This is what we did:
1. Monday was the Titanic exhibition which we all loved. I am fascinated by all things Titanic, and it was a great exhibit. We went on a guided tour and were given tickets with a person's name and history on it. At the end, we got to see if we made it or not. Ava and I both made it, and Matt and Jack did not since they were both 3rd class. I was a 1st class actress and although Ava was in 3rd class, being a female probably helped her survive. Anyway it was very fascinating and became very personal. After Titanic, we went mini golfing and then had Baskin Robbins ice cream which we don't have here.
2. Tuesday we divided and conquered. Matt took Ava to Legoland, and I took Jack to Hollywood Studios along with my uncle Larry and aunt Linda. This was probably my favorite day weather wise and it was not too busy at the parks. Well I guess we did stand in one 95 minute line since Jack really wanted to ride Toy Story, but otherwise, it seemed to fall into place.
3. Wednesday another beautiful day while Matt took Jack to Legoland and I took Ava to the Magic Kingdom by myself. I was a little nervous to do that, and it seemed much busier than normal. We did have a great time though, and Ava got to meet Rapunzel who is her favorite princess. I don't think Ava remembered coming before, so it was fun seeing it through her eyes.
4. Thursday we ran some last minute errands and cleaned up since we thought we were leaving. We also hit Downtown Disney one more time and got a Mickey ice cream bar.
5. Friday we went to the airport, found out our flight was pushed back and we would miss our connecting flight to Atlanta. So we opted to stay one more day in Florida as opposed to being stuck in Atlanta, but by then we had returned our rental car and so got a hotel with a shuttle and they shuttled us to Cracker Barrel in addition to the hotel. The kids also got to swim before the storms hit. Yep, it was time to leave!
6. Saturday very early we finally left Orlando. Got to Minneapolis, had lunch with the family and were on our way not being sure if we would make it too far on the roads. We did finally make it although two days later than we planned. It was a great vacation! Hopefully it will get us through the next four months of winter. Matt thinks I'm exaggerating just a little but I'm not too sure!
We have a few exciting things for our church to look forward to with Matt's alma mater Maranatha bringing their very large choir to our church this week. And then a missions conference in two weeks! And then Matt's birthday and our anniversary are both coming up, so that's always exciting! Well here are pictures!A man in Carol and Larry's development saw us outside and lent us his remote control boat for while we were there. So nice and fun!
