Sorry for no posts lately!!

It's been a busy past 2 weeks here in my household, with family from out of state (they're from TX) and son starting back to school this week, plus my working in between the mini-vacations days that I took off from work.
My husband's brother Les and his wife Nancy were down here in FL, since she had to give a talk at a conference.  We hadn't seen his brother  Les in over 2 decades, and had never met Nancy---who's from China. Hubby, son, and I went over to WDW, and stayed at our home resort---Saratoga Springs and Spa, a DVC resort. Our 1st day over there, we ended up going to Sea World for the 1st time in about 4 years---since we started focusing on going to WDW more with FL resident annual passes. Of course, we ended up over at Sea World on a very rainy day that afternoon, and missed getting to see the sea lion show-due to inclement weather. DS11 had planned to go on the roller coasters at S.W. with his uncle since Mommy can't ride the coasters anymore with him (due to the neck surgery last December)----otherwise, I would be riding them with him!!! No luck with the roller coasters for Steven and his Uncle Les---weather issues, of course!!
We did alot of walking around the park and went to look at the sharks, polar bears, penguins & puffins (my favorites!!!!), the beluga whales, and stingrays, to name a few! We stayed long enough to catch Shamu Rocks, a really energetic show featuring the killer whales! I definitely enjoyed it!!   I do believe that Steve and Steven and I will be back over at Sea World and Busch Gardens more (and of course the WDW parks), since we have passes to the above mentioned places now!

I will post more about the mini-vacation in the next few days!!! I definitely need to blog more, and will be doing so regarding Bzz Agent's allowing me to try the new L'oreal Collagen Micro-Pulse!!!
