More Universal!

More from Universal Studios!
We actually were not at Universal Orlando very long
(2 nights at the hotel -
then we moved to Disney).
We loved Universal -- though we felt a little out of the loop
since we hadn't been there before.
But, we stayed at a super hotel
 recommended by my sister.  We were going to meet her there
when the trip was originally booked for last New Year's. 
But then I broke my foot (remember all the whining -- boo hoo!) --
so we had to reschedule.
  Unfortunately, my sissy and her daughter could not make it over the Easter holiday. 
We missed them so much!! 
But LOVED the hotel she recommended. 
 It was the Loews Royal Pacific -- super nice and so close with a great little walkway over to Universal and Islands of Adventure!
Some of our fave rides at Universal/Islands of Adventure were
Despicable Me - Minion Mayhem (hilarious), Shrek the Crazy,
Twister (that one scared Maddy)
and some of the silly Dr. Seuss rides!
Super fun looking roller coasters - not brave enough to ride though!
Jurassic Park --
who knew it would be coming out in 3D this week?
That movie scared me when it originally was released!
3D??  No thank you!
A funner version of my big red jeep!

Sweet bicycle!!
The Dr. Seuss area playground -- so fun --
do you see who's photobombing this one?
I don't know if Miss Maddy will ever be in a
big city with a subway system,
so Mr. Tennis and she took the subway there!
Coming up soon -- pool fun!
