Shopping again...

More dodgy weather so more Women's World Cup in the morning and then off to the Mall. When we got back Hayley kept watch as...
...Hunter checked out the kayaks and ...

...did some fishing.

We didnt catch anything but there are always interesting things to see. Our dolphins visited again this morning, we have a resident Osprey who eats his catch right off our balcony, we saw a snake bird, there are lots of mullets, manatees and some other things we cannot identify. Planning for an early night tonight, then hoping the weather will work for a trip to Busch Gardens.

Florida Aquarium

The overcast drove us to indoor activities so after watching some World Cup we headed over to the Florida Aquarium.
We had a good time there then had a very late lunch at Cody's Roadhouse. Jared and Elena came by and collected Emily just after 8, I think she and my two will get to sleep really early tonight, they had an absolute blast the past few days. Nice to see Jared too, a fine young man.

Breakfast Treat

Our first dolphins came to visit this morning. They did some jumps and swam around as we ate our breakfast. So excited! Makes the aquarium so much less appealing now.

Adventure Island

The three amigos at Adventure Island!
Make that four!

Hunter on the speed slide, yes the speck at the top left.

Hayley and Emily were last down this slide before they closed the park due to lightening.

My snuggler learning her way around the kitchen...:-)

We had two days in Orlando and the vote was Magic Kingdom for the first day. We rode Splash Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Space Mountain; probably not the smartest thing for me to do while suffering with the flu!
It was a magical day until the thunderstorms moved in late afternoon.

We rode alot of rides and saw some parades,

then it was time for dinner. Don't let that look fool you... he ate all his snow crab and most of mine!

Now in our "home away from home" in Tampa, Emily has just arrived and we are off on more adventures!
