Well, as this post was a complete surprise, I am just going to dive right in. I just got back from Orlando, Florida. Not delusional enough. Well, we (as in 26 of us in my extended family), did eight amusement parks in ten days. Everyday we went somewhere. Disney's Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, Downtown Disney, Universal Island of Adventure, Universal Studios and Sea World twice! Still not delusional enough.
Well, on the day that we left for Florida, I had surgery for my kidney stone. Yes, I did! Then, we drove from New York City to Orlando with a bunch of kids in each car. It took twenty-four hours to get there. As if that wasn't enough, we drove back. It took 1 1/2 days on the return trip. I cheated though. We stayed in Laurel, Maryland because I simply couldn't take it anymore. Since I do not want to bore you with the absolute insanity that occurred on this wonderful vacation, here are some pics:From left to right: Charlie Marie (my niece), Jerilee (my cousin), myself (looking hot and confused), Iris (my sister), Ayanna (my daughter). We are at the entrance to Animal Kingdom.
My niece Heaven, daughter Zionne and niece Hailey at Magic Kingdom.
This was the highlight. My little ones (nieces and my daughter Zionne in stripes) at Hogsmeade and Kings Station!
My nieces, cousin Jenny, Tamika (sister), Juan (brother-in-law) and my daughter Zionne drinking butterbeer.
And last but not least, my nieces are superheroes posing with Cyclops at Universal Island of Adventure.
