Hey everybody! I arrived in Orlando at about 9:40 this morning, and I can’t believe I am actually here. The flight was awesome, and the weather here today (except for a few small rain showers) was GORGEOUS. I had a really busy day.
First after arriving, we (my mom, dad, brother and I) had to go get my car from the car transport person. Well we started off right from MCO (Orlando’s airport), and it took over an hour and a half to find him. Someone needs to be a SMIDGE more specific when one says the “7-11 on International Drive.” So after going to 2 other 7-11’s trying to find ol’ Blanca, the third time was the charm, and we found Blanca. When we picked the car up I realized not only did I need to fill the tank up (it was ½ full) but, my one rear blinker was dying so we had to go find a store that sold new bulbs. Anyways, I was happy to realize that gas was actually about 20 cents cheaper than at home (Buffalo’s gas prices are ridiculous) so to fill up ½ of my tank for $14 was AWESOME! I could get used to this! We were all starving, so we decided to go find something to eat. We ended up going to McDonald’s.
After that, we went off to look for stores that sold car light bulbs. We 1st checked out Super Target, and they had the automotive section, but no light bulbs. So we headed to Super Wal-Mart. We found the bulb, and then we headed off to find our vacation home my family was renting. It took us FOREVER to find it (they said it was close to Celebration, and it is definitely NOT!) Anyways, we went in the pool for a bit after we actually found the place, and then went grocery shopping, and then out to dinner. After that my dad drove over towards Vista, and we figured out where exactly it was, and then we drove over by Chatham, Patterson, and the Commons, and then around Orlando for a bit. I took some nice pictures. I am going to upload them to a photobucket account and I will attach the link on here so people can view all my photos.
So that’s about it for today. I am exhausted. I had a lot of trouble sleeping last night, with having to say goodbye to my friends, my doggies, and my house.
Tomorrow I have another busy day ahead of me! We are going to one of the Disney parks in the morning, and then meeting up with the girls I hope to live with for some dinner. And then check-in at Vista is Monday!
