Friday, we met up again at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure! Everyone came! Mom, Ashlee, Jon, Gavin, Stephanie and her friend Brittney, Michael, Audrey, Johnathan, me and Sean! We were just missing Chloe, Eli, and Kaleb. It took us a while to get out there, but we met up with all of my family (who had been there since 8 a.m.) and started out our day with The Hulk! It was such a great start to the adventure. We were then able to get completely soaked on Popeye & Bluto's Bilge Rat Barges.
After we left the cartoon world, we went to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Sean and I have a great love for Harry Potter because we have been reading the books! I just finished the first one and I am listening to the second one on my way to and from work. Sean has finished all of them. He actually listened to them while he worked as well! Anyway, so all of the stuff there had more meaning. We would have bought some "Chocolate Frogs" if they weren't $10.50 for a small box. Anyway, we went on the main ride--which is awesome every time you ride it. You get to walk through Hogwartz while you wait in line. We loved it!
After we got out of Harry's World, it began to POUR!!! We were getting soaked, but it was okay because we were all still wet from the rapids. The downfall--there was lightning so all the rides were shut down--at least all the indoor rides. So we decided to make our way to Spiderman. I think Spiderman is the BEST 3D ride there! It's fast, exciting, and IN YOUR FACE! On our way to Spiderman, my nephew Gavin, age 3, did the cutest thing EVER! He saw the Sneetch Landing train going in Dr. Suess world as he was on my shoulders, he grabbed my face, pointed it at the train and said
Gavin: (gasp) The train! Wook, Meagan, the train! (he looked down at me) It works?" (because we had told him we couldn't ride it because of the lightning).
Me: Yeah, it works.
Gavin: Mommy! It works it works!!!
The rain stopped lightly, so we tried to go back to Harry Potter to ride the Dueling Dragons, but right when we got there it closed again and the rain really came down. It didn't stop this time, so we decided to leave. It was a long day. We went home and made a delicious spaghetti dinner and just hung out the rest of the night.
