Orlando Christmas HolidayDecember 26-30, 2014
We had a nice Christmas holiday. Anne and Rusty came in from New Orleans on Sunday the 21st, and that was great. Robert and his family came in from Lanett, Alabama to Orlando on Friday the 26th and we all joined him there at the Marriott Orlando World Center.
That night we all went to the Medieval Times dinner theater and show, and had a very good time. We liked the "com petition" thopugh "our" knoight didnm't win. And the mealing was good and filling.
The next day we went to WonderWorks and had just as good a time, never dreaming that there were so many things to do there. They advertised all kinds of interactive attractions and there were many, as they said.
The next day we went to Ripley's Believe It or Not which was interesting and then to the Boggy Creek Airboat Rides where we got the wind in our face and chances to see alligators in the wild.
The next day was Gator Land, another very good family adventure. This is what I would call an "old time" park with various shows on the hour including alligator wrestling and the "Gator Jumparoo Show." Our ticket also included a train ride and everyone got Gator food (four turkey dogs each) to feed to the critters.
When we were not out and about enjoying Orlando activities, we had very good times at the Marriott. We had excellent accommodations thanks to our friend Philip, and we had good times in our room and also swimming in the heated pool and enjoying the hot tubs there.
Sadly but understandably Rusty and Anne had to go back a bit early to Orlando and the rest of us made it home the next day. Robert and Natalie and the boys visited with her grandparents foir a day in Clearwater and then we got them back for another day which included a Nerf Gun war and wings. Robert and Nat left early the next morn and made it safely back to Lanett.
