Florida Vacation

It is good to be home! It seems so cold. Had to turn on the heat last night to warm up the house. I think it was supposed to get down into the 30's last night. It is a far cry from the 80 and 90's we had last week in Florida. I don't think we ever made it to the pool before 8:00 pm on any day, and it never seemed that cold.

We arrived on Saturday, and found the hotel, got some supper, then went swimming.
On Sunday and Monday we drove out to Kennedy Space Center. Monday was the launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis that we watched from the Astronaut Hall of Fame. The boys got to meet and get an autograph from Astronaut Bob Springer. There were lots of people and it was very hot, but was a really awesome experience. Tuesday we all went to Aquatica, which is Sea World, water park. We went down some pretty scary slides. Very neat park, but we all got burned except Ben and Noah. Wednesday we went to Sea World. They have a new roller Coaster that hangs you face down. Randy and John went on it, and thought it was the best one of the whole trip. Thursday and Friday we went to Universal Studios. They had some very cool rides too!

Over all there sure were a lot of people at all the parks, and this is supposed to be their off season. Most of the time we only had to wait 20-30 minutes to get on a ride, so it wasn't too bad. I would hate to go when the wait times are 50-60 minutes for each ride.

Noah's baseball game for yesterday got rescheduled to today, so we are off to Syracuse. This will be the first game of the year for us.
