Guinea Pig Drivers

March 15, 2008 Leave a comment

Wow, can’t believe it’s already been a week!!! Started the trek home Friday, after 2 great days at Seaworld. Was very sad to leave, but will be nice to see home again, say HEY! to all our friends and family. Hopefully ChitChat and Butterscotch will still remember who we are. Puddles was a big help with the driving, got us thru Georgia and all the construction. We’re all looking forward to the next time we can visit the land of mice and make-believe, was a GREAT time.

Until next time…..

Day 4, or is it 3? 5? It’s kinda cool to lose track of what day it is. It’s nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the day to day, although I do kinda miss my own bed. Spent the day at SeaWorld, enjoyed the Shamu show, Ian was so mad that he DIDN’T get soaked by Shamu, although I can’t say my feelings were hurt. Saw a really neat animal show with cats, dogs, birds, mice, and even a pig. All former inmates at the local animal shelter. Pretty cool. Saw some nutty guys beating on Weber grills with drum sticks; actually making music.
Drummer Chefs

Saw a lot of cool sharks at one of the aquariums too.

More SHarkzes
Got to meet Kelly the Clydesdale.

and even met the Budweiser donkey

Ashlie this one is for you

We’re gonna make a return trip there tomorrow to see the rest of SeaWorld, maybe we’ll manage to get drenched by the world’s biggest killer whale.

Until next time…..

Live from Epcot – What’s Your Problem?

Day 3 – Checked out the land of EPCOT. It actually stands for something, I forget what; something about “experimental people somethin’, somethin’,somethin'”. Even though I have no clue what I’m talking about, it was very cool! Enjoyed some of the shows and rides in future land, including a goofy game show about velcro that I got roped (hooked and looped) into. Was fun, and enjoyed the kids cheering for me when I “won”.

The Nemo ride was cool, and we got to check out the really nice aquarium, and see the dol-a-fins 🙂

From there it was on to the other section of the park, where we ate our way around the world. . Oh, yeah and checked out the exhibits and met some neat people as the kids did a project at the “kidcot” stations at each country. watched an awesome fireworks/fire/water/light/laser show at the very end. kids are FINALLY all snoring in bed, getting rested up for Seaworld tomorrow.

Until next time…..

Day 2 – went to Animal Kingdom. Pretty cool place, like a zoo on steroids. There were different “countries” that we visited, but the coolest was Africa. It was very realistic; we’ve never been to Africa, but now it feels like we have. Was just like an African town, with a square and a restaurant, and a train station, and… well it was very real.
Everyone really enjoyed the safari ride, even with the 4 HOUR WAIT (sooo glad for “fastpass”). There were a couple other really neat animal exhibits, the kind you walk thru.

The Bug Life show was super cool – all 3-D and all, but it freaked Mini Matt out so bad he was crying and hiding his face. Think it had something to do with having “acid” spit at us, or “spikes” thrown our way. Kinda like yesterday at the haunted mansion – was a little too much for him.
Anyway, was a great day; on to Epcot tomorrow. We’re gonna need a vacation from vacation when we get back 🙂

Until next time…..

Yesterday was a wonderful day in MickeyLand, we visited the magic kingdom, got there when the gates opened, and stayed ’til they kicked us out. Rode almost every ride in the park! Checked out Mickey’s garden, found some very odd vegetables.

Note to self: don’t take 4-year olds on the haunted mansion ride…… I didn’t remember it being that scary, but when they shut the lights out at the beginning part it kinda freaked Mini Matt out.

Didn’t really stick around to meet any of the characters, lines were too long, but we had a really good day, and all the kids got a new set of ears.
