Orlando Vacation - January 3-6, 2007

The family headed to Orlando for four days at the Universal Studios Resort, the Portofino Bay Hotel for Sara's work conference. Jeff had his work cut out for him watching Helena (walking almost 20 miles over two days) but as the pictures below show, he kept Helena busy seeing the sites around the resort and Universal Studios City Walk.

Daddy, do you mind? I'm trying to take a bath here!

Who do you think you are looking at Little Caesar?!?

New Year's Day, 2007 - Rose Bowl

Helena celebrated the New Year, 2007, by watching the Rose Bowl with her daddy. Despite the outcome, Helena and family were all smiles when these pictures were taken at the beginning of the game!

She's at the 30, the 20, the looks like she is going to make it to the endzone and she is now high-stepping! What a showboat!
