Final Days in the USA Spent with Friends and at Walmart

We only have a few days left before we will be leaving Florida.  The boys have been getting the wind generator mount finished, but still have another "days" work on it.  We rented a car on Thursday and drove to Orlando to meet up with our friends that were on vacation at Disney World.  We had a blast and enjoyed spending the evening crashing their vacation!  I had been to Disney World before, but had forgotten how HUGE it is.  It is amazing how much detail Disney puts into every level of their brand.  We swam in 3 different pools all with themes, Finding Nemo, Little Mermaid, and Cars.  It was funny when we were all swimming around and I popped my head up out of the water and made everyone else hold their breath, go under water to listen to the music!  That's right Disney plays music under the water.  There is no music if your head is above the water, but the second you go under......."Sailing, takes me away, to where I've always......"Anyway we had a blast and were very happy to see our friends one last time before we leave.  We also took advantage of having the rental car and stocked up on supplies at Sam's Club and the grocery store.
Preston, being the 13 year old kid that he is, dared our neighbor kids to jump off the end of the dock into the murky water.  He of course couldn't miss the fun and joined in as well.  They all looked like they were having fun, but I would never jump willingly into the marina water.  YUCK!
Green bananas, laundry done, and the boat sitting an inch lower in the water can only mean one thing.  We are getting ready to leave!  I hope we leave as scheduled this week so I don't have to do another grocery stock.  Depending on the weather we will be trying to get off the dock on Tuesday, maybe Wednesday.  Tanya- our apple oatmeal bread will not last us till then and we will want another loaf to snack on as we travel!!!
