Here we are the first day of our vacation. Can you tell it was raining cats and dogs and everything else?!
We didn’t let that stop us though, the Hubs got us all ponchos and umbrellas and off we went.
It was a warm rain but at times came down so hard we had to get in out of it. The park looked rather ghostly with so many in white ponchos.
Here we are waiting for the rest of the group to finish looking around in a gift shop.
The next morning it was still pouring so we decided to hit a mall that we like and hoped it would clear off by the afternoon. We always go to Shelpler’s for boots, jeans and other horse attire and related things.
Here is Mr. D and Son. Don’t tell Mr. D he is in the gal picture!
Here is Son and DIL.
Next we went to Ron Jon’s Surf Shop. I like to get the kids Christmas things there and it’s a fun place.
Hey! How did they get that picture of me????!!!!! Snicker, snort!!!!
I loved the surf board rugs, would be great for a place on the ocean.
Next we were off to Bass Pro Shop. We hit it right as they had some fun things to see and do.
How do you suppose one of these little guys would like Maine?
Hey, I’d like to have this set up in my back yard although it would be a bit chilly in January. :o)
After two days we finally got some wonderful sun. My grand kids love to feed the ever present ducks and herons. They especially like popcorn and Fruit Loops.
We grabbed a buggy ride over to Universal Islands of Adventure.
This poor guy had a BIG load with all of us!
We decided on the way over to have lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe. The food was good but it was much too loud for this grandmother! :o(
OF COURSE the first ride they wanted to go on was The Hulk. I was the camera holder as I don’t do big roller coasters……I thought of you Tina!
How would you like to do this at 65 mph??????
This isn’t a very good picture but it’s these extremely high towers that you go up in a seat and then it drops you like a rocket back down. Once again I was the camera holder, do we seem to be getting a theme here?
I did do the Mummy ride, it was wild but you didn’t go way up in the air and turn upside down. :o) Then on to Spiderman, teacups, the Hulk again, and Jaws.
Jaws was fun and the fake shark was quite realistic looking, for a fake shark that is. The ride was even supposed to be in Maine! Yay!
Then we went to an animal show and it was adorable! Now this is more my speed!
There were a bunch of dogs that did some cute things and the music was Who Let The Dogs Out and then the pig came out with this on. He was the star of the show.
Look at the size of that skunk!
When pigs fly.
This was one of the 26 labs that played the part of Marley in the movie Marley and Me. This young man was chosen out of the audience to help with some of the skits.
Mr. D went shopping with Grampie and bought mugs for everyone.
We always like to eat at Trex restaurant. Amazing animatronics. There were dinosaurs everywhere moving around!
We love Legos and what they do with them at Downtown Disney. I can’t imagine how long it took to make these displays. These were all new since the last time we were there.
Continued next time. :0)
