    Oh wow, how cool was that for Steven!? Did you get photos of that, I hope? :D

    So pleased for you that things are going so well. As for Adrian's Mom, well maybe she won't come with you next time? :unsure:

    Lots of photos of the young Padawan. He was ecstatic that he got to battle Lord Vader. It was worth the morning dash to sign ups instead of the morning dash to Toy Story Mania. :lol:

    This morning Adrian, Steven and myself are off to Typhoon Lagoon for a few hours and then later on this afternoon we will all attempt to snack our way around World Showcase.:popbeer:

    Still have a big grin from watching Steven do Jedi Training.:star-wars-smiley-02

    ****! Nanny Lesley just phoned home and found out that one of their dogs got out and was hit by a car. Daisy has been checked by the vet and seems ok but Mum is 5000 miles away from her dog and very upset. Good job we have free phone calls here. :sorry:

    Oh poor Daisy! So relieved she is ok though. Hopefully Nanny Lesley can start to relax a bit again when she gets over the initial shock :(

    Brilliant about The Boy! Can't wait to see the pics!

    Glad to hear Daisy is OK. It is never good when you are that far away and you feel hopeless.

    Well, lets try to focus on the good part. Daisy has been checked out and is ok, so that's wonderful news! I know Nanny Leslie must be distressed, but all will be well. She can stop by some of those pet shop areas and get something special for Daisy. :yes:

    Now then. Jedi photos?

    Yesterday I was promised a thunderstorm by someone on the television and it never happened. :-(

    Anyway we went to Islands of Adventure yesterday. We so very nearly made park opening but someone put a Cinnabon in our way and made us all stop and eat one. So we were 10 minutes late. :D We went to Seussville first and did all the rides - yes we all went on them. Then we did Poseidon's Fury which Steven needed his ear plugs for. We sat and watched the talking fountain thing for a bit after this - very clever and very funny. After this we walked round to Hogsmead. Wow! The attention to detail is incredible. Trouble is, keeping it to size as in the books makes it very compact. And crowded. We had a butterbeer each and all pronounced it yummy. Ollivanders had a long line so we looked round the other shops. Steven bought a monster book thing which keeps going for me every time I walk past it. :eek: The ride lines were a bit long so we skipped as we had some non-riders and it wasn't fair to make them sit in the heat waiting for us. Jurassic Park next and we let Steven loose in the Discovery Center for half an hour which he enjoyed. We had a 1pm reservation at Mythos and waited about 3 minutes before being seated. Walk ups were being told 45 minute wait. This place was awesome. Amazing food and wonderful service. And I have to say extremely well priced for a theme park restaurant. Cannot recommend it enough. We skipped dessert and let Steven loose in Camp Jurassic. Twenty minutes later we drag him out soaking wet. He doesn't want to do the River Adventure but does want to do Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls. It has a 75 minute wait though so we make a deal to come back Monday morning and do the water rides. And then we add Spiderman to that as it has a 55 minute wait. We shopped our way out of the park and headed back to the villa for some pool time. My thunderstorm didn't appear. However, we did have Publix fried chicken for dinner. :wiggle:

    Animal Kingdom today. :D
