Disney - Where Dreams Come True

Rick and I had the opportunity to visit Mickey and Minnie a few days before his annual sprinkler show. We purchased a day hopper pass, and did we make great use of it. We experienced three parks on Saturday with a million other people. On Main Street in the Magic Kingdom I did experience that magical feeling of one of the "happiest places on the Earth."  Sunday we did Universal Studios which was another fun day. As I write this post I am waiting at the Orlando airport to take me to another magical experience - the birth of my first son's child.

Galveston, Oh! Galveston

The Friday of Labor Day weekend Rickie came home and asked if I wanted to go on a road trip for the weekend. Duh! In fifteen minutes our bags were packed, my brother was called for "Premium Dog Care" for Abby, and off we were to Galveston. I had never been other than to get on a cruise ship several years ago. We made it to our destination by 10:30 PM.  The next morning we started our touring of the city. We toured Bishop mansion, Moody mansion, an offshore drilling rig, and Alyssa. We drove the sea wall, ate at Fish Tales, stopped at Buc-ees, and watched a movie about the hurricane of 1900. We ended the day with the dog races. The next morning we headed home. We vacationed in Rickie's style - a 48-hour fun-filled road trip.
