I’ve been going through some of my pictures from my weeks in Florida and I realized that there are a few I want to share, but they don’t really deserve a blog post of their own. For example there was the view from our balcony at the Orlando Renaissance Hotel. We were so close to Sea World that we not only watched the 4th of July Fireworks in our jammies, we could hear the music and the announcer.
Of course the night before, we watched the 4th Fireworks Spectacular over the Magic Kingdom from the rooftop of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Hotel. That is what we call a perk of having a daughter who works for Disney. There were about 12 of us on the rooftop, no crowds, no screaming kids and a breathtaking view.
There was the picture I took of my husband’s sandwich at a little Cuban restaurant in Winter Park, FL. It was a Cuban hamburger. A hamburger patty topped with ham, bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato and a FRIED EGG! He loved it, but can you imagine if I’d made this for him at home? You think he would have eaten this? Talk about a heart attack in a sandwich!
I also just had to show you a few more pictures that I found in my mother’s things. The first photo is of my mother’s parents. I never knew my grandfather with hair, or my grandmother with dark hair. Isn’t this just the perfect 20’s photo?
I also found this photo of my mother and her older sister. What was so exciting about finding this photo, is that mom’s sister was always a mystery to us. She died when she was 6 as a result of having her tonsils out. The only thing I know is that the hospital gave her too much ether and killed her. My grandparents never mentioned her and my mom was only 4 when she died and had very little memory of her.
I am going to work backwards and link this to Table Top Tuesday with our hostess Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life. I'm also linking to Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
