Flying visit to Orlando

sunny 24 °C

We had a flight booked from Orlando to Arkansas on the 1st of March so we ended up only having half a day in Orlando with the kids...

We could not do any of the theme parks so we opted instead to go to Dysney Town... we walked around and went to all the shops ... kids got a 10USD budget and Hayden bought a lego and Teo a dinosaur and some lego...

We decided to go to the Cirque du Soleil show which was just amazing.... It is a circus from Canada with no animals and I can guarantee you that we spent 1 hour and 45 minutes going ohhh and haa and whistleling like mad as the show was just fantastic... This show was called Nouba...

There were jongleurs, moutain bike, BMX, trampoline, skating, skipping, trapeze, rope walking, flying people... just beautiful costumes, pretty awesome mis en scene... I would strongly recommend it ... And we bought the cheapest tickets (quite far from the stage) ... and we had a better all encompassing view than the best seats...

We took a photo of Teo in a Harley Davidson as you do ... we had no camera so we could not take any other photos...

Just to warn you that there are 2 airports in Orlando and one is about 45 minutes in a cab.. so check before you fly as you could find yourself short of time!!

Eureka Springs

sunny 15 °C

Today we went to Eureka Springs after going to Beaver Dam to visit the town, have a coffee and wonder round the cute city.

The city is old and has a New Orleans feel (not that I have been there but Mark and Karen can tell).... with its wrought iron balconies, its colourful houses and its relaxed atmosphere...

We went to a kite shop, crossing a lovely bridge where I took the shadow of Hayden...

We saw Humpty Dumpty on the wall before he fell off,

We then have a walk round town... and pretty much entered all the shops, there was some good footwear shops with unknown brands like keen, cushe... very nice looking shoes and ever so comfy!

We decided to get a picture of the kids dressed in old fashion clothes...
