Lakeland Florida

We went to Avlayns hometown for a visit with her birth family. Ava had such a great time. We got to visit a kids museum, play at the park, go to an arcade, and a trunk or treat!!

Newscaster Avalyn!

We had to go all the way to FL to see a Wizard of Oz exhibit!  Haha!

So cute

Ava sure loves her Grandma

Sesame Street

Busch Gardens has Sesame Street Safari of Fun. This is where we spent most of our time.  Its adorable.  Avalyn loved the rides, characters, and show.

I loved all the interaction the characters had during the show.  Ava was in heaven!

The characters also came out in Halloween costumes!

This smile!  I live for this smile!!

Avalyn loved the show so much we saw it twice!
