Avery's book of poems

Thursday, April 8, 2010


For spring break we were able to go to Florida for 5 days. We flew on an airplane, this was Avery's first time flying. She was so excited, she loved the turbulence, take off's and landings she was laughing the whole way. When we landed we drove to Kissimmee which is about a 20 minute drive. The next morning we decided to go to Gatorland. This was so much fun the kids I would definitely go here again. They loved looking at all the alligators, birds, riding the train and we watched the alligator wrestling show. It was beautiful weather so being outside was so nice. The next day we got up and went to Disneyworld and Epcot. It was a lot of fun and exhausting at the same time. The kids had so much fun and of course Avery went on her favorite ride Thunder Mountain Railroad. Epcot was fun to look at but not much to do. The next day we were ready to conquer Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios but the weather had other plans. It poured all day long so we went shopping to some flea markets and then headed for the coast. We checked into our hotel on Cocoa Beach. It was so nice and relaxing to just play on the beach and hang out at the hotel. We went on a boat tour and saw dolphins, manatees, birds and learned a lot about Cocoa beach. It was a lot of fun and the kids enjoyed it. Sorry there are a lot of pictures.

Avery, happy as can be.


Looking at the white alligator. The kids thought it was fake because it never moved.
The baby alligators.On the train ride at gatorland.


At Disneyworld!
Avery was so excited to get her picture taken with these guys

even though they were cardboard.This guy was at Epcot.

On the boat tour.
This is a manatee it was so cool to sit and watch them in their natural habitat.
Walking to the beach from our hotel.

Hangin out at the pier.
Who needs sand toys when you can do this with your head.
