On the road again... with family! (Orlando, Florida)

Unlike some of our other trips, little will be blogged about the plans and preparation that went into the trip, because, well, we didn't really have to do much of that! We are fortunate enough to be guests on a family vacation to Orlando, Florida, courtesy of Jon & Barbara (Bram's parents) who have done all the planning, booking and organizing of this trip.

So the key players on this trip are:
Bram and me (Lori)
Bram's parents, Jon & Barbara
Bram's sister, Arwen
Arwen's husband, Taavo
and their 4 children: Poe, Mae, Evi and Teo

Yup, that's 10 of us! All picked up in this swanky ride to the airport!

After a bit of a stressful start and some rude employees at United, we were on our way.

(Bram adds) During the flight, we saw a circular rainbow outside the window!  It was hard/impossible to photograph through the glass etc. but it was an amazing sight.(end Bram)

Since we arrived at our hotel somewhere between midnight and 1:00 am, we decided to have a fairly low key day around our hotel, the Hilton Grand Vacations at Seaworld Villas. Bram and the girls had some fun in one of the many pools. (It's going to be difficult adding in "and Teo" when he gets old enough to participate... but for now he's only 6 months old!!) Poe and Mae love the water and are like little fishies!

The rest of the day was mostly lounging, walking, exploring, and stocking up. Stay tuned for more adventures as we explore places like Discovery Cove, Universal Studios, and of course Disney World!
