Florida Vacation

After a wonderful week up north with all the Lewandowski/Notch/Roesner families, we headed south. All the way south to Orlando, Florida!

We got off of our plane from MN just as my parents were arriving from Arkansas and we took a taxi to our hotel The Fountains. This beautiful new resort had a great pool area, screened in porches off of the suites, and it was brand new! We enjoyed a visit from my aunt and uncle, Kathy and Terry, and then Chris arrived later that night.

We spent the next couple days exploring some of the fun activities Orlando has to offer. First stop- Magic Kingdom!

Zeke took his very first ride on "It's a Small World". He was enamoured with all of the lights and sounds. He actually seemed to enjoy it quite a bit!

The other Disney destination for us was Epcot. We were joined by my cousin Scott, and had a blast checking out some of the cool things Epcot had going on.

We were very impressed by a ride called Soarin' which was a surround screen, hang gliding tour- very cool. The other thing we really loved was a space simulator ride called Mission: Space. They hand out barf bags on a regular basis, so it's pretty intense- especially for Epcot! In our "space shuttle" we each had a job. I was the Commander. I pressed my two buttons at just the right times, and our flight through space was a blast!

After 4 days of Florida fun, it was time to head back to Arkansas to get ready for Zeke's baptism.
