When we got to Orlando we went to our friends home to deliver the dresser and doll bed. I met this friend online. It is amazing how relationships can be built with people who are traveling the same path even when the connection is started online.
After school was out all of our kids were able to spend some time playing together. Yes, there was chaos. Many kids. Lots of energy around. We were fed a great dinner and then we headed out to our hotel near Universal Studios. Sarah has been wanting to go to Harry Potter World for a while. Her birthday is later this month and we were trying to find a way to go for her birthday. Our friends were able to obtain two free tickets for us so we were able to afford the rest. None of the kids knew that we were going to Universal Studios. It was a very pleasant surprise.
Funny, the younger kids were not familiar with many of the movies. They have never seen Back to the Future.
The weather was fantastic and everyone had a great time. Warning, picture overload ahead......
The kids loved this dragon and he blew fire. However, I could never seem to catch the fire in a picture.
At least the kids were familiar with Dr. Seuss!
They enjoyed the water ride. I forgot about Larissa's cast until after they were on the ride. Ooops, at least my jacket protected it from getting wet.
Larissa saw this Hulk ride and begged to go on it. Sarah finally decided to go on it with her. Michelle and Emma were too short and Anthony had no interest in going.
The next morning we met up at our friends church for the 9am service. It was a very nice church and everyone was very friendly. After the service we headed back home. It took us longer to get home because of the numerous bathroom/food breaks.
We stopped at Steak and Shake....
