B and I got early holiday gifts. B got a kit full of all sorts of insects. I love holding the millipedes! The bess beetles are my favorite. I love listening to them talk. We also got luna moth cocoons. Checking out the habitat. Notice the beetle just wandering around on my hand.
We went and sat with Miss Gail near her house for the Dunedin Holiday Parade. We had a great spot as always. I raked in the candy canes! I loved all the floats. I really liked the bag pipe bands! There were so many this year! Santa came in on the Dunedin Fire Rescue truck. The next night our 4-H club went caroling at Largo Central park amongst their light walk. We had a blast. We sang loud and were even directed by Darth Vader.
We went back to Busch Gardens after PE this week. We got in a lot of rides before out commitment. We went to a Conservation Connection presentation about tropical aquaculture. It was really interesting and made B and I want to start trying to raise and breed tropical fish.
Mom and Dad surprised us with season passes to Busch Gardens. We picked a day that was so empty and the weather was beautiful. We had zero lines on all the rides, got to see tons of animals. I rode lots of rides I would never ride before. I loved Cheetah Hunt! I loved the kangaroo sign. They were so lazy in the cold weather. We even got to go on a safari tour. The best part of the tour was feeding the giraffes. This was just a young one, named Cupid. We rode the sky buckets later int he afternoon. They were closed all day because of the winds. At 5pm the safari train turned into a Christmas Sing A. Long train! SO MUCH FUN! Ended the night looking at the lights on the way out of the park! What a great day!
