Day 13 – A day of recovery

After a rather busy 12 days and only two days left in Orlando we decided on a day of rest and organisation (as I was starting to feel a little overwhelmed with what I wanted/needed to get done). Christy played with her toys while I started packing up our souveniers.

We spent some time working on our smashbook ablums.

When we got hungry for lunch I headed out around the lake….

to the poolside cafe to pick up some takeaway lunch.

My view while I waited for our lunch to be made.

Christy had nachos and I had a very yummy Floridian Salad.

In the meantime Kevin and Amy had headed off to The Holyland Experience. Yes, he’s an atheist but it’s somewhere he’s always wanted to visit. They both agreed it was a waste of time and worse than they expected. But at least they can say they have been.

When they arrived back, much earlier than expected, Kevin, Christy and I headed down to the lazy river for a float around.

Christy took this self portrait.

After the lazy river, we had a spa, then dried off in the sun before heading back upstairs.

Look, our room is all nice and tidy again.

We got dressed again and headed out to Super Target, another store I have been wanting to visit.

It certanly is super. Probably about 6 times the size of a target back home.

We had fun wandering the aisles and got very excited to find Pee Wee Pillow Pets, of course we all got one.

There is also a Starbucks so I was able to get a peppermint ice chocolate. Yum, but not as good as the one from Godiva.

And check out all these Christmas Cakes. They look great but I’d be too scared of the ingredients to eat one.

This fruit, however, I’d love to eat. And since we never get raspberries so cheap at home I bought a punnet, and we got some blackberries as well.

Here’s some of our loot.

Kevin made a quick stop at Best Buys then we went to dinner at TGI Fridays.

It was our first visit here and we really enjoyed it.

I had a very delicious blackbean burger with sweet potato fries….

and Kevin had some ribs (not too often you see meat on this blog :-)).

Back home Christy and I did a bit more of our smashbooks (trying to catch up) and then we watched Glee. But I mucked up the times so we missed the first half :-(. Can’t believe it’s our last day here tomorrow.
