back from a fantasyland

We took a fun vacation last week to Orlando. Who knew there would be such a beautiful replica of Hogwarts there? Universal really did a great job with the Wizarding World. Walking through Hogsmeade, drinking a butterbeer, going on the Forbidden Journey with Harry, Hermione, and Ron, and doing the Dragon Challenge - awesome rollercoaster! - all of the Wizarding World experiences were fantastic.

Oh, and Walt Disney World was pretty great too. Especially loved Rockin' Roller Coaster at Hollywood Studios. And we also really enjoyed Mission: Space at Epcot. Tried it the easy way first, and it was a little too bland. Then we decided that the next day we would opt for the deadly "orange" version of the ride where it spins you so fast you feel the Gs like you are really taking off. Awesome.

We all four got along pretty well most of the time too, especially for spending almost every moment together for a full week. It was definitely the kind of vacation from which you need a vacation, though! So glad to be home!
