4 Amusement Parks in 5 Days!

For Thanksgiving we headed off to Orlando with my parents.
We stayed in this great condo, that had a lame mini golf, but a awesome pool and water slides.
First day we went to Sea World. The Dolphin show was incredible, I cried both times I watched it.

Both kids conked out in the stroller. It was only the first day! 4 more to go!!
At Disney Hollywood Studios, The Playhouse Disney Show was our favorite. There was puppets of our favorite characters. I honesty felt I was in a rock concert, signing along with all the songs and seeing my favorite animated friends.

Magic Kingdom
Daisy- Brooklyn's' favorite character- worth 45 min wait???? I think yes!

Our little pirate.

Universal- Islands of Adventure
Harry Potter Wizarding World!! Amazing- It's was like walking into the movie- I want to live there!
The Harry Potter ride was incredible, like soaring on a broomstick encountering Dementors, large spiders and riding through a Quiditch game.

Butterbeer! I recommend it!

Meeting all our favorite Superheros! Spider man ride was the Best!!

Suessical Land. The Kids Favorite.

Ended our trip back at Sea World, to catch a kiss for Shamu.
And a hug from a Otter.
Overall- Sea World and Universal were our favorites. Sea World brought tears to my eyes with the beautiful animals and the awesome Manta roller coaster. Universal was incredible because it catered more to kids then Disney and Harry Potter world was wowing.

The kids did well all five days, and I was impressed with their stamina. I definitely felt like we ran an amazing race. We couldn't have done it without my parents helping with the kids, and Dad running around the park getting our Fast Passes.

Anyone what to come with us next time???

A conversation

At Lunch:

(Brooklyn drops her sippy cup)

Brooklyn: Mommy can you get my sippy cup?

Me: No Brooklyn, you can get it yourself.

Brooklyn: (Howling) Mommy sippy cup!

Me:No Brooklyn, I'm not your servant.

Brooklyn: Yes you are my servant!

Me: Brooklyn, I didn't drop it, you did, so you can get it.

Brooklyn: (Still howling) But my arms are to low to reach!

(This exchange goes on for a minute more)

Hunter: (gets up from his chair, goes and picks up Brooklyns cup and holds it out for her).

Me: Hunter! That is so nice, Thank you!

Brooklyn: (Shrieking) Hunter, I wanted to pick my own cup up!!!!

(Hunter and I exchange glances)

Me: (Sighing) Okay Brooklyn, ask Hunter to drop your cup, nicely.

Brooklyn:(with restrained anger) Hunter, please drop my cup.

(Hunter looks at me again, and drops the cup)

Brooklyn retrieves cup.

Sometimes I yearn for some more adult conversation during the day.

Our little witch and dragon.

We've been taking some walks around main street in Westminster. These are some of my favorite buildings.

I love this Dentist office, because the house number is 19 1/2.

I was also in community production of the murder mystery "The Mousetrap". AND No kissing 19 year old's this time! Whew!!!
Everyone accusing me of something.
Brooding over the horrible situation were in- Boy I look serious!
Every night the director put a hat in a box that I had to pull out. The last night she put this little number in. I definitely lost it on stage.

The whole cast.
