Saturday, Grandma has been wanting to take the kids to Universal Studios for a couple of years now. Well, it happened. It certainly is not like I remembered it was. I miss the old rides where everything was not a 3D or 4D simulator.... as those really make me nauseous. I didn't do rides...and Emily was not wanting to do them either. We broke off and did the exploring and a few shows instead while the other 3 did the rides multiple times. Well, Grandma and Aidan did the rides multiple times. Seems the 3D didn't sit well with Greg either. Emily humored me and we got a wand and did some spells in the Harry Potter area, saw the Fishermans warf show and the pet show and a couple of the parades. I much prefer the beach =)
Sunday - It was pick up the house a bit and gather the pre-order cookies for Emily from one of my co-leaders house. Then the grandparents down here in Florida came over for some Brats and burgers on the grill and Aidan's second birthday cake. This time it only took him 2 blows to get those candles out..... It took 5 tries on the first cake closer to his birthday last week!.
After that.... I think everyone was completely pooped and rested for the rest of the day. The guinea pig cage got cleaned and the kittens were sure curious about that indoor fence area where those creatures were running around! The spray bottle may have been used to keep some kitten paws out of there.
