We didn't have a date day the first week of April. Bryan didn't feel good. We were suppose to go to SeaWorld. I am kind of glad that we didn't though. It was still spring break and if SeaWorld was anything like Citywalk then it would have been too busy for us. That's one of the negatives about living in a vacation destination; our population explodes. Crowds and traffic becomes unbearable.
The second Tuesday of the month we went to Epcot to finish up the Flower & Garden Festival. We had missed a few of the topiaries and I wanted to see them and get pictures. When we got there the first thing we did was get our second passholder magnet. This one is Minnie. I love the magnets! They are my favorite souvenir.
We went around and took pictures of the topiaries and of course did the photo pass pictures.
We had fastpasses for character meet. That was so much fun. We met Mickey, Goofy, and Minnie. Mickey loved my shirt! He pointed to it and did his silent giggle. I loved it!
We also had pictures with Baymax, Joy, and Sadness. The lines were short.
We rode Mission Space twice. We decided to try the less intense side which is green. We always ride orange which is the intense side. We enjoyed the green side and seeing the sights around earth but orange is still my favorite. We also rode Frozen and I was hoping to get a ride picture but it never showed up on my app. Oh well. Before leaving the park we jumped on Spaceship Earth. We decided to not eat in the park after trying to get mexican food at the quick service. We waited forever for a table and one never came available. So we left and went to Uncle Julio's on I-Drive. The food there was exceptional! Bryan and I both got the shrimp tacos and they were fabulous! That will definitely be our Mexican go to.
I also loved that it was directly in front of the Orlando Eye. It was fun to see it up close. Bryan says that he isn't going to ride it but I'll try to talk him into it.
I paid off my iPhone 6s this month and instead of running out and buying the iPhone X I got an apple watch. I have been wanting one for a while and I figure since they are on the 3rd series all of the bugs have been worked out. I refuse to buy the iPhone X right now and will wait for the next model to come out. I no longer buy the first round of a big change. Bryan says I only wanted an apple watch for the Minnie face.....maybe that's a little true.... ;o)
The third Tuesday we went to SeaWorld. Bryan was not feeling well and was dealing with some nausea but he went anyway. We mainly just walked around and spent a lot of time at Dolphin Cove and Dolphin Nursery. It was really fun to see them interact and play.
I ended up riding Mako which is the tallest coaster in Florida. It's a hyper coaster. Bryan wouldn't ride it and I wanted to at least try it. It was a little scary mainly because I didn't feel very secure. The upper body was very free and I felt like I spent more time out of my seat than in it. I am sorry but that's a little unsettling when you are 200 feet up. I don't know if I'd try a giga coaster.
The park closed at 6 and Bryan still wasn't feeling good so we just went home. He ended up going to bed so I just ate leftovers.
The last Tuesday of the month we went to the Altamonte Mall in Altamonte Springs. It was a nice mall. I went to the Loft and got a dress and a blouse. Then because of a discount charity card that I bought I had them order an online exclusive dress for me so I could get the discount. I really need to stop buying dresses. I mainly buy them for our cruises but I need to start wearing them for other occasions. We also ordered Bryan an Apple watch since he liked mine so much. He's very excited! After hanging out at the mall for awhile we headed back towards home and had dinner at PF Changs. As always it was very good.
This month I have had a little extra stress. We owed the government quite a bit of money this year and it depleted our savings account. So no more savings. We really want to buy a house but we can't seem to save money thanks to taxes. We are working very hard now to become debt free and since the first of the year we have paid off 3 credit cards and 2 medical bills. We have so much more to pay off but every month brings us a little closer to our goal.
Well that's it for April. Let's see what May brings!
