So, after 3.5 years of avoiding Orlando, we are coming back! What have we been doing since the DW vacation? Camping in Idaho twice (I LOVE Sandpoint - the cutest place!), a road trip on our Can Am Spyder, 2 trips to Puerto Vallarta, 1 trip to Maui, camping along the coast of Oregon while riding quads, 1 trip to Yuma with a side trip to Glamis to ride quads, and NO amusement parks. That is now about to change. My mother, myself, and my now 26 year old (he was the teen in the 2009 pictures) are the Harry Potter fans in the family. Unfortunately, my son has to work and is going to school (to date, he is on the 8 year plan - eye roll here). It will be mom (adventurous 70+ year old) and me (adventurous 50+ year old). We have been talking about visiting Universal Orlando for a while, but just couldn't find good airfares that would justify it. When I can go to Mexico or Hawaii for almost the same price, well..... We finally found decent priced air fares but it will mean that I have to take my personal days from work but oh well, I have 4 days built up. I posted a trip report in March 2014 under my husband's account. Here is a link that hopefully works. If not, hopefully a moderator knows how to fix it. The picture thing is wonky, but I think you can click on them and see them. If not, let me know and I will ask my computer savvy 24 year old to figure it out, heehee. https://www.disboards.com/threads/w...eek-2014-2-updates-4-6.3256408/#post-51137906 Anyway, this is my start. I will add updates but now I have to water the garden and pick beans, cukes, and tomatoes. 50+ days of no rain in Tacoma = daily watering.
