Florida and wonderful news

Flew out to Florida with family
Our rented home had Jacuzzi and pool
Tropical sun with high humidity
Swimming and ice drinks to help keep us cool.

Disney parks were awesome and we had fun
From nine in the morning till late at night
With shows and fast rides to suit everyone
The firework shows were an amazing sight.

But things got better with news of great joy
China at Epcot we received a call
My youngest daughter had a baby boy
A Grandad again I felt ten feet tall.

Fantastic time we had with lots of fun
But nothing beats cradling a new grandson.

Thank you Roy. We had a great time and made it better when we got the good news, humidity was high and your clothes feel soggy after a day at the parks. We were lucky to have a pool at the house to cool off. Tom
