The Florida Chronicles Part 5

Being pretty stinkin' worn out from last night, I slept in till about 10 am!  I awoke to find breakfast from Panera.  Mmmm, my hubby sure knows me!  For reasons I'll not go into now, we ended up calling many places in the area to finally find Jonathan a pull string Woody doll.  It was too cold to go to the beach unfortunately :(  After that we went to a fun book shop where I could have probably stayed all day and spent lots of $$.  However, not a penny was spent which was a good thing.

What they do to every bowl of ketchup.  Cute!

It was already lunch time at this point.  We found Bonefish Grille which looked fabulous and piled out of the car only to find out that it didn't open till 4pm.  Stink!  So, on to Johnny Rockets, which still proved to be fun.

After that we headed out to a place called Shell World.  Since we didn't go to the beach, I was hoping to find shells that were originally found on the Florida shores.  We were in luck!!!  I got a few other things to which we'll be using for school as well as having them as souveniers.    Next, on to our hotel to get some R and R till a bit later.  Joshie, Matt and I are all ready for a nap.  They are already sleeping while I'm blogging away.  I better lay my head down before nap time is over.  More later :)

 The view outside our resort.  So pretty at night!

The nap was fabulous!  Matt and I both woke up more refreshed than when we went down.  We decided to try out a BBQ place in Winter Park.  We got ribs, briskit and pulled pork along with sweet potato fries and coleslaw.  The food was fabulous!  The little town was gorgeous as well.  If we ever make it back down to Florida, we hope to stay for a bit in Winter Park.

After dinner we arrived back at the hotel and played on the club house.  This was our first time in there and boy, a person could spend a lot of $$$ in there if they weren't careful.  You get 4 tolkens for ever dollar you put in the vending machine.  The kids played a racing game where you sit in the race car seat.  Jon and I played a hunting game which was SO fun!  For every shot you took, you had to cock the gun and reload.  It was sweet!  Matt and I both tried our hand at winning prizes.  We also went in the photo booth together which was so fun!

Well, we will now call it a night after we get back into our hotel room and pack up.  We must leave early tomorrow morning if we want to get to Tennessee at a reasonable time to once again sleep and wake up early.  Homeward bound; I'm not sure if I'm ready for it quite yet.
