We're Back!

Our trip was fun, but naturally we're glad to be back home relaxing with the pups! The first day we got there we went to Typhoon Lagoon water park and it was so much fun...but we were only there three hours before a really bad thunderstorm with lightning came! They closed all of the rides and you had to sit underneath little huts that had lightning rods on them. We figured it was like any other Florida storm---would last about an hour and be gone. But, this one lasted all day. We sat there for many hours just chatting with people and because we spent most of the day sitting in the rain, we got a free rain pass. So, instead of paying money to go to Animal Kingdom, we spent our next FULL day this time at Typhoon Lagoon on our free ticket. So, the rain actually was a good thing because it was like we got a day and a half for the price of one ticket!

Our favorite ride was the new Crush 'n' Gusher water coaster. We rode it several times and my cousin Kerry took a video of us on it, but it's just a tad difficult to hold on to a camera while you are being thrust down a water slide, so it's not all that detailed! :) We also loved floating down Castaway Creek and would sometimes jump in just to float to another attraction.

The Wave Pool

We swam with (BABY)hammerhead sharks and fish but I didn't get any great pictures, however, Kerry paid extra to surface scuba with a regulator and got some great videos of the fish being calm and then an awesome feeding frenzy when the guy came and put out new lettuce.

Later that night we went to Old Town Kissimmee just down the road from the resort.

We did some shopping and stayed late in a tavern listening to people sing karaoke. It was highly entertaining!

Sounds like such fun! Typhoon Lagoon is on my wish list this year - it was closed during our last visit. Great photos! :)
