Adventure 1- Busch Gardens
Mamma Neel basically forced us to plan a road trip for this summer and although we didn't end up going very far, we still had a great trip and it was perfect. With some hard work from both Moms, we finally found a place to stay where they allowed 19-year-olds to check in. A quaint little Bed and Breakfast named Magnolia Manor. We drove down with no problems at all (if I recall correctly) and made it right on time to check in. Once we got there, we had our first moment of hilarity. We could not figure out how to get inside the House. The parking lot was in the back of the Manor so we parked there and got out and hesitantly went up to the back door but, with no luck, it was locked. Then we thought maybe we had to go to the front. So we walked around to the front door, and tried to go in but again, the door was locked. (This whole time I was repeating the phrase, "I feel so silly!" and making Shaunessy go first) Then we tried knocking and ringing the doorbell. Still no luck. We decided to go back to the car and look up the website on our phones to see if it had instructions. Just then, a man in tennis gear came running around to the back. He was the owner, and he let us in. All was well.
After we checked in, we were shown our room, which was the Honeymoon Suite. It was the cheapest room available and it just looked so nice! We giggled when the owner showed us the room and he said he wasn't weirded out. Here is a little tour of our room!
|The most comfortable bed in the whole world. Seriously it was so difficult to get out of everytime we got in. And we were the first to use it. NICE.|
|Our fancy tub with mirrors all around. Which we never used.|
|Our shower with not one, not two, not three, but FOUR shower heads. And of course we used all four whenever we showered. Not together obviously...just making that clear...|
|We highly recommend this fabulous Manor.|
|A must take picture am I right?|
|We took this same picture in 7th or 8th grade but we can seem to locate it...|
|Our favorite ride! We rode it 3 times and each time just got better and better. |
Of course I laughed the whole entire time.
|Oh and probably the best picture of the trip. We have out bathing suits on. |
Don't you worry. It was just another must take picture.
Our last-minute adventure to Rascal Flatts. From the moment we parked we knew it was going to be a good night. The van next to us was full of old drunk, yet surprisingly friendly, men. They saw us taking a picture of ourselves in our car of, so they knocked on our window to offer to take the picture. We promised to save them a dance and wake them up if they passed out at the end of the concert. Unfortunately, neither of those things happened.
|Here is the picture the friendly drunk took. :)|
Then, right when we walked in this girl in front of us threw up. She didn't even stop walking. She just threw up while walking and afterwards said to her friends, "I'm not even drunk!" Yup, this promised to be a great night. We stepped up the stairs to scout out a spot on the lawn, and the picked the best seats. We had a good view of the stage and most importantly a good view of some crazy people. We saw this boy and girl who seemed to have just met make out -- really, really awkwardly while they grind to the country music along side their friends, who were a couple. (This other girl by us said, "Who grinds to country?!" Well said sister, well said.) Once the girls, left the two boys proceeded to high five each other for "getting some" and then continued to scout out other girls to awkwardly "get some" with. Boy, did we have fun with those two.
What a night. Always an adventure with this girl, always an adventure. Love you Shaunessy. :)
