where we had a great time. The temperatures were nice, around 70oF/22oC.
We have been to the Mardi Gras festivities at Universal Studios, lovely costumes and music.I especialy loved the Shrek 4D movie and the concerts of the Blues Brothers.
Also we have been to Disney's Magic Kingdom, which
was a bit of a disappointment. It was way to busy this Monday, we only visited 3 attractions, waiting times were 60-70 minutes!! We waited until we had seen the parade and went home.

On Thursday we made a trip to Daytona, where the Bikeweek was starting. We visited the biggest Harley Davidson dealer over there, awesome to see a whole department store filled with 1.350 Harley's! My DH loved this bike.

I also drove at the beach in Daytona with our rented Chevrole
t Impala, which was great fun.

We also drove around in Celebration, the town build by Disney and saw our dreamhouse......LOL

And for the rest
we did a lot of shopping in all kind of Superstores (JoAnn's, Walmart, Target etc.)
and visited the Outlet in Orlando where we supported the American econom
y by buying 6 pair of Nikes, 8 pair of jeans (here in Holland 3 x more expensive!) and a lot of summerclothes and of course we needed a new suitcase also! The last night we had dinner in the House of Blues at Downtown Disney, which was real good. Our son, who had never been to the USA before, also enjoyed the trip very much, he is already thinking of emigrating.........The second night he has been DJ in the hotel we stayed and could let hear some of his own made music, people were really enthusiastic!

Now it is back to cold, rainy and misty weather
, piles of work and wintercoats and start saving for our next trip to la Belle South!
