For the first time in a couple of years, I took an extended vacation. One thing that Disney is doing this year (not sure if they have done it in the past) is on your birthday they give you free admission to one of the parks. So I went this year and decided to go to Epcot. I also took my mom with me and we surprised her brother in St. Petersburg, as it was the first time she has flown in 30+ years. The vacation was nice. We went to the Harry P Leu Gardens and Downtown Disney on one day. The next we spent the entire day at Epcot. And the last we sent the entire day with her family in St Petersburg. It was very hot, (record heat and no rain of 19 days) in Orlando, but much cooler in St Petersburg. We concluded the vacation by watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico on Mothers day… I think she really enjoyed it.
