My grandparents also have a timeshare at the same place that my parents do, and they have the three weeks after us. So they came down on the Saturday before we left. Since our flight was on Monday morning and we had to be out of our condo on Sunday, we stayed with my grandparents Sunday night. My mom and I shared the second bedroom and right before I was about to lay down and get settled in bed, I noticed something on the floor. It was that gecko. And I just stared at it and whispered to my mom, "There's a lizard in here". It ended with me, my mom, and my grandmother trying to catch it with a plastic cup. The little guy ended up getting away through some crack under the bathroom sink, though. I was definitely nervous going to sleep that night. I was afraid he might come back and crawl on me or something!
I know I shared the Minnie ring that I got, but I never shared the other souvenirs I picked up! Since I collect novelty mugs, I'm always on the lookout for some new ones. Even though I go to Florida a lot, I actually didn't have a Florida mug, so I finally got one! I'm a fan of tacky touristy places. I'll admit it!
The other souvenir I got is something called a Hurdy Gurdy. I got it at the gift shop at Bok Tower Gardens. They had different songs, but the one I got plays "You Are My Sunshine". You just turn the little crank on it and it plays the music. It's kind of like a music box, but different. It'll play if you just hold it and crank it, but if you put it on a table and turn it, it plays so much louder. I guess they're supposed to be played on some sort of tuning table, but you can play it on any table. I thought it was so neat!
