Weekend: Charity Gala & Staycation

Hoping everyone had a great weekend as I did :-)
K and I enjoyed a quick staycation at a local Orlando resort in "tourist town" since we had to be out that way for a work charity event benefiting families dealing with pediatric cancer. It's an event that we've attended for the past three years and one I love since it's for a great cause.

We checked into the hotel on Saturday and explored the resort and pool before heading up to relax a bit before getting dressed for the event.

The night's entertainment consisted of live music, amazing food, good wine, poker, black jack and other table games (using funny money). They also had live auctions for some amazing prizes and later in the night we heard speeches from the families that benefited from the foundation. Overall it was a fantastic and fun night and luckily we only had to take a quick elevator ride to crash into bed!


On Sunday morning we had a complimentary breakfast at the resort with the charity group and then later checked out of the hotel to head home.

Since we were already out on International Drive, we stopped off to check out the new Orlando Eye observation wheel which stands 400 feet tall but we didn't actually go on the ride.
