Universal Studios

Today the boys went to Universal Studios for the first time, which is kind of surprising because it is so close to their grandparents’ house. It was perfect for us because we are not really ride people. Most of the rides here focus on special effects and illusion, which is more our style.

A plane flew across the set and landed right next to the audience!  There were fires, explosions, crazy high jumps into the water and a lot of splashing.

The food area was mostly set up like a street in Paris. It brought back fun memories of my most favorite place to visit.  Aidan and I had macaroons and cookies at the patisserie while everyone else was on the Transformers ride.

If you get the chance you should definitely visit Universal Studios. Look what we passed on the way home.


So, I am wondering, does your family like rides?
