Today is already our fifth day in Orlando, Florida. We've been to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Sea World, and Downtown Disney. Today we relaxed a bit more and swam in our pool. We are staying in a house we rented and the girls are enjoying their pool time. It's a small pool, but just right for our kids who are finally able to swim on their own (the oldest two) and kick around in an inner tube. This afternoon we made a trip to Give Kids the World Village which is where we stayed for our oldest daughter's Make A Wish trip. We are called a Welcome Back Family and given the perk of free ice cream. This was a huge treat for us when we stayed since we had ice cream for breakfast every day. Tomorrow we are going to be back at Disney. Sunday we are hoping for a beach trip and also a stop at Kennedy Space Center. Reading is only happening at night before bed. I have tried to take a book in the car, but am quickly scolded by my husband who needs my help navigating. Even though we have had some whining and crying, it has still been a great trip. It is exhausting walking around all day in 90 degree weather - and Florida means humidity, too, so it isn't a dry 90 degrees. I am honestly sweating almost all day long. We have bought more overpriced drinks than I can count, but don't feel like we have another option since all of us are thirsty constantly. Iowa might seem cool when we return.
I'm sure I'll post more later. But so far, this is what we've been up to:
