Vacation Time!!!

 Hello From the Wright Family........this past week was VACATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Any Guesses as to where we are??  he he he.....well if you have been to Florida or visited the website you know that we went to....
 Universal Studios/Universal Islands of Adventure.  We purchased the cheapest- FL resident yr round tickets and - went here 4 times this last week.  Now for those theme park lovers out there - YES it is not hard to spend a lot of money, BUT there are lots of easy ways to NOT spend that much money either (especially when you only live an hourish away)!!!!  I think I did a blog post on saving money at theme parks before.  Let's just say we do a lot of water from the tap refills, bring picnic lunches, and have a BLAST!!!!
 And our kiddos love theme parks.....hmmm.....wonder where they get that from????  Did I ever tell you that Jason and I's second official date was to Six Flags, St Louis???
 Awww......sooo cute!  These two have been pretending they are twins lately and love to wear matching or closely matching things all the time :) 
 Waiting in line at the Dr. Seuss area for the carousel....
 Abigail.......yes.....I have to take your picture too! 
 Jonathan looking for a small cubby hole to fit in.  Love it when littles do this :)
 Daddy & Joanna snuggling up together for the ride!
 Love the fun whimsical area.  Lots to just look at all around you. 
 Abigail....who is inching up to be almost as tall as I am- hahem???
 My little nut.....
And my two little nuts together.

So we had a great time!!!!!  It was funny getting in line waiting to "validate" our online tickets.  The lady asked the kids if they had seen- Twister, or Harry Potter, or The Incredible Hulk, or .........  No, no, nope.....  I just laughed and said no, but we will have fun any way.  We had a BLAST don't worry!!!!

Bonus to living here in Florida - at most parks here you get a FL discount!!!  WAHOOO!!!!  That is nice!!!
We also went to a state park, hung out at home, ordered out, went out to eat (a privilege for us), went to our lifegroup, and.....oh yeah.....I got extremely sick- yesterday :(  YUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I am still sick today!!!!!!!!!!!!  But I had to get out of bed for at least a bit.  I have swollen glands that look like softballs, and nasal congestion that is out of this world.  OYE!!!

Other than that- it has been a SUPER WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh and did I tell you we got our homestudy packet?  OH YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
Now to see how fast we can get that done.  Of course right now....I am going to go back to BED!!!!!


  1. Our last TWO trips to Universal got rained out! Our seasonal passes run out in two weeks so we're done--at least most of us. Rick got his later and I bought Ty a two day pass he didn't get to use because of the storm. The soda cup refills are only .79 andt he restaurant right before you get to Jaws has one of the machines where you can make 100 combinations. We ddin't find it until our last trip!! It's 6.5 hours for us each way.

  2. Wow! I'm so jealous! We plan to make a trip to florida in 2 years...yeah!!!

  3. Looks like a wonderful week!!!!! Never been to Universal. FUN!

    (We are theme park people too...)

  4. Better to be sick at the end of an amazing week, than at the beginning. :) Hope you are feeling better soon.
