Wild about Harry

Hang a left at the castle

We just returned from a great family vacation to Orlando, where four days of theme parks left us sweaty, tired, and happy. First stop on our list was the new Harry Potter attraction at Universal's Islands of Adventure, and it did not disappoint! We have been avid readers of all the books and it was fun to see the town of Hogsmeade and the Hogwarts castle come to life. We sampled a butterbeer, visited Honeydukes candy shop, and were left breathless by the fabulous ride in the Hogwarts castle. We also enjoyed revisiting some old favorites both at Universal and The Magic Kingdom before returning home ready for non-fried food and cooler days indoors.
Now as we race toward July, I'm playing catch-up and trying to remember all the fun projects I wanted to include in my summer calendar. I want to continue making memories and relishing the warm, sunny days before they all slip through my fingers. What is on your "must-do" list for summer?

I'd love to see the Harry Potter attraction one of these days. Sounds like a great family vacation. I'm happy that summer is here but I can't see past Dale's big birthday party just yet. Once that's done I can relax and enjoy the rest of my summer.
