Ok, so maybe I"m not soo spoiled...

Yep, I'm resorting to a dial up connection to check in online. Freely admitting now I've got me an addiction problem when it comes to all things gadgetry! While the condo has an Internet cafe, they charge an arm, a leg and might even want to hold a kid as a deposit to use this service. So, instead, I"ll give ole dial up a try. Gotta save my money for those $8 margaritas ya know (served in a lovely plastic cup, with only a hint of booze noted in the entire thing).

Seriously, we're having a lovely time. The trip out here was uneventful. Except that the movie they were showing was Happy Feet. Hello: it is a nighttime flight, filled with kids who not only want to sleep, they need to sleep. And yet, United offers this very kid friendly movie for free. Luckily, Thing One didn't realize he needed to change the channel to hear it in English so he gave up and went to sleep when he realized his Spanish wasn't good enough to appreciate this movie. We did manage to all catch a couple snoozes.

The vacation is going great. The cousins have just picked up where they left off and are playing like great pals. They've played mini golf, shot a few water basketballs hoops, checked out the Lazy River and watched fireworks at night (we're on the back end of Magic Kingdom, so we are enjoying a very obstructed but totally free show). Yesterday, we visited Grandpa's house. House is a term used very loosely but luckily he's decided to move on up to a bigger place so just maybe this will be our last visit to his winter "campground". (for those who love camping, I do to, but just not all the time). We also checked out a Carriage museum where Gramps works as a docent. He gave the kids a very nice personalized tour and we all learned a thing or two about horse drawn carriages (who knew there were so many types?).

But without a doubt, the highlight of the trip has had to be the Hippo. A giant inflatable water slide. The boys just can't get enough of this thing...

Here I go, try to upload a photo. Do I have enough patience to wait? Fingers crossed...Sorry for the tease, Blogger isn't cooperating with my attempts to load my large images at such a slow pace. Will try later on.

And now I"m off to get ready for another day of soaking up the sunshine...

Yes yes! Let's see pictures! What's the name of the place again? I wanted to look it up on RCI -

I think maybe I'll go fix myself a rum and coke, so I can be with you in spirit. I'll stuff $8 in a jar to make it authentic, sit and do my suduko puzzle, put my feet up and pretend to watch the waves for a while.
