Spring Break - Orlando - Wrapping Up

Friday morning we finished packing up and loaded up the car, bidding a fond farewell to Fantasy World Resort by the check out time of 10am. We grabbed some breakfast and made our way over to Downtown Disney to do a little more pin trading. For those not familiar with pin trading - if a cast member is wearing a pin that you would like to have they have to trade with you for whatever Disney pin you want to give back to them. And the cast members are issued some special pins that aren't available for sale that have hidden Mickey logos in them. Mommy and Daddy managed to score several of those on trades.

Later in the afternoon we headed back to Sea World. The boys had compiled a list of the things that they wanted to do here: some time in the Shamu's Happy Harbor nets, rides on the Ocean Commotion, Carousel, and Sky Tower, and visits to the sharks, penguins and flamingos. We managed to do them all as well as take in one of the shows - Clyde and Seamore Take Pirate Island. Wesley loved this show because the walrus makes a cameo at the end and he loves the walrus almost as much as he loves Shamu.

We left the park in the late afternoon and had one final stop to make before heading home - dinner in Clermont at Friendly's, which of course included their famous ice cream! We made it home late that evening and started the rather unpleasant process of unloading the car, unpacking and washing the dirty laundry! The next day Parker had another of his tee-ball games and we rounded out the end of our vacation by relaxing at home together.
