(Auburndale, FL) Hi 92 Lo 80 -- We were looking forward to our older son Frank and the family Angie, Kyle and Kendall arrival on Saturday, . We all went to Clearwater Beach on Sunday. I learned real quick with a new knee, the sand isn't easy to walk on. It throws the leg sideways, beware if anyone has a knee replacement and wants to go to a sandy beach I don't advise it. We had rain coming back home but no one got burnt and we had a great time in the gulf with very little waves. (Click on the pictures to enlarge.)
Monday, Jim and the family went to Universal Studios in Orlando. I stayed home because of my knee. They had a great time and had a long day in the sun waiting on rides. The highlight was The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. A few pictures with the boys having fun.
Long lines from one section to another, at least it's not in the sun.
Harry Potter wands.
He looks so real!
Tuesday Frank and the boys went back to Universal while Angie hung out with Jim and me. They stayed till the park closed, which got them home late.
Wednesday the family went to Disney World. They went to a couple parks, but they liked Epcot the best.
Kyle and Kendall
Thursday they went to a Dolphins and Snorkeling tour at St. Petersburg. They had a wonderful time and even saw dolphins playing behind the boat.

They came back early enough for dinner. I have small pans so all meals we fixed were in two dishes. I made a chicken casserole, which was eaten in no time. I guess they liked it.
We had time before bed to play several games of UNO. Great family time.
They left this morning. It was a wonderful time and we'll see them again next May for Kyle's graduation.
We wanted to take the boys to see the movie Finding Dory, but Kyle had already seen it and Kendall wanted to see it back home with his girlfriend, so we went to see it this afternoon
It's a great movie, and very entertaining for both kids and parents (and grand parents). We give it a big thumbs up.
See you next week.
