NaBloPoMo 23/30: Travel day

We headed to the airport this morning for our annual Thanksgiving trip to Orlando. This is the third year we've done this trip, and I think it's going to be even more fun this year.

Today was mostly a travel day so I don't have much to post about yet. Carter always travels with a little Thomas roll-aboard full of toys, and this morning at the airport he dumped them all out on the floor to play. This got the attention of every other small boy in the area, of course, and when they wandered close he invited them to play with him. It was really cute!

He's always so generous with his toys. It's not something we've impressed upon him; it's just the way he is. He is always happy to share!

The flight went well and we arrived in Orlando around 4:00 pm. We got in the rental car and headed straight to Universal Studios for the evening. Unfortunately I forgot my camera in the car and it was too dark for pictures with my phone, so there are no pictures of the evening.

We had dinner at the Hog's Head in the Harry Potter themed area and rode the small roller coaster there. We first rode it with Carter last year (it was his first ever roller coaster ride), and it goes surprisingly fast. He seemed a little shocked after the ride tonight, but later he said it was his favorite part of the day!

We rode some other rides in the Dr. Seuss themed area and wandered around a bit more. We had intended to stay until closing, but Doug has a cold and was starting to feel tired, and then Carter asked if we could go to the hotel now -- he was getting tired too. We arrived at the hotel around 9:00 and had fun just hanging out in the room. Here is the first thing Carter wanted to do:

Our plan for the morning is to get up and head to the Magic Kingdom. We'll see how it goes! We may end up just relaxing at the hotel instead. I can't wait to check out the pool and the grounds. I'll remember my camera tomorrow too!
