Aaaand we’re back! The busy times continue. We’d be remiss, though, if we didn’t post a recap of last month’s fabulous Florida vacation. We had a wonderful spring break with Granny Sue and Grandpa Bill in Orlando. As a special bonus, we were also able to meet up with Melissa (Mom’s friend from HS) and her family and Stacey (Mom’s friend from ND).
All in all, it was a relaxing week full of ‘firsts’, which we’ll share with you now.
*When you think of Orlando, we’re guessing that Disney is one of the first things that comes to mind. In our case, “Disney” refers to the Downtown Disney Area, which is FREE … haha. Yeeaaah … Mom entertained the theme park idea for about 2.5 seconds. Then she saw the ticket prices, and that was that. She says we’ll save it for a time when I’m tall enough for the rides and can remember more of the experience. It’s cool. I was quite content to stroll past the shops with Grandpa Bill and play in the Legoland store with Granny Sue.
I lost track of how many times I went down the slide with Dad and Grandpa Bill. There were two options, and I preferred the slide “without a top” (as I called it). Who wants a cramped tunnel when you can have the thrill of the open air? Yep … gotta love those topless slides! (haha … sorry, Mom can’t resist a bad joke.)
Midway through our week, we enjoyed another neat activity (and one not likely to be repeated for a while) – our first ride in a swan boat! I hired the finest boat drivers I could find to chauffeur me around in my white chariot.
As you’d guess, we spent most of each day outside. Back in the condo, I played games of Uno with Grandpa Bill and Dad. It may be difficult to tell, but this is a picture of me looking a little too excited to play my “Draw 4″ card and make Grandpa pick up extra cards. Muuuwaaahaahaha!
Yep – classy ladies!
And last but not least, this trek included our first visit to the Atlantic Ocean. Woohoo! We’ve waded in the Pacific during trips to see family in California, but this was my first time (and Molly’s) on the opposite coast.
