The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?

A wonderful mini-vacation adventure!!!

We had a wonderful family get-away weekend this weekend. We left Thursday (after work) for Orlando, arriving in the wee hours Friday morning. After a brief rest (the kids slept on the way), we were up relatively early Friday morning for nourishment and to hit the parks. We had a 1-day hopper pass for Universal and Islands of Adventure. What a treat! We went to Universal Studios first, hitting Twister right off the bat, and the kids actually loved it! Of course, me being Dew, I took plenty of pics of that ride... (I can never get enough of that ride... for obvious reasons.) So, we hit the Mummy ride, which the girls sat out of, but my wonderful groom's son was a trooper, and he seemed to enjoy it. I love that ride. We rode the Jaws ride...... and then we hit "Disaster"... where my wonderful groom's son was cast as the super awesome boy actor who does his own stunts. After shooting the scenes where he leapt off (tall? cough cough) buildings in a single bound... he was shown in the finished product knocking over "The Rock". lol. After a minor earthquake while riding the subway, we were on our way. We watched a wild Fear Factor Live episode where a woman was called from the audience to have... scorpions put on her head... uh... no thanks.No, to all choices, thanks.We rode a few more things there and headed over to Islands of Adventure. The favorites there were the rock wall (not the same Rock that my wonderful groom's son knocked over), Jurassic Park and the full sized Jurassic playground, complete with cave, fog and dinosaur sounds. The kids were particularly fascinated with the end of the Jurassic Park ride...... I can't understand why. lol....

I was fascinated by the intriguing sky...The above clouds actually produced a spectacular nighttime light show, which did not ever interfere with ride operation, though in my opinion, it should have... a little too close for comfort.... but then, we got this awesome double rainbow after seeing the Blue Man group on Saturday... no pics, but I highly recommend the show! We all laughed non-stop! After my wonderful groom was able to relieve himself from carrying the weight of the world on his shoulder... (and a water bottle)... another particular point of interest for us was the Hard Rock Cafe's version of Thriller... it was a riot!!!It was a superly awesome, wonderfully fantastic superb trip. We had a great time!

Oh wait, I almost forgot to mention the new island at Island of Adventure... Cool, huh?

Have a beautiful day!
