Yes, can you believe it! Short sleeves in December! Well in Florida that is. We were able to take a little vacation the first week of December to the sunshine state. It was all for play for me, and a little work for Kendall. Kendall had a pharmacy conference to go to in Orlando for a couple of days to get a closer look at some residencies he is interested in. It was a great excuse for me to tag along! My best friend from my hometown, school, and even a previous roommate, lives in Orlando, FL with her husband so of course I wanted to see her! Kami and Kyle have lived there now for about three years so it has almost been that long since the last time we were able to see each other. It was just like old time for me though, I miss her tons! They have a cute little town house and a little Pomeranian named Oso who is just a little ball of energy. They were so gracious in letting us stay with them and just being such great hosts to us. Thanks guys! Oh and Oso I miss you too (can't say the same for Kendall though). :) On the first day we were there Kami and Kyle took us to Tampa, FL were Busch Gardens is located. We spent all day in the park and had a great time on all the crazy roller coasters!!
We also turned it into a Disney vacation since Kendall has never experienced Disney World. We did two full days of Disney parks and it was great. But I do have to start out by saying thank you to my parents who took me to Disneyland and Disney World when I was younger, I appreciate it now after seeing how much money is EASILY spent in Disney World! Thanks mom and dad and family! Kendall and I had a fun time seeing all the young kids (girls especially) that were just decked out in Disney and princess stuff (which by the way the princess dresses were like 70 dollars a pop!). We did have a great time in Disney World though despite all the money we had to spend. We went to the magic Kingdom, which was Kendall's favorite, and then the Hollywood Studios (previously MGM studios), and then to Epcot, which is my favorite!
We rented a car while we were there so we could get back an fourth to parks and the convention center for Kendall. It was both of our first experiences with renting a car on our own. It was such a pain! First of all we are both under 25 so we have to pay extra per day and also all the other coverages that come along with renting a car. Of course there is all the extra charges too and we did rent a GPS so we could actually find our way around (thank heavens we had that!), and that too was extra! But we did get a very cool car! It was a brand new Nissan Altima coupe and it was a great ride! Maybe that is because I have never driven a brand new car... just my somewhat reliable cavalier.
All in all we had a great vacation, it was so nice to get away to warmer weather for a bit and to be kids again for a few days.
There are more pictures to come!!
