Cypress Gardens

A while ago we went to Cypress Gardens. (wow…I can’t believe it has been that long ago! It’s a whirlwind, I tell you. A whirlwind!) Anyway, Cypress Gardens was so fun! I didn’t know the place was that fun! We are even considering getting passes there for next year because it costs the same to get a pass there for the whole year as it does to go to Disney for one day!

If you don’t know much about it, let me just tell you it is more than just a Botanical Garden. Back in 2004 they added lots of ride and coasters. And there are LOTS! We didn’t even ride it all. They also have a splash park with water slides. That was really fun.

Another really fun thing was having my mom there with us. She had been there, herself, as a little girl back in the 40’s or 50’s! It was fun to envision her sitting there on the grassy hill watching the water ski show, a similar show to what we were watching (only now they have stadium seating).

Check out this video of us riding a roller coaster! Watching the kids cracks me up!

Here are the kids on an airplane ride –

And, yes, this is our 5 year old daughter riding the swing ride (which I would never go on myself)!
