Hi everyone! I have not fallen off the face of the earth, been abducted by aliens, or surrendered to the zombies. Nope…. alive and well and currently in Orlando Florida with College son Justin. 😀
We landed here on Thursday morning after the worst flight of my life (do not book Spirit airlines – LONG story) and proceeded to eat at a wonderful restaurant for lunch called Dexter’s in Winter Park Florida which really thanks to great food, a wonderful waiter, and a beautiful day – really turned our poor experience earlier to the positive.
We then went and found our hotel at 5:00 pm, walked around the area we were in and watched Rock Of Ages (I had seen it, Justin had not).
On Friday – we spent the entire day at Universal Studios Orlando and WOW!!! Harry Potter World was all I imagined it would be!
We spent most of out time in Harry Potter world and we went on all the rides and LOVED the Forbidden Journey ride which simulates that you are riding on a broom following Harry which when I type it sounds lame to even me but is not – TRUST ME. This ride was fantastic!!! We went on it two times in a row and then had to take a break as it made us a bit dizzy. 😀
We explored the rest of the two Universal Studios all day – had lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe and after a few purchases – I now have a super cool Harry Potter mug to go next to my books, we left the park at 7:30 pm. Awesome day.
Today, shortly here actually, we are packing up from out hotel and driving out of Florida and into Georgia to spend the weekend with my Navy Son. Things should slow down once we get there, I should be able to read a bit and we will fly back to Minnesota on Monday.
So that is where I am and what I am doing. I am linking these pics to Alyce’s Saturday Snapshot. Hope you will stop over there and see everyone else posting what awesome pics are in their life. 🙂
