My daughter took this photo with her camera phone – underwater. I’ve been asking for two years – Mother’s Day – birthday – Christmas – for a new phone. Enough’s enough, I have one now.

Orlando like any other town prides itself in Christmas decorations and like any tourist area our businesses like to attract visitors with their holiday signs. I offer you a small sampling of holiday signs close to my home. All are on or near touristy “I-Drive” except The Holy Land Experience which is nearer to downtown.
If you’ll notice many of these hotels are named “Rosen” and these are not all that line International (“I”) Drive. Rosen hotels seem to dominate this landscape.
Here are a few just off “I” Drive. The two Marriott’s are across the street from each other. Not much competition there.
If you enjoy driving around to see Christmas lights and decorations like we do here are a few ideas of places of visit in central Florida.
Sunday we took a trip to find the “Great Pumpkin”. We didn’t find him but we did find a great place to take kids to pick out their own Halloween pumpkin. Because Kai is so young this was our first year but I’m sure this will become a family tradition. He could pick any pumpkin he could carry and I expect each year his pumpkin will get bigger.
If your family will be in Orlando this month go have some fun picking out a pumpkin or two. The Pumpkin Patch is located at the Central Parkway Baptist Church on Central Florida Parkway in southwest Orlando, close to I-Drive and SeaWorld. Check out their information page for days and hours of operation. There will also be a fall festival on October 24th from 6-9pm with games, activities and food.
This is one of our favorite places. I love the wave pool and Roa’s Rapids, a lazy river. This isn’t the lazy river you float along in an inner tube. Roa’s Rapids is a little more challenging with waterfalls, geysers and of course rapids. We also like the more gentler lazy river – Loggerhead Lane. There are two wave pools Big Surf Shores and Cutback Cove. We prefer Cutback Cove as it’s a little more adventurous. I just wish they’d let us use boggy boards. Finally, Kai enjoys Kata’s Kookaburra Cove, a play area just for the little ones.
I know, you don’t see photos of Roa’s Rapids. Maybe one day I’ll remember to bring my water camera.
