41: Reece, Autumn and Landon missed the Stampede this year due to the trip, so they were excited to play some of the games at Sea World. Reece won Landon a little toy, Autumn won a few stuffies, and Reece? Well.... he won a huge Wario guy. He was so proud of himself. It couldn't come home because of it's size, but he sure had fun with it while he had it.
42: Reece and Wario. They were best buddies for the week they were together. Wario rode in Landon's stroller and Reece just loved him. He is still in Florida... somewhere! | Autumn won a cute flamingo stuffy to go with her huge collection of stuffies. We had lots of fun at Sea World!

52: 2011 | Gatorland
53: An alligator and crocodile filled zoo. What a treat it was to spend a day with these reptiles. It was quite the adventure. | The entrance way into Gatorland, Florida. Autumn and Reece got eaten by the entrance way crocodile. Landon couldn't believe his eyes and pointed at every single reptile.
54: The sights of Gatorland. More gators and crocs than one could ever imagine. Reece and Autumn enjoyed feeding the gators chicken parts. Yuck.
56: Reece and Autumn so badly wanted to have their picture taken with the alligator and snake. Just when the lady was about to take the picture, Landon ran up and wanted in the photo as well! Great memories from Gatorland, Florida!
60: At the petting zoo in Gatorland. The kids had so much fun and Reece and Autumn were so patient with little Landon, helping him work up the courage to pet the goats.

69: Seuss Landing! What a fun place to visit. This land was like walking right into a Dr. Seuss book with toys and stores, items galore all cheerful and playful like in any Dr. Seuss fun-filled storybook. Autumn and Landon had fun playing while Mike and Reece took in some big, scary rides!
70: When we entered the theme park, we were greeting with world famous restaurants and interesting rides. We had fun while we waited to enter the land of Harry Potter.
75: Autumn and Landon had a lot of fun looking at the magical land, waiting in the train station for Mike and Reece to go on the Duelling Dragon roller coaster (which was very exciting but scary all at the same time). It was extremely hot out this day, but we made do and had a great time! Harry Potter world is amazing. It looks just like the movies and the books make it seem!
83: We had a delicious dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe after a long day playing at Pleasure Island, part of Universal Studious, Orlando. This was one of our best meals!

98: And the Adventure has come to a close! We had the kids all played out and exhausted. We were waiting to board the airplane and all three kids were fast asleep wherever they could find comfort. A wonderful time was had by all!
