Our trip to Florida

Andrew and I had a great time in Florida this past week. It was fun spending time with his whole family. On Thanksgiving Day, we had the opportunity to drive over to Disney for the day. It was very crowded, but this would be our last chance to use the annual passes we got last December. After checking out the new DVC Resort, Bay Lake Tower, which was beautiful, we went to the Magic Kingdom.Being Thanksgiving Day, we had to have a Turkey Leg. The park was so crowded, we had to wait close to an hour to ride Pirate of the Caribbean. That is Andrew's favorite ride, so we ride it first every trip. That is the only ride we went on, because it was so crowded. We walked around the Magic Kingdom, and then went to find somewhere to eat Thanksgiving Dinner. We ended up at our "home" resort, Saratoga Springs. We ate at the Turf Club. I had the Pork Roast, and Andrew had the NY Strip. Everything was very good. I'm sorry, but I forgot to take any pictures!
After dinner we went to Hollywood Studios. There, we did something that neither one of us has ever experienced at Disney. We went to the The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. It was incredible. The buildings were covered from top to bottom with Christmas lights. Every 10 minutes the music starts and the lights "dance" to the music. At the end, it actually snows!! What a neat experience. Here are some pictures of the lights. (Sorry for the poor quality, pictures were taken with my iPhone.)
After that, we went to get some Coffee for Andrew and a milk shake for me, and drove the hour and half back to Tampa. What a great Thanksgiving Day!

The rest of the weekend was spent with his family just hanging out. It was great to spend time with Family, and I'm glad we were able to make the trip down.
