Gatorland

We made it to Florida – Pops, Libby, Robert, Hunter, Westly and I!!

I’m so excited that we are all here!! We’re staying in Lake Buena Vista near Disney Village…er…well, it’s now called Disney Marketplace.

This is my first time visiting Kissimmee on vacation!! I mean I did go to High School here, and my mom still lives here (and I do visit her) but I’ve never come on this type of vacation! We thought it easier, since there’s so many of us, to stay in a hotel right near all the “tourist” (meaning Disney) action.

It’s so great to have the Grandkids here with us and I can’t believe Libby has not been here since Pops and I got married here nearly 18 years ago!!

Our first day, we kept things a bit low-key do to the time change issues after traveling and headed to Gatorland (a 110-acre alligator theme park and wildlife preserve) before heading to my mom’s for a BBQ. Here are some photos from our adventures there:

A beautiful day for ziplining around the park too!

Central Florida weather at its finest – a great way to start our trip.

More fun soon!!

    Looks like fun! I haven’t been to Florida since I was 14, I think. I remember it being a good time. Hope your family has a great trip!
