Believe it or not, yesterday Lukas saw his second shuttle launch here in Cocoa Beach. I'm not sure that he fully understands the magnitude of people being hurled into space in a rocket-propelled capsul. Maybe in a couple years.
But traveling and staying with family has inspired us to get him into his own little bed (or self-made matress on the carpet), which is a huge step for us. He definitely seems ready for it, though!
To quickly round up our trip to-date, we've spent some time on Park Avenue, gone boating and tubing (yes, Lukas TOO!) while visiting rural North Florida, spent lots of time with family, watched a shuttle launch from the beach, and lastly, we've done a bit of shopping.
What we still hope to do includes: a walk around Lake Eola, a visit to Sea World, a quick trip to the Orlando Science Center, and a visit to a "splash park" near Park Avenue (a fun spot for kids to play and dash through the water). All of that in less than a week. Wish us luck!
