Having melted, we needed to make another stop on the way out



Hey, it was still happy hour and you just can’t beat a half price house margarita! Besides, we were walking right past it to go back to the hotel. We poked our heads into the main Margaritaville first though to see if they had happy hour, since I hadn’t seen it the night before



Music was playing





But the bar was a little quiet





The parrots were hanging



Red neck parrot picture





No happy hour in the bar so back to the Lone Palm for our margaritas. They really hit the spot after getting so overheated at the Agro Circus. Dinner wasn’t until 8:20 so even though it was now 4:30 we still had time for a swim and shower. We would have had time to take the E’s back to the park if they really wanted but everyone had had enough for that day, knowing we still had two more days of parks and preferring to spend our last evening with Sandie and Paul just enjoying each other at the pool and at dinner. And so we did. I didn’t take any pictures of the pool time but recall it as being absolutely perfect. refreshing and not rushed at all

Dinner was at the Hard Rock Café. I did buy the token souvie picture as we didn’t have much of the entire group.





And I tried to take some pictures inside but the lighting and my camera…well, you can see the results





We were seated in here





Kendall got a fancy dinner



And I’ve no idea whose this is



Dinner was fine, about what I expected. Nothing earth shattering, just overpriced for what it is, just like every hard rock café I’ve ever been to. It is VERY cool inside though, supposedly the biggest HRC (maybe in the US? I forget) but it's really really cool, I mean just the suspened pink cadillac was cool!. Though overpriced for what it is, we did have a secret weapon, the All Access Card and that did give us a 10% discount on our entire dinner and then in the store. We eyed items in the store and considered what we might come back later and get, but wanted to see what was at the hotel store first.

After that, I gave up photo taking for the day, save for this last night shot, walking back, our hotel glowing and lighting our way “home”.



Highlights of the day were definitely the WWOHP, Spiderman, Hulk, getting soaked on Jurassic and the Lone Palm Airport.

Lowlights were the Agro show, Posiedon’s Fury and having to wait that long for our lunch reservation. Not to mention the WWOHP crowds, though I’d expected those.

Tomorrow we’d say goodbye to Sandie and Paul and hit Universal Studios. As I mentioned before, none of us had been to the FL version and CA was so long ago that we remembered bits and pieces but that’s about it. We were going into it almost completely clueless, which was weird, but oddly exciting at the same time. And I think, smart. If you have no expectations, it’s much harder to be disappointed!

next, Where are my shorts?

Love margaritaville! I have th cutest pictures of Nick and Brian in there when they were about 7 and 8. Pre digital and I'm not into scanning, but take my word for it.

to 1/2 price margaritas.

Well, you know I'll be back to look at the pictures. Can't wait.

Sounds like a pretty perfect, very full day. Sounds like the pool was glorious and yeah to all the 10% off discounts!!! Just think how many ritas that will buy!

Wow! You got a lot done that day. The Lone Palm looks cool, even if I don't quite "get" Jimmy Buffet. It was also kind of cool that you all got some time for Taylor to do something he really wanted to do, even if it wasn't as much fun for you. Sounds like a super successful day and I'm looking forward to hearing more. Also, beautiful dress you wore for you HRC dinner picture. Beautiful colors.

OK- I just LOVED this update!!! Mythos- yum and intriguing. And Jeff's adoration of the Hemisphere Dancer cracked me up! Awesome family photo at the Hard Rock!

What a great afternoon and evening!

We will be at US/IoA in 3 weeks!

Great updates, Cynthia. Love Holy Moly - he is adorable.

Evan sure did look like he enjoyed his meal (too bad about the wait though).

You guys sure accomplilshed quite a bit during the day.

I always find my sundresses in Florida...I have a hard time finding them cheap in Chicago.

Okay, hands down my favorite part of your afternoon was hanging out at the Lone Palm Airport and drinking margaritas! That's the perfect way to spend a hot afternoon!!!

Nice way to get out of the heat.

Can't beat a AAA discount and 10% from the pass.

Interesting show and yup just for the boys.

The food was good, I think you will enjoy it. As long as you don't go in the summer, the show wouldn't be nearly so bad.

fish tacos!

Almost had them for lunch today but decided it was too messy to eat in front of a client.

Finally caught up! phew!

HP really does look cool. We probably won't be there for a couple years...we had a special family screening through work of the last HP film and I took Katie, even though neither of us had seen any of the other films. She didn't even last 15 minutes. We had to make a quick exit once the snake slithered onto the table to presumably eat the woman laying on it. After that, Katie has absolutely no interest in anything HP!

It is interesting seeing inside another Park. But do you keep comparing it in your head to Disney?

I really enjoyed seeing Sea World again in 2008, as I hadn't been there in about 20 years. However, the entire time I was there I just kept comparing it to Disney. Most of the times it came up short, except when comparing crowds.

That's ok on Jimmy, I won't take it personally It's just fun fun summer music to me, like vacation in my mind when I hear it. Add a margarita and

Thanks on the dress, that's my cheap sundress I bought at the park

What you may not have noticed is that in the plane pictures he is wearing a Hemsiphere Dancer Tshirt that I designed for him as an xmas present and then in the HRC dinenr picture, a different one that he bought the night before at Margaritaville. Evan's wearing a Buffet shirt too...which reminds me I've not seen that one, or his Hard Rock one in a while....hmmn.

Mythos was a fun lunch, I'd do it again.

A Cast?????? How LONG is that gonna be on? I hope it's off before cruise time....or at least changed to a water proof cast. I guess it could be worse - it could be a leg.

What happened?
