Our First Summer Trip! 3 Canucks Tackle Orlando in August: A Trip Report (Complete!)
Hello again everyone . Welcome to my second trip report!
For those who read through my first attempt at trip reporting earlier this year (joining in on reminiscing about our adventures at Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, SeaWorld and Discovery Cove from during New Years week ... see link to that thread in my signature below), I am glad to have you along for the ride once again .
Those hopping aboard for the first time, its nice to have you! I always enjoy the opportunity to make more friends .
So.......let's get to it, shall we?
First off, a small introduction. Let me introduce you to my cast of "characters" (don't worry, this will be quick and painless ):
That's me in the middle. But I am certain you already guessed that. I am Gina, mom to the guy on the right and wife to the guy on the left. An admittedly Type A personality, I share alot of traits with Monica from Friends. I hope you won't hold that against me .
On the left is Steve, my husband of 19 years. He is the exact opposite of me: physically, emotionally, and mentally. He's technically oriented where I'm academically oriented. He's calm where I'm high-strung. He goes with the flow where I must have everything organized at every moment or I tend to come unglued. He's tall and I'm short. Yet somehow, our differences seem to draw us even closer together. Go figure. Sometimes good things just can't be completely explained. .
On the right is Jake. My boy. He's 16 years old, and just completed grade 10 in June. Not a day goes by I don't thank my lucky stars for this kid. You will see his sense of humour in many of the pics that I will be posting in this review. He is awesome at humouring his picture-crazy mother at all the cheesy photo ops we stumble across on our vacations. And he's becoming quite a good photographer himself....most of the pics of me you will see are taken by Jake, because God love Steve, he can't seem to take a good picture to save his life (and the ones that he eventually gets are the sixth, seventh, or eighth attempt ).
And so.....that's us. And we are about to embark on a week in the Florida sun. At least, we hope there will be some sun. Did someone say it rains alot in Florida in August?
