Friends Don't Let Friends Stay In Hotels!
|The Wadding Family|
We thought we
were looking for the impossible. To celebrate our 30th
wedding anniversary, we wanted to get our 3 children and their families
to spend a week together in a large
home or lodge. They are spread
around the country so many years go by
without all of us getting
Enter Florida Leisure Vacation Homes. They provided us with a 6+ bedroom, 4 ˝ bathroom house with a pool, spa, game room, laundry, and plenty of common space for sharing the good times. To top it all off, the price was very reasonable and the unit was in excellent condition. Their staff helped us arrive informed and ready to relax - - there were no surprises!
The week started out with plenty of excitement as our 3 kids, their spouses, and our 8 grandkids got reacquainted and the smiles and laughs broke out. It was fun being able to have the entire group eating, watching TV, hanging around the pool, or just visiting. In a hotel, we would have been scattered around in 5 or 6 rooms.
We started visiting nearby Florida vacation attractions on the second day. The location made finding our destinations easy and we could be back at the vacation home in time to swim or play games before dinner.
grandchildren were having so much fun! With so many people in one
house we were concerned that
everyone would get stressed out. The
opposite happened - - everyone had more
fun and was relaxed because
there were so many activities in the
house. In fact, our
daughter-in-law was pregnant and her new baby could obviously sense how
much fun it was on the “outside”.
So on the third day of our vacation
our 9th grandchild decided it was time
to arrive! Instead of going to
Universal Studios Florida, our son and
his wife headed to the hospital.
We took everyone else to Universal - -
every time we emerged from a ride
or attraction, we hurriedly dialed the
cell phone to find out if the
baby had arrived. At 4pm, grandson
Slade popped out and screamed,
He came straight to the vacation house when he was discharged from the hospital (going home could wait until the end of the week………). When he turned three days old, he rode with us to Silver Springs and spent the day vacationing with his entire family. This only could have happened in a Florida Leisure Vacation Home…………………..it was a wonderful week!
