All Good Vacations Must Come To an End....

5 days in Orlando, including 2 days at Universal, a couple of days at the pool, and visiting friends......ah, can you say "Perfect Vacation"?! We had such fun!

We arrived early at the park and were chosen as the "Honorary Family" to open the park! Kierstyn said, "Hi! My name is Kierstyn and I am from Chattanooga, TN. Welcome to Universal Studios Orlando. The park is now open. Lights, Camera, Action!" (and of course Trevin was a cutie holding the sign)
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter was really cool. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. ride!

Mmmmm.....Butterbeer and Pumpkin Juice! We also got some Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans. Earwax, vomit, or earthworm flavored jellybeans, anyone?

I'm pretty sure Kyler and Kierstyn's favorite ride was the Hulk. They rode it 6 times! (and I, for one, am glad they are big/old enough to do it on their own because there is NO WAY I was about to ride this one!)

Look! Mom and Dad were there, too! :)
We have a new list of movies to see: Jurassic Park, Twister, Men In Black. Most of the attractions at Universal Studios were of movies that my kids have never even seen.

THE wettest water ride EVER. We all rode it together once and then the kids rode it again by themselves.
SOAKING wet!!!

I would have ridden it 6 times too! I'm a sucker for roller coasters. I'm so glad it was the perfect vacation! :)

Count me OUT when you watch Jurassic Park!!! What a fun vacation. PERFECT selection to open the park ~ that is awesome. Kierstyn right in her element and Trevin looking as cute as ever. I can see they took this responsiblity seriously! Happy everyone was happy and had a happy time ~ probably not so happy to return home. Yep, all good things must come to an end. . . . for awhile anyway. Great post.

So glad you all had such a great time! It's also a great time of year to visit FL. We have very happy memories of our last vacation there as well. I'm still loving your cookie game! We have yet to try but will definitely do it soon. :)
