So Watcha Been Doin' Down in F.L.A.? (part 2-May)

I was looking back at old posts and saw this one that was written back in February. Little did I know as we spent that month in Orlando while my husband worked, that we would be packing up and moving here less than three months later.
I have not been the best blogger since we got here, so this is my attempt to fill in some of the blanks since we arrived. I figured I'd start with May. The unpacking and getting settled are givens, but apart from that we...

Went to Sea World (yes, we love it there) for the opening of
Manta, which is now officially my favorite roller coaster ever.





Ice sculpture at the event I couldn't resist taking a picture of....


Before we rode, we popped on into a nearby aquarium for a photo op...


We headed to the coast....

To find a good spot for our summer vacation...

We met up with old friends...


And I was glad Goofy and I talked that morning about what shirts we were going to wear...


Daddy helped each girl catch a lizard....


We said goodbye as we let each one go. This one ran home; but not before biting Savannah...
Mommy explored her favorite places she didn't have in Las Vegas....

Samantha turned four - and almost lost the "who can go the longest without talking" game....


Daddy's a Star Wars fan, so we couldn't miss this...


We met some of our new neighbors...



And as they left.....

We realized they couldn't read...

We drove in a lot of this....

But had fun in spite of the view....

We didn't mind because there was plenty of this....


And that concludes May.

So your new to FL.. hmm. I must have missed that.
Your blog post reminds me of when we first moved here. We did ALL kinds of the same stuff. We had Disney season passes and traveled the state a lot. It's so much fun exploring.

Did I already ask you where you are in FL? We are in Volusia County.

Have a great Sunshine state day :-)

Yall look like you are having a blast! I might have to make a trip over to Sea World next time I'm down there as that coaster does look really cool.

Isn't IKEA dangerous? I always walk out with something I really don't need and waste lots of hours just wandering around.

Wow that ride looks amazing. Wonder if they'll put one at San Antonio? They offer free passes to military and we've gone every year so far.
