My mother was here all week and boy were we busy! In addition to two comprehensive theme park tours that included nearly every ride and no lines at all (YAY), Mom also finally 'met' Alice from Alice in Wonderland, which made her day. The rest of us, of course, realize that Alice is actually a young woman wearing a blonde wig and a blue dress, but don't tell her that... Mom and I also did some damage at the outlet mall here in Orlando, the highlight of the trip being Mom's trendy designer dress that cost less than most pairs of shoes. It's super cute, too. The week ended on a high note; the three of us saw Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland in IMAX 3D before dropping Mom at the airport. Sadly, the weather was less than cooperative-- but still better than anything you could hope for in Ohio. It's been cold and windy all week, creating bad hair days and cold hands. It's a good thing fun times and merriment trump blustery days.
