So this summer I was lucky enough to be able to take a trip to Orlando for a special long course swim meet with our Special Olympics athletes. The athletes had extra practices in a long course pool (50 meters instead of the standard 25 yards). We fundraised for this trip....so THANK YOU to everyone who made this happen!!
The trip itself was a crazy wild ride. We left on Friday morning early, and drove all day (making a pit stop and lunch stop along the way). We made it to Orlando and got settled into our rooms. We ate dinner as a group (ordered in pizza), and headed to bed. On Saturday we got up and got ready for the swim meet, we walked to the pool (it was literally steps away from the hotel), and had an AMAZING swim meet. After the meet (it was short) we ate lunch, and headed back to the rooms for some quite time. We met up for dinner at Universal. Sunday we packed up all of our stuff and loaded everything on the bus and headed to Disney World. We spent the day in Disney, then headed to Downtown Disney for dinner and more fun. Got back on the bus at 10 pm and headed back to Raleigh. We got back to Raleigh at 8 am on Monday! WHEW!! It was a fast paced trip...but so much fun!! I hope we get to do it again!! The adventures we have are the Best!!
