in the house

we spent all of our time in florida staying in this really great house. it was a huge house with five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a game room, and even its own pool! the whole place was furnished, which meant that we could save a bunch of money by making our own meals instead of paying disney's ridiculous prices each time we were hungry. david found the house online and it was way better than staying at a hotel. it was only about 10 minutes from disney, so we could stop home during the day and take a nap if we wanted (we never wanted, but mom and david did!).
one thing that i thought was really interesting was that the house was right next to an abandoned amusement park. that place was called 'splendid china', it was a park that was actually run by the chinese government itself! strange... about 6 or 7 years ago it shut down because it couldnt compete with disney and the other parks. now it is just an abandoned walled off park. kind of cool, huh? if you want to learn more about it you can look here. and heres a website that shows what it looks like today.
as for the house? sure, the decor was pretty terrible, but other than that it was great!

You should have taken the time to burn that couch.
