We Loved Wizard World!

We did it!  We visited Universal Orlando’s two wonderful theme parks which included The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.   We toured the parks for two and a half days over Thanksgiving weekend 2010, and had a fantastic time.  I have to admit that my wonderful travel companions (my three kids) made the trip a joy forever.

We learned a lot during our visit, and I have written up an article full of tips to help other families enjoy their trips there as well.  Please check out my full article about Universal Orlando Tips and Advice – A few tips to make your visit to Universal Theme Parks and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter More Enjoyable!

Also see the review we wrote for Butter Beer from the Wizarding World.

We hope you enjoy the parks as much as we did!

Audio Books for the Car

When is the last time someone read a story to you?   When planning a long road trip with your kids,  consider that this is one of the best ways to entertain your little travelers on the road.  Kids really love audio books, and these days they are more accessible than ever.

You can check out audio books on CDs at your public library. Plan ahead and get on the waiting list to request favorite books  since these are the most popular at the library.   You can also download many books free from your public library if you have an account with them.

For even more options, you can download tons of  FREE audio books online that are in the public domain from Librivox and then play them on your ipod or from any media player on your computer. You can also  try a free site for kids audiobooks called or some pay sites like Audible or Amazon.

So, the next time you’re hitting the road, grab an audio book!
