9:30 EST Day 2

Horrible night sleeping for some reason. Maybe the bed was too bouncy. Anyway I'm up now with Riley & we're hanging out on our front porch enjoying the warmth and each other's company.



I am so happy to be here, for Rye's sake and our family's sake. Just to be AWAY from everything has been such a relief, even though we just got here.

Haley is still sleeping and at this rate, we may miss the big breakfast. Marci is at the orientation and should be back shortly.

In the meantime, I'm gonna hang out & enjoy Rye's company.

12:45EST

Waiting for lunch. Spent a fun morning hanging out at GKTW. Lots of fun stuff for us to do, all of it FREE!

Rye got a tasty strawberry shake. The kids got wish pillows. We got a free lunch. It's pretty cool!

9:45EST

Wow. That was fun! After lunch we headed to Universal and ended up going to Islands of Adventure. Not the most kid friendly, but it had Dr. Seuss-Land and we wanted to hit that up. We went on the One Fish 2 fish ride. That was fun. Me + Hay got all wet. It was hot and sunny today. Pretty crowded too. I took a ton of pix and had fun documenting.

The whole MAW/GKTW pass was awesome. We got to the front of the few rides we did. We also got to "meet" Spider-man and get an autograph. Later on, Storm, Rogue and Wolverine came by and we got to have special meet + greet with them due to the passes. Very cool. We did a few more rides and bought some souveniers. And it is so much fun to do it on someone else's dime. Everyone should get an opportunity to travel without worrying about money.

We headed back to the Villa for some dinner (not so yummy) and partying as it was Mayor Clayton's birthday @ GKTW. Dancing and tons of pictures ensued. Haley + I had Dippin Dots and then we all took a train ride.

All in all, it was a very fun day. Haley had a few moody moments - quite a few, actually, including now, at 10:00pm. Overtired and she simply can't control herself. Super annoying and it gets our goat every time.
