Day 3 Universal Studios


Day 3 was Universal Studios. I was totally looking forward to this day! Unfortunately it was the worst weather day. It was raining most of the day, but we had to go because we didn't have any days to spare! Despite the rain, it was a fun day. It started off a BIT rocky. First of all, we didn't plan to go to Universal that day but because of the rain, we decided a rainy day would be better there than Sea World in the rain. So because of the change of plans, we get a total late start. Then, we had looked it up earlier in the week and for some reason were under the impression that it was MUCH closer than it was so that put us back even farther. THEN we get there and park way far away without realizing it. So, Brady and his brother go to move the cars to the closer parking lot, which should have only taken like 5 minutes. A few minutes later, his brother shows up, but no Brady. Poor Brady had gotten lost :( At this point it is like 1:45 and we JUST found out that the park CLOSES AT 5! Who does that?! So, everyone else goes in so that they can get the most out of what little time we have left but Lucy and I waited for Brady because 1. I wanted to be with him and 2. He had my ticket into the park. So, a half hour later, Brady shows up and we get into the park. It's 2:15 and we have less than 3 hours to experience the entire park. SOOO we get there and call and call and call his family to see where they are but no one answered because they were on rides and in shows and stuff so we decided to go around ourselves.
Lucy and I hiding while waiting for Brady right outside the bathroom where there was shelter from the rain. Don't you love my sweet umbrella I bought?!
We were unaware that this Sudio Tour is THE THING to do at Universal. Since we didn't know, we went into Shrek 4D and the last tour left like 5 minutes before we got out of that show.
Luckily, everyone else in Brady's family got on it so we got to hear all about it, so we can atleast pretend that we went on it :)
We tried to save her, but Jaws was too strong....look closely, she has an ENTIRE baby carrot in her mouth.
This Simpsons ride was AWESOME. and I hate the Simpsons.
This Shrek 4D this was pretty cool (not as cool as the tour would've been...) but it was fun. It was like LOUD and SHAKY and Lucy still managed to be like this when we got out....

I'm pretty sure Brady could take on the Hulk

I just love that Lucy is bundled in the Hooter Hider...you are pretty much the most creative person I know. Honestly...I probably never would have thought of that.
