My last two posts were pretty sad, but today I will write about our vacation to Florida and Walt Disney World where we did have some good times before I got ill.
David and I took three boys to Legoland, which has nothing to do with Disney I learned. I always thought Legoland was in Disney, but it’s a whole other park. I took no pictures, but it was a fun day. It was hard to believe the things made out of Legos. The city of San Francisco was amazing. Whole cars made of Legos. And of course there were rides, which I did not go on. David took the boys on the roller coasters.
The first day at Disney we were taken to an African restaurant. We ordered this wonderful bread with all kinds of dipping sauces.
It was so nice to be with family. That is what I was looking forward to the most. Just being all together.
Trying different food one has never tried before.
Outside there was a woman dressed in African garb playing on a drum. Very listlessly, it seemed to me, but how long can one beat on a drum and not get tired? Anyway, we were looking through the shop in the restaurant(there are shops everywhere in Disney) and we missed our son-in-law. David came in and said he was playing the drum outside. We went outside and to our amazement, there he sat playing the drum.
He’s been in a band and can really play. I could have listened for a long time. He could get a job here playing the drum.
We went for a ride on the monorail to the Polynesian village.
Gorgeous flowers everywhere in Disney.
Inside the hotel. Of course there was a shop.
We had some serious shoppers with us. I am not a shopper anymore. I use to love to shop, but I don’t need or want much any longer, so I don’t enjoy just looking. There are secret Mickey Mouses hidden all over the park. There was a secret Mickey embedded in the floor here. The boys were having fun looking for them all.
The next day at the park is when it all went downhill for me. I was not feeling at all well and I literally drug myself through Animal Kingdom. David and I walked through the zoo area and I had to keep sitting down. You know the rest of the story. I wish there were a do over for Walt Disney World, but I’m not even sure I want to ever go to Florida gain!
Our son is a Disneyholic. He bought an annual pass for himself, his girlfriend and her son. They have already been to Disney World several times. He’s like a kid in a candy store. And this is something he bought while on our trip.
Yes, he is the Grinch. Not really. And another thing he bought.
A Santa hat that lights up.
We stayed in a very nice house while in Florida in a gated community.
It had a swimming pool and hot tub which the boys used a lot. After a full day at Disney, they were still energetic and swam until bedtime. I was wishing I had all that energy.
When the week was over we packed up and started for home. There must be a word for a feeling that you thought something would never end, but you were sad when it ended. I was sad to leave despite it all because after all, I got to spend some time with family and that is what it’s all about. Bye.
