We got married in 2005 in Florida so that we could do a combo wedding on the beach and honeymoon at Disney World and SeaWorld. It was a very memorable experience dealing with Hurricane Wilma which prompted us to change our sunset wedding to a noon wedding so we could leave the Gulf coast and move inland to Orlando where the hurricane made landfall the following day, October 24, 2005.

The hurricane brought cooler weather so it was a bit cold swimming with the dolphins at Discovery Cove (across the street from SeaWorld), but overall the trip was great because we could enjoy all the time spent outdoors without overheating. Some of my fondest memories are from that trip.

Acorn Express Tour

We visited Morton Arboretum this past weekend since we’re members. I even caught a pic of a hawk in flight, albeit a crappy one as it took off when I was trying to get it sitting on a post.

The true reason for our trip, in addition to just wanting to see the trees before all the leaves fell off, and the scarecrows they always put up around the lake, is that I wanted to check out their Glass Pumpkin Patch which was really cool. We didn’t purchase any pumpkins but really enjoyed looking at them.
