Wild vs Blackhawks

Chicago comes to town a couple of towns a year. On rare occasions, it falls on a Saturday night.  So Mathias and i seized the opportunity!  Ericka and Johan will go to a later game.  Since games don't end in a tie one of us was bound to go home happy. Pleased to announced that it was... Mathias.  At least it was a close and exciting game!

October 2017 - Universal Studios

Universal Studios also offered a variety of rides and shows to take in over the course of two days.  Mathias and I rode almost all the coasters, with the exception of the big 'Hulk' one that he was too short to ride. He was very disappointed. That may be the reason to head back some time! 
We took in a very entertaining show featuring animals from various movies. We also saw movie props from famous movies like Jaws, Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, and Men in Black.  

October 2017 - The Wizarding Word of Harry Potter

One of the highlights of the florida trip was visiting Universal Studios and its Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  We visited Hogshead/Hogwarts and Diagon Alley/London and rode the steam train between the two. We also did the fantastic rides at Gringott's and Howarts.  Both of them were really something! I think at the end of the visit everyone wanted to go to wizard school!

October 2017 - the Magic Kingdom!

We spent two days at the Magic Kingdom, which was surprisingly crowded for mid-week visits in October. Don't people work and go to school?! Compared to previous visit where the boys have been cautious about the rides... they are now in full roller coaster mode. We did the Thunder Mountain Railroad, the 7 Dwarfs Mine, and Space Mountain.  Anna and Farmor were more content with the rides shooting up aliens and driving race cars. But a fun time it was!
