We got to Orlando on Friday evening in a complete deluge. I mean, it was raining. But the weather the rest of the week was absolutely perfect. We're talking 80s and no rain. It really couldn't have been better. One of the hottest days (upper 80's) was at Disney but it was mostly cloudy the whole day (with just a tiny sprinkle at one point) so it was totally bearable. We rented a house for the week at a pretty low cost once we split it three ways and it was just perfect. Besides the late 80's decor, we wouldn't have changed a thing. There were 5 bedrooms and three bathrooms so each family had their own space and their own bathroom. A big dining room/formal living room and a separate eat in kitchen, family room plus the big patio and pool! Plenty of space for the 6 adults and 6 kiddos.
The "Kid's table" in the kitchen:
Jon found this guy in the road so he spent the next couple days in our backyard and swam in the pool with the boys (you know Kietlyn wouldn't step foot in the pool while he was in there!! And I don't blame her. My sister and I hated the comedy/drama masks tiled at the bottom of my grandma's pool in Florida and wouldn't swim over them. There's no way we would have swam with a weird looking turtle!) And if you're worried about the turtle being in the chlorine, me and Judie were too. But Jon assured us it was fine. If you find a dead bottlenose turtle in Davenport, FL, you can blame Jon and call the animal rights group on him.
They had come in from the pool and Bennett followed Caleb in his room when he went to get dressed and they came out like this. Caleb said, "he didn't have any clothes so I gave him some of mine!" They said they were "twins" and were so proud. Bennett even straightened his hair down to "match Caleb".
