Moira, Michelle and Kevin flew over from Holland to spend 5 weeks with us here in South Florida. Before they had arrived I had spoken to Michelle by phone and told her that I was going to take her to go indoor skydiving in Orlando. I told her that when she tells her parents about this to leave the word "indoor" out  :o)

10 minutes is all it took before I got a call from Moira asking me what I was planning because her husband had gone ballistic when he heard the news. Poor Michelle, she did as I asked, and her dad flipped. Ha ha ha - sorry, that was mean of me  :o)

Rusty and I, plus Vera and my kids, picked them up on arrival at Fort Lauderdale International airport. The following day we enjoyed some pool time with all the kids and thereafter we were off to Orlando. On arrival we enjoyed a full day at Magical Midway Thrill Park (, which was located directly across the street from our hotel on International Drive. There we enjoyed the squirting bumper boats, go-kart racing on elevated tracks, the Space Blast Tower, bumper cars, the Tornado, and the Sling Shot. Moira and Kevin, and thereafter Michelle and Rebecca took the "Slingshot" ride that hurls you 400+ feet into the air. You have to see the video - too funny. I am super proud of my Rebecca for doing this. What a brave girl she is.

That evening we met up with our cousin Mareen and her husband AJ, and one of Rusty's friends for dinner at a Chili's restaurant (

The following day is what we came for. INDOOR SKYDIVING at iFLY Orlando ( It is bloody expensive to do, but what fun it is. The kids did amazing and loved every second of it. I think that Moira and Rusty really enjoyed it as well. When our time was up and we had to get out of the wind tunnel chamber Chris went up to the instructor and begged him to go one more time  :o)    How awesome is that!

Enjoy the pictures and videos that are attached.

Until next time .... adios!
