Trip to Florida a wonderful time

Florida gets more beautiful every time we go.

It was such a wonderful blessing to see my cousins Phillip, Dale, Linda, Susan and of course, Aunt Myrtle.

I loved watching my 84-year-old mother, Vanetta, taking in all the sights as the airplane took off and landed.It was like watching a child opening a gift.

Bob loved the condo best of all, but why we chose to go the weekend that would repeat Noah's experience of the rain I have not quite figured out. The rain came in buckets it seemed.

We went to the Holyland Experience and spent an hour standing in a restaurant waiting for the rain to stop. Well, that never happened so we left and hope to return at a later date. Somehow, though, Florida is wonderful whether it is rain or shine. There is always something to do in Orlando. Hello, to all of our friends and family in Orlando!
