|The Whole Gang!|
We arrived Wednesday night (about an 11 hour drive), Thursday we did an awesome ropes course. On New Years Eve we went to Sea World and then we celebrated in the New Year together after dinner at Chad's parents house. After being awake for 20 hours, we slept about 5 hours to turn around and spend New Years Day at Universal's Islands of Adventures. Of course, the new Harry Potter attraction was a big hit! As the kids say- it was pretty EPIC. Around 5:00pm one of the rides caught on fire and black smoke billowed for about an hour. We were able to reach all of the kids (thank goodness EVERYONE has cell phones these days) and no one was even in the vicinity when the fire broke out. We turned around on Sunday and drove about 10 hours home. Whew. I am tired.....but what a great time with "our kids"!

No one was injured and none of our kids were on the ride.
