We decided to skip Disney World this time, but we still got some Disney fun in by visiting Downtown Disney.
The Lego Store~always a hit. Especially the huge Lego Hulk
Then Scott and I, along with Ali and Anthony ditched the kids with Grandma and Grandpa and spent the next 4 hours at Disney Quest. It’s a giant 5-6 floor building of every arcade game imaginable. We loved playing all the video and arcade games all over the place, but our favorite was designing and then riding our very own rollercoaster. Scott, of course, put in like EIGHT loops and crazy-ness in our roller coaster! It was rated green for mild, yellow for moderate and red for scary/crazy….ALL of our roller coaster was rated RED. Yeah. But it was really fun.
SUNDAY: turned out to be a very chill day because Luke got the stomach flu and was throwing up all day. I worked on Family tree orders and Scott and I went out on the Kayak.
MONDAY: Luke was still under the weather, but not throwing up anymore. He stayed home while Scott, Sam and I went to visit some Gardens. Not too exciting, but Sam enjoyed running around outside in the warm weather for an hour. Later that evening, Scott and I went out on a Date to Chili’s and a nice long walk around the whole neighborhood.
TUESDAY: SeaWorld!! Instead of Disney, we spent our money on SeaWorld. It’s been ages since Scott or I have been there and the boys have never been.
…until the end of the rides! He got nervous and scared after being on them for a few minutes. Scott and I went on the Manta—a huge scary roller coaster where you dangle on your stomach facing the ground. And I couldn’t get out of it because the wait was only 5 minutes! I loved going to SeaWorld and I’m glad we could make that part of our vacation.
Wednesday was our last day—we went to a nearby beach and just relaxed with the boys playing.
I was reading Divergent and enjoying laying out in the warm sun!
The next day we flew home…from 80 degrees to less than 20 degrees!! Brrrrrr. Definitely came home to winter. (It was 50 degrees when we left).
A great little relaxing break before 2 straight weeks of chaos and stress! So glad we could go.
