    One picture from each theme park day of 2012

    I wanted to do a little 2012 year in review for the theme parks I visited, which were quite a lot. So I figured I'd just share my favorite picture from each day I visited a park in 2012. Some of them will be fun pictures, some of them will be construction pictures. When going through and finding pictures I realized I went to SFMM a LOT last year. LOL!!!

    January 29 - Disneyland (Tinkerbell 1/2 Marathon) - The Inaugural Tinkerbell 1/2 Marathon. Different course than the Disneyland Half. Lots of Tinkerbell costumes.

    February 5 - Six Flags Magic Mountain - This was my wife and daughters first trip to SFMM in a few years. They both really enjoyed the new Superman.

    February 18 - SFMM - Day One of Theme Park Review's yearly West Coast Bash. Not nearly as good as previous years, but not for any lack of trying on TPR's side.

    August 3 - Six Flags America (Upper Marlboro, MD) - By far the worst Six Flags park, if not the worst park I've been to. Has some great rides, just suffers from a severe lack of upkeep. But I did ride my 200th coaster at this park, so there's that.

    August 5 - Busch Gardens Williamsburg (Williamsburg, VA) - Our last park day of our trip and it certainly disappoint. Not only one of the best parks of the trip, but easily one of the best parks in the country. Having a waterproof camera certainly has it's advantages.

    December 27 - SFMM - What will be our last SFMM update of the year and hopefully our last before vertical construction begins on Full Throttle

    December 31 - DCA - We end the year where we started 2012 with some of our favorite people. Probably our last NYE since we aren't planning on renewing our AP's.

    Hope you all enjoyed this little 2012 review. 2013 probably won't be so crazy so I'd guess more SFMM updates.
