I spent last week down in Cocoa Beach FL with my family. It was so nice to get away for the week and just unwind. I don't normally wait until July to take my vacation but with all the doctor appointments and weeks I didn't feel good after the chemo I treated us to a nice vacation after my last treatment. We went to Orlando for a day and spent the whole day at Universal. The main attraction for us of course was the Harry Potter worlds there. Let me tell you, it is like stepping foot into that wonderful world! We had the best time. Anna got on the Harry Potter ride at Hogsmeade and we both loved it but it was her first real rollercoaster so she wasn't keen on going on any others like it. We also waited to get into the wand makers shop and picked out or I should say the wand picked Anna out! She absolutely loves her new wand and wants to get a costume for Halloween this year. So I guess I know what to look for her this year!
We also went out to the Kennedy Space Center and walked around. I wanted to go on a then and now tour but they were all sold out. Too bad I will know for next time to order tickets online and book what I want. We still really enjoyed seeing everything. Even got to meet a real astronaut! Anna thought that was the best thing since sliced bread! She was so cute and just in awe the whole time standing by him while we had a photo taken. There is something so magical about seeing everything through your childs eye. I wonder sometimes what goes through her mind and wish I too was at that age again.
During the down times I worked a lot on Day 1 of 12 Days of Santa cross stitch and got a lot accomplished on it. Almost finished, only a few pears, the partiridge and pot then I can backstitch it.
