We should be getting on a flight home tonight but ours was cancelled. We had made plans with friends of Mimi and Dano’s to bring us to the airport. Our plan was to go to dinner in Celebration and then go to the airport for our flight. Well, despite not having a flight we decided to go to Celebration for dinner anyway. We went to the Columbia Restaurant and it was excellent.

Downtown Celebration

After dinner we caught up with my Aunt and Uncle who live in Celebration. We got ice cream from Kilwins. They have fantastic ice cream there. We enjoyed our ice cream and chatted with my relatives. Then we explored downtown celebration.

The Celebration Christmas Tree

there is a christmas tree in downtown Celebration and they make it snow around the tree a few times during the night. They even have ice skating and other activities. there were horse drawn carriages and even a little train that people could ride.

It is snowing in Celebration

We decided that we would drive Dano’s car back to Massachusetts rather than wait for the rescheduled flight on Jan 2nd. So, during the day we got everything packed up and I made reservations for a hotel in North Carolina tomorrow. When we got home from Celebration we started packing up the car.

We woke up this morning to the news that our flight home was cancelled. We were supposed to catch a flight home on Wednesday but Southwest has cancelled 5200 flights in the past few days. I had not been worried about our flight being cancelled because there was no significant weather happening at home. Apparently, that was not the major factor in the cancellations. I was able to rebook us on a flight on January 2nd instead.

After that news I was happy that we had donuts from Donut King to enjoy today. Here are the ones that we selected.

Our Donut King Selection

I had the lemon donut. It was delicious.

We did some more playing and exploring in the Villages today. We went on natuere walkover by Mimi and Dano’s house. Then we played some shuffleboard and we had lunch at the marketplace which is the closest village square near them. Inside there were a few food options and we picked up pizza, some calamari and Andy had a hot dog. The pizza was fantastic and the calamari very tasty.

We enjoyed another family movie night tonight and introduced the kids to Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Eva liked it at first and was even laughing out loud at a few things. Then she found it boring. I can’t blame her on that, there are some parts that drag a bit. Andy enjoyed it as well.

Because we are staying a few extra days I had to make sure that I had enough of my medications so I went to Leesburg to pick up some additional meds to tied me over until we returned. It wasn’t a bad ride but I had to make it twice because it was going to take some time to get the medication order together. In the end I was able to get the essentials needed.
