This is where I will be very, very soon:
So we've been MIA the last little while because, one, Greg was taking the CFA (it's OVER, Allora!) After a 9 hour day at the testing site on Saturday, he is done! We find out his score within the next two months.
Also, my cousin Tania from Provo, Utah, came and visited us last week. If I do not have easy access to Greg's phone, I am pretty terrible at taking pictures. As in, Greg and I have almost zero documentation of our first two years of marriage. But although I don't have photographic evidence, I can tell you that Tania and I went to the beach a few times, went shopping at the Town Center, took a trip to St. Augustine, and just generally had a good time. So fun to have family come here!
Which brings me to our next adventure... Orlando with the Zollingers! Greg's dad has a conference there (he is the Internship Director at BYU-I), and Greg's mom and three sisters are coming too! Also Greg's brother Morgan and his family are flying down from D.C., so we will be quite the crew. (I wish Kellen's and Matt's families could come too! We will miss them!) Of COURSE we are headed to Disney. OF COURSE. I can't believe we've lived in Florida for five months and this is our first time.
The tentative plan is to go to Discovery Cove this Thursday, Hollywood Studios on Friday, and Sea World on Saturday (I could be wrong. It's been quite the process picking Which Park on Which Day).
I think I am the most excited about Discovery Cove. It is a lesser known park where you can swim with the dolphins. Like this:
Or maybe more like this guy:
Unfortunately, it costs extra to swim with dolphins, so we actually won't get to do that (yeah, misleading, I know...I just wanted to post dolphin pictures on the blog). But we will get to snorkel with fishes, stingrays, and otters. If you ask Greg, he'll tell you I have a completely irrational fear of wild fish or fish not behind glass. I don't know why. Looking forward to conquering that this weekend, my friends.
But my question is, has anyone been to the parks in Orlando before? What are your favorite rides/attractions? Any insider information we should be aware of before we shell out the majority of our last paycheck in order to spend three days in commercialized paradise wearing entirely not enough sunscreen? Let me know!
WE ARE SO EXCITED.
