While down in Florida, we passed the time one afternoon by visiting the Treasure Island Fun Center in Seminole with Trey’s cousin Attie. Trey was attracted to some of the old school games – a Star Wars flight simulator and the old SEGA X-men game from the early nineties. Attie was more interested in running around and climbing on the flashing/beeping machines.
On our vacation last month we surprised Trey with a visit to Legoland Florida on Thanksgiving Day. We had a coupon that would get Trey free with the purchase of an adult ticket and we figured the holiday would be less crowded. Not only was the park not very busy, but we had the good fortune of being given another free adult pass by a stranger. So all in all, we paid about $100 for parking and the three of us to enjoy the park.
I’ve got a zillion photos of the park itself but I figured I’d focus on ones of us enjoying the park. We hit all the big rollercoasters and most of the smaller rides and activity centers. Trey’s favorite was the laser tag style game/ride in the “Kingdoms” part of the park. It was very similar to the one found at the Legoland Discovery Center in Atlanta.
Our favorite section of the park was Miniland – specifically the Star Wars Miniland. You can see my many photos of Star Wars Miniland on Flickr.
This year marked our third visit to Amelia Island, thanks again to the generosity of some friends with a beach house in Fernandina Beach.
We spent four days on the island and were unfortunately hit by a stomach bug that knock us out for about two of those days. We still managed to get some time in on the beach. Being winter, we avoided swimming and spent most of our beach time building sand castles and playing games. Trey became quite infatuated with racing Heidi across the sand.
The leaves are all down now, but a few weeks ago when it wasn’t too chilly and the woods were still vibrant we took a little afternoon excursion up to High Falls State Park. We hiked the 2.5 mile “Tranquil Trail” and then walked down to the lower falls. With winter approaching, it got dark faster than expected and we had to leave by six.
