    That's what we do too so why is mine any different?

    WE get there for opening and do as much as possible before it gets too hot and crowded then take it easy in the afternoon.
    Every other day is water parks or shopping or a pool day.

    Mum phoned yesterday and they are having a fab time.

    They stayed in Kissimee over night Thursday and did Seaworld Thursday and US/IOA Friday.

    They loved all the parks and Dad did most of the rides including Mummy.Mum wasn't quite so brave and Simpsons and Spiderman were her limit.
    Dad did the other rides with the lady of the couple (neighbours) that they went with and loved Men in Black.They gave the big coasters a miss though.

    They loved Shamu but decided Manta looked way to scary!

    Hopefully Dad has taken lots of photos of Manta and Rip Ride Rockit.

    They loved Busch Gardens too and will be returning there in their second week.

    We are off shopping in a bit but we are ringing them at 2pm at the condo before they go off out for the day.

    Have spoken to Mum and Dad again tonight and they have had another great week.
    They have been to KSC,Wet 'n' Wild and Aquatica(can't believe they have been there before us!)
    Today they went to a huge outlet mall in Tampa.
    I tried to phone them earlier but got a message to say they were still down by the pool!
    They are hoping to catch the shuttle launch in the morning before they head for the airport and home.
    I can't wait to see them and hear all about their trip.

    They've certainly had a great trip. I reckon they've enjoyed themselves more than they ever imagined they would.

    Oh they have Diane but say they don't want to go again as it was just too much to be on the go every day.
    They are both very tired and are looking forward to getting home for a rest!

    Oh no have just found out that today's shuttle launch has been cancelled so they won't be able to see it now before they come home.
