The first order of business was to get everything ready so I told Dan to take the children downstairs while I got ready. I set up all the colors, I had a wire egg picker for each kid and I had a dozen eggs. I was pretty pleased with myself and felt ready to go. So, I called in the kids to come upstairs.
Immediately, I sat them in their chairs and Jasmine asks: Abuela, don't you have a magic pen? (She meant the wax crayon that comes with the kit). Before I could answer, Dan says: Of Course we do! Honestly, I did not know what I had done with it so Dan starts looking for this crayon thingie. He was bewildered and started asking me questions. I got distracted and Roman took the opportunity to pick up the yellow tub and while trying to drink it (he didn't succeed of course), the color spilled all over him! He turned yellow and looked like he had jondas!
At this point I was not very pleased with my husband and promptly asked him to stop looking for the crayon and told Jasmine I was very sorry but I didn't have the magic pen.
I made more yellow and we had a lot of fun after that.

On Wednesday we left to Daytona. We had a hotel room on the 11th floor overlooking the ocean. It was great. Daytona is a party town where high school and college kids were spending their beach week at. Everyone looked so young that I really felt old.
The big thing we did at Daytona was to visit the track. In the entrance to the Daytona Experience (museaum, entertainment center) they have statues of Dale Earheart Sr. and Bill France with his wife. Bill France was the creator of the Daytona 500.
Below we are in Victory lane. They do not allow you to go to the Grand Stand but the picture was taken next to it.

On Tuesday we went to Epcot Center. It was a lot of fun. We did most of the park although Dan got tired towards the end so we did not stay for the fireworks at the end.
We had lunch in Morocco and enjoyed the belly dancer. We ate couscus (which is the official food of Moraocco, who knew?) with lamb and chicken. It was great food.

We arrived to Orlando at about 2:45PM, Saturday. We checked into the hotel and pretty much crashed.
I had made arrangements with the VO of Services at my job to meet and have dinner together. He and his wife drove from Tampa to meet with us. We went to an early dinner (late lunch) to the Long Horn Steakhouse. We had a lovely meal and it was a lot of fun to get to know Bob and his wife outside of work. The best part of the meal was the fact that Bob treated us. Thank you Bob!
