Universal Islands of Adventure

On February 8, we headed out in "somebody's car" to Universal Islands of Adventure.  We met up with cousins Eric, Cari, Cal, Teddy, Mimi, and Lena.  Again, it was a bit chilly with on and off rain.  Our family with Grandma and Leah headed out to the world of Dr. Seuss, where the kids rode on a Caro-Seuss-el, The Cat in the Hat, ...

... "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish," and other Seuss-inspired rides.

We then made our way over to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, where we enjoyed lunch, including a Butter Beer, at the Three Broomsticks!  Mommy, Daddy, Elsie and Duncan all rode The Flight of the Hippogriff roller coaster!  It was fast and the kids really loved it.

Mommy and Daddy sneaked away to ride an adult roller coaster, Dragon Challenge, and Daddy did not lose his lunch!  We rode on the Pteranodon Flyers and explored bridges and caves in Jurassic Park for a couple hours before the kids were ready to go back to the hotel and get dry and warm!  Once we were all changed and the laundry was started, we put on our Magic Bands and headed out to explore!

We rode the monorail around to the resorts, past Magic Kingdom, and back to our hotel.  Despite what you see in the picture, Duncan was so excited to be on the monorail.  Both of the kids felt so big standing and holding on instead of sitting in the seats.

We ate dinner at the Contempo Cafe before heading back to the hotel room.  Due to the weather, Isaac was stuck in his car seat for most of the day, so he was happy to be able to stretch out and play with some toys on a blanket in our room!  After we tucked the kids in, Grandma and Grandpa stayed in our room, so Jack and I could go out for a couple drinks at the Wave Bar.
