stunts in quite a small place – well worth a look!|
|And the final photo of the day – me and my little boy having fun on the Madagascar ride, kindly photographed by Mary sat behind me with Bai Bai. Love this photo – look at that cheeky little face…. Of Jude I meant!!!|
So it was a great day – we all had fun – it was lovely to have Bai Bai with us to to enjoy it, and for us to share the fun with her. Thanks for coming Sis. What a great day!!!
