Spring Break Day Four

Universal Islands of Adventure is a really neat theme park.

An example of how my mom is weird... She found nothing wrong with

  • The concept of hat as popcorn bowl
  • Wearing the hat, after the popcorn was eaten

We got to the park right at 9. We used valet parking to shorten the walk in and out of the park as much possible. Daddy has a bum knee, so walking is problematic. And yet, we walked the entire theme park. Go us.

The lines were wonderfully short. I got a number of pictures of ride estimate signs, as proof. I took lots of pictures of the boys, and of Mom and Dad. The park provided lots of photo ops.

Walking the entire park once around was enough for me, and I felt no sorrow about leaving the park at 3:40 to watch a movie. The boys didn't mind, since the movie was Agent Cody Banks.

I'm full. Lots of park food, but not the worst examples. No actual junk food. Just starbursts, pizza, ham/egg/cheese sandwich and a cheeseburger. I lasted a pretty good chunk of the day outside, and Didn't Get Sick. Go me.

I'm glad we're not doing another theme park tomorrow. :)

    While sleeping under a ceiling fan may not cause death, it can contribute to a dry air morning sore throat. I put up with the sore throat because…
