In May, we were lucky enough to visit the Archibalds in Tampa before they moved. (They are now living in Spokane, so now we get to visit them there sometime!) It was fun to hang out with the boys. They are hilarious. The weather was warm and beautiful, the beaches were clean with sand like powdered sugar, and "Harry Potter Land" in Orlando was nerdy fun for Brett and me.
Ok, I know that giant turkey legs are readily available at most theme parks, but these were MAGICAL giant turkey legs from Hogsmeade. And the Butterbeer. Oh the Butterbeer. It's like creamy butterscotch soda. Pumpkin juice was ok too, a little strong for my taste.

The kids went for a walk to a little park close by.

We sure miss the Archibalds and hope to visit again sometime soon.
