the final vacation post! universal studios



We started our morning (Monday) visiting with Pluto and Mary Poppins.
Pluto was a sweetie!
The girls with Goofy.

We left the village and headed to Universal Studios!

Our first ride was the Dr. Seuss ride.

Izzy really did like this ride! After the first spin she was really holding on though.

We stopped in the I Love Lucy shop

Not long after we came out we saw the actress playing Lucille Ball.
She was so sweet. The girls were up on the sidewalk taking her picture and she stepped down into the 'street' and knelt down to visit with Isabelle and told her how beautiful she is. Very sweet. I didn't spend a lot of time visiting the characters, but found her attention to Izzy to be very endearing and genuine.


Another ride that we all loved including Izzy was the E.T. ride!

Here's Izzy on the E.T. ride!


Well, that almost concludes our trip.... We spent our last evening at the Villa, had dinner and packed. It was a wonderful wonderful week! Thanks for sharing it with us.

I've loved seeing your pics Annie! Looks like all of you had such fun, I'm so glad you got to go. And that was so sweet of "Lucy"
Kindness and attention to your children certainly does warm a mama's heart.

All the pictures were great to look at, Annie. Looked like so much fun!

My daughter absolutely loves I Love Lucy. We had no idea there is a Lucy store. She'd be in heaven!

The pictures of Izzy with "Lucy" gave me tears in my eyes...just the day before yesterday, while trying to organize thousands of pictures (a week-long project), I found pictures of my daughter with Lucy from Universal Studios in Florida! I'm always amazed at how much she really looks like Lucy...and how wonderful that the woman portraying her the day that you went was such a kind, caring soul to Izzy.

Looks like it was a great time for all...welcome to my neck of the woods (sort of)...I am in Ft. Lauderdale...about 3 hours from Universal Studios.

ET is great, but Suess Landing is the BEST!

Glad you guys were able to get away and enjoy yourselves...
