The Portofino Bay Hotel is designed like an Italian village. It is very pretty there with numerous yummy restaurants to choose from.
Here’s Mimi and Bampie will the grands. We love sharing grandchildren with them.
We had lots more to see at Islands Of Adventure.
The Harry Potter section was amazing.
I haven’t read any of the books but it was fun seeing everything.
I didn’t dare go on the ride the first day we went but Son and grands did and it was wild. I figured I would give it a whirl the last day and it wasn’t open!! They were having mechanical issues. :o(
These were the talking pictures.
Then on to Jurassic Park. It has a roller coaster that takes you through some water and I did not want to spend the rest of the day walking around in wet clothes so we opted out. It’s one thing if it is 90* and your clothes dry out in an hour or so but where we had been walking around in the rain for two days we really didn’t want to add to it.
The kiddos wanted to rock climb so up they went! Even their Dad joined in.
We always try to pick up a couple of new hats while there for Crazy Hat Nite at Awana.
We happened to notice this little guy munching on something. We also saw one at the pool munching on a cherry from someone’s drink!
There was much, much more that we did for the week that we were there. One day the kids, Son and the Grampies went over to Disney for the day while DIL, Mimi and I shopped for Christmas. The best part was being together and making memories.
Well guess what? We are supposed to get up to a foot of snow this weekend! What’s up with that?! Mom and Dad are supposed to fly out Sunday morning to go back to Florida so now we are wondering if they will have a flight. Bangor International has one of the longest runways in New England as it was once an airbase so if the planes can make it in from where they are coming from we can usually get out snow or no snow but we’ll see….
We are headed to Tennessee next month to Blackberry Farm where we went two years ago. I can’t wait, they have the most gorgeous well bred horses around for us to ride. The Hubs has classes part of each day but there is plenty for me to do there on my own or with one of the other wives. Anyone know what the weather will be like in Tenn. in November????
