Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Saturday Snapshot

 Saturday Snapshot (originally hosted by At Home with Books) is now hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads. To participate in this meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.
Two years ago (October, 2011) our family took an amazing trip that my hubby won to Universal Resort in Orlando. Yes, people really do win these things! I wrote a post about it and included some photos in a previous Saturday Snapshot. I hope you don't mind if I share a few more of my favorites here today. These are mostly touristy spots along the City Walk.

Main entrance to the park
Hard Rock Cafe

NBA City Restaurant
Our favorite place to eat - Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville! (Yep, that place - "stepped on a pop top, blew out a flip flop...")
One of Jimmy Buffett's actual planes parked (permanently) by the restaurant
Of course we had to be dorky tourists posing by the Universal trademark

My favorite place with my favorite guys, the beach at our humungous pool at the Hard Rock Hotel


  1. How fun! I don't think I've ever been to a pool with a beach.

  2. Me either and I couldn't imagine what it would be like but it was amazing! I wish I could live at that pool! :D

  3. Right! If we ever get to Florida with the kids we are definitely staying at that resort with that beach pool :-)

    1. It was wonderful!! There are three hotels there and this was the one I was hoping we would get. Just the hotel was an adventure!

  4. You will never forget a trip like that!

    1. I revisit the photos and my memories often! We don't really take vacations and never could have afforded this trip on our own. It was amazing and I'm so thankful we got to do it!

  5. How fabulous that you won! And what an awesome experience. Thanks for sharing....and for visiting my blog.

    I hope to visit Universal someday, too; I've been to the one in LA...not in Orlando.

  6. Fabulous photos, Wrighty! It looks like you had a wonderful trip.

  7. What a great win. Looks like a great time.

    GREAT photos.

    THANKS for sharing.

  9. It looks like you had a great time!

  10. Looks like you had a great time! I don't remember all of these spots but we haven't been there for a number of years now and we spend most of our time on the rides. :-)


Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. I hope you keep coming back!
