2003---Orlando, Feb., with Dad and Angie

This was our first trip to Orlando using Dad’s timeshare at Orange Lake Resort for the 5th week of the year. Angie happened to be on winter break from UMKC, so she was able to go with us.

We spent a few days of our week at Disney. We made it back to Epcot---Dad’s favorite. Here they are waiting to go into the America’s theatre.

We also finally made it to Animal Kingdom. Here we were waiting for the show, “it’s a bug’s life”.

AFter spending another day at Epcot, we decided to check out a couple of the other Disney parks.   First we headed to the Magic Kingdom.

2 other days we managed to drive to Cape Canaveral to check out NASA.

It happened to be right after the shuttle Columbia disaster and there was a memorial set up for it.

Then we went to Cocoa Beach while we were out by NASA.

Another day we took off towards the Gulf coast to Florida National gardens. It had sculptures and various palms.

Surprisingly it didn't seem to have many visitors.  But we enjoyed it.

Back in the condo, we had our nightly cribbage games. That was one of the traditions with Dad---nightly cribbage with snacks.
