Jessica's birthday trip

We were going to go to Universal M-W, but the SUV was really acting up so we decided not to go. Then Jessica really wanted to go for her birthday, so bad coil (my guess) and all, we drove to Orlando Sunday, went to Islands of Adventure and Universal the rest of the day, and then all day Monday. The SUV was acting worse (of course it didn't do this for the mechanic!!) and the engine light came on. We'd planned to go again Tuesday and drive home late, but we decided not to go at all but to leave for home in the morning so if we broke down, it wouldn't be after dark.
My surfers hamming it up.

No, he didn't really but those, but he was a good sport and let me take his picture with them.

Signing the waiver for wall climbing. I paid the $5 each because it was good entertainment. Jasmine opted out.

Jessica cooling off.

I wish it wasn't 6 1/2 hours down to Orlando so we could go more often and use our FL annual passes.

And the SUV did need a new coil so there goes $147. It's with the mechanic right now.

We are getting teacher assignments this week, have orientations on Friday, and school starts Monday for all the kids.

Looks like fun! We are hoping to go for our staycation this year. Of course for us it is only a little over an hour.
