The rest of Florida (in a nutshell)

I've given up giving a day by day account of our FL vacation, but we spent lots of time at the beach--swam in the hotel pool and took long evening walks in the sand. We also cooked out by the pool several evenings--those were great nights. We went to Sea World one day (yes, it really WAS free for military!) and it was pretty neat--except Tajir was running a serious fever and we left after the first show and chocolate ice cream (which Taj hurled into a bag in the back seat. YUCK!) Taj wasn't really feeling well for the rest of the trip--he spent a LOT of time in the air conditioned room playing Playstation II. We found a great all-you-can-eat Oriental buffet--went there twice. We went through a Timeshare and VERY seriously considered investing--until we crunched the numbers. We spent a lot of time talking about "moving to the beach". I found the local Unity church and went both Sundays with Sascha and Zadina. Jeff found an artist to do the dragon tatoo on his chest that we've been discussing for over 10 years--he got it done the day before we left Daytona. Our last day in Florida we went to Universal Studios--Jeff and I liked that better than the Magic Kingdom, but the kids voted for MK. I was disappointed that it was only open until 6:00. That night we went to a Golden Griddle and celebrated Sascha's birthday a week early. We dropped Aria and Jeff off early Thursday morning for their Omaha flight and I drove back with Taj and Zadina and Sascha. We made good time and were back in Omaha Saturday afternoon. After church Sunday we drove home.
