Vacation time!!

Tomorrow, E and I leave for 10 days in Florida!! Woot Woot! Keep your fingers and toes crossed that we will be able to get out of Toronto - big snow storm here in Btown and in Hamilton ... apparently, not much snow flying out in the Toronto area. Please, don't let me get stuck at the airport!!
The plan is to fly into Orlando tomorrow, do the Disney park on Thursday and drive back to rented condo on Friday to meet up with the Wirkowski family at the beach Friday afternoon. Kell, Rick and thier kids are vacationing on Marco Island where her parents have rented a condo for a month. E is really looking forward to our trip and to see Mickey Mouse!
Send good vibes to us for a safe trip and that we actually get outta here on time!! :)
Cya when we get back!!

Splish Splasing away!

My friends Kirsten and Rob had a fun bday party for their kids Maddie (8) and Braden (5) yesterday. It was at the Fallsview Waterpark in Niagara Falls. It's on top of the parking garage. Huge water slides, wave pool, medium sized waterslides/structure and toddler/preschooler type waterplay area. Needless to say, it was tonnes of fun, even though I had to wear a bathing suit in public the entire time! Damn those Lindberg thunder thighs.
Kirsten watched E for me a couple of times while I went down the big slides (E was too short and too chicken to go on them!). They watched me come blasting down and E just thought it was hilarious and funny! It was soooo fast and I was sputtering away from the water shooting up my nose and face!
There is this bell that starts ringing and all the kids come running and stand under this HUGE bucket that dumps water onto them. They all run away laughing hysterically. E did it once and didn't like it too much, but loved watching the other kids do it.
It was great fun - E was very tired last night! I'm sure he slept well!
The falls were beautiful too.... we didn't get out (too cold -20c) but drove by. Everything was frozen and looked so cool!
