While I sometimes miss the days when the boy was a wee baby, IMHO, every year that he has grown older, being his dad has only become better and more fun. The one thing that I’ll miss when he’s older, though, is holding his hand.
At age seven, the boy already is starting to feel awkward sometimes when we hold hands in public. To him, holding hands with your dad is something that babies do, not something that big boys do. I figure that I might have another year or two of being able to hold my kid’s hand in public, before he starts to decline my hand-holding requests.

I dunno what kinda voodoo spells peeps in Florida cast on the weather here, but their idea of 72 degrees is totes different from what us peeps in the northeast call 72 degrees. If it was 72 degrees in New York right now, peeps would be celebrating the summer solstice in our underwear. Meanwhile, 72 degrees in Florida is cold. I pretty much spent the entire day shivering.

At least the hotel pool is heated, amirite?

We spent the entire day at Islands of Adventure with grandma Melissa, and all we got was this pic from Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls ride. That, and some ride-induced nausea and stuff. It was awight.

Peeps be like, “OMFG, the Harry Potter World at Islands of Adventure is, like, totes amazeballs and stuff!!!!” But we’re all, “Meh.”

The Amusement Park Industrial Complex insists on finding new and innovative ways to extort money, er, enhance park-goers’ experiences. One of these innovations is known as the Fast Pass. I guess we get these for free, thanks to our stay at the hotel. 

To ensure peeps aren’t sharing this innovation with friends and family, you gotta take a pic, which is basically a black and white blob, pretty much at the same caliber of quality as the old GameBoy camera pic. 

The lady in front of us retook her pic no less than a dozen times cuz apparently she thought the black and white blob pic of her face on her Fast Pass wasn’t glamorous enough. Meanwhile, the boy and I were like, It’s a black and white blob pic of your face, so whatevs.
