September Fun and Fall is Here!

The Birthday Boy!
Fun New Ride at Hollywood Studios
The warm temps were still felt in September here in Central Florida! We started the month celebrating Brady's 11th birthday at Hollywood Studios. That was one day were the temps were slightly cooler - we actually wore long sleeve shirts! :) Brady loved planning out the day, ending with a fun meal at Sci-Fi Drive-In theater. The new Slinky Dog Dash roller Coaster is always a big hit. The line for this moves relatively fast - we've never waited more than 90 minutes. September also was also Magical Dining Month in Orlando. We absolutely LOVED it. Several restaurants participate in the $35 per person three course meal, including our two sit down restaurants at Reunion Resort! A portion of each meal benefits the Best Buddies and Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida. My parents came to visit during this time and we were able to eat at Shark's Underwater Grill, located at Sea World. Our meal was delicious and after, we were able to spend some time at the park. We loved the penguin exhibit, but is was mighty chilly in there!
BooBoo loves the penguins!
It's also been a great time to explore more of our neighborhood. We love our home and are very proud of it. Tatum is currently taking a photography course, so living on a golf course/resort has provided her with a lot of beautiful backgrounds!

Fall seems to be the time of food abundance: not only was it Magical Dining Month, but the Food and Wine Festival at EPCOT is underway as well. Not only does EPCOT have an international array of foods and wines, but each evening they have an "Eat to the Beat" concert. So far, we have attended Jim Belushi and the Sacred Hearts and Air Supply. Later this month, we plan on seeing Kenny G and Billy Ocean. Overall, the kids are good sports about it since they have no idea who these people are. Brian and I are officially old! The good news is that we are getting a variety of pictures from places were we really haven't spent a lot of time. 
Beautiful evening in "Italy"

We found Remy!
We have lots of fun to look forward to during October. Reunion Resort has some great events planned, home school is in full swing and we have friends and family coming to visit! We also have some travels coming up as well before the holidays! If you're looking to travel to Central Florida and beyond, please feel free to contact us so we can help you plan! Wishing you all a fun and happy fall!
