Top 3 Treats in Honey Dukes

I can not even begin to think about getting back in the swing of the school year routine next week.  This year's Back to School Blues are intensified by our wishes to head back to Florida ASAP to relive all the amazing memories our family made at last week's Family Forward Retreat, hosted by Mom It Forward, at Universal Orlando.  There is so much fun to share about this adventure, the VIP treatment was especially unbelievable for our family.  I thought I'd break it down "List Lady Style" in the next several days to fill you in on why Universal Studio should be on your "While They Are Still Young" list!

The conference kicked off with a magical night in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure.  The park was closed to the public, so our small group had full access to all the mystery, and delicious tastes, of Hogsmeade without the wait.  


We laughed through Zonkos joke shop, toured the castle, climbed the moving staircase, visited with the Hogwarts Express conductor, ate at Three Broomsticks, toasted with Butterbeer, sipped Pumpkin Juice, rode a Hippogriff, and watched as Gavin was chosen to receive his own special wand in Ollivanders!


Top 3 Treats from HoneyDukes:

(according to our oldest 3 children)

1. Frozen Butterbeer (Cheers!)

 Daddy Note: Slamming 2 of these frosty treats before riding the Forbidden Journey should be forbidden


2. Chocolate Frogs (We like our chocolate treats to appear larger than our heads)


3. Bertie Bott's Every Flavored Beans
(So thankful I wasn't on the taste testing committee with the creators of these little sweets)
Gibson Note: Eat dirt first, then add grass, finish with a watermelon to grow the best flavor.
