On Monday we went to Island Of Adventure which is part of Universal. My brother is a huge fan of Harry Potter so of course we had to go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It was fantastic! Hogsmeade looked exactly like the movies! We went on all the rides and went in all the little shops. My favorite ride probably had to be the Dragon Challenge roller coaster, but I preferred the red side to the blue. The butterbeer was also delicious. Nick, my brother, got the carbonated soda-like one and I got the frozen one. Personally, I liked the frozen one better! Nick also got Pumpkin Juice which tasted like apple cider, it was pretty yummy! After about an hour or two in Harry Potter World, it started to get pretty crowded, so we ventured out to the rest of the park. I was stunned at all of the architecture within the park. Each section looks completely different which was amazing to me!

Thursday we decided to go back to Island of Adventure. We didn't stay as long as we did on Monday because there were many more people. We rode all of the rides that we really wanted to ride then headed back to the resort around 1:30 and hung out by the pool for the rest of the day!
Friday was our last full day in Florida, sad, I know. We just relaxed by the pool all day because the weather was gorgeous. Later in the night we went out to eat at Bonefish Grill (if I can remember correctly) and the food was delicious! After that we had to participate in a typical Shigo family vacation game of mini golf. We found this pirate mini golf place and played. I lost. Badly. But it was a beautiful night and the sunset was magnificent.

Saturday we were up bright and early to catch our flight to Hartford. We got stuck on the plane with all the screaming little kids, but it wasn't that bad. Now we are all home and settling back into some sort of routine. I am trying to see all my friends from high school before I leave for the summer to work at summer camp.
Overall, my start to summer has been amazing! Also, I have been getting a lot of questions from the Class of 2017 on Facebook. If you are reading this and have any questions that you would like me to address in a blog, tell me! If you have a question about something, chances are another person has the same question! So don't hesitate, I love hearing from you all!!
Love and summuhhh time!
