to Orlando, Florida
We had a
lot of fun last week! We just returned from a full week in Orlando,
Florida with Brian's parents, Trudy and Phil, his brother Andrew, and his
brother Kevin, and wife Annette and our nephew Nicky! In fact, tonight I'm
wishing we were still there. We went from ninety degrees and lots of sun
to hail and rain in Portland!
There are a lot of photos here. Give them some time to load. Click on them

and Brian's Trip to "Fantasy of Flight"
This exceeded my
expectations. It was a really neat museum. We had a nice quiet day
together in the middle of the week, driving out to see one of Brian's
favorite things, airplanes.
Trip to "Gatorland"
much cooler than we expected. We saw all of these birds, most with nests
with babies or eggs inside. And of course we saw lots of alligators. But
for me, the birds were the highlight.
Trip to the Beach
It was sure hot
but it was fun.
the Pirates Dinner, Grandma Trudy, Nick, and Auntie Rachel danced at the
Pirates' Disco Bash!
some great moves and was quite the ladies' man. And we had fun because I
hadn't danced in ages. Heck, even Uncle Brian danced a song.
We won the coin toss and got a great room... but the time share itself had
three bedrooms and three bathrooms! Talk about luxury, geez...
Universal Studios - Islands of Adventure
I went on all of
the rollercoasters that everyone else went on. The only thing I didn't go
on was the elevator type ride, you know the one that is vertical.
