Touring OIA With My 3 Oldest Grandchildren

School starts back in a couple of weeks and Cindy and I will be heading back to Wolf’s Haven in three weeks for a couple of months, so I wanted to take the opportunity in the next two weeks to spend some extra time with my three oldest grandchildren before we all go our separate ways.

It’s just too damn hot and humid in Orlando to do much outdoors without melting into a puddle of sweat within the first 15 minutes. I mean, Abby and I took Bella for a walk of less than a mile this morning at 9 am and were drenched halfway through.

So I was casting about in my mind for things we could do indoors that would be active and not be something they had done before when it hit me that a tour of OIA would be fun, active and interesting.

Here are some photos I took today while touring OIA with my 3 oldest grandchildren.

More Disney. I had to explain to them that Disney, Universal and Sea World all had stores at the airport for tourists who forgot to buy a relative or friend a souvenir when they were at the parks.

In front of the fountain by the Hyatt hotel. Mikey said he’d love to live at the Hyatt and come down to the terminal each day for breakfast, lunch and dinner and to buy electronic gear at the shops, lol.

In front of the Shrek wall design. I teased Mikey that his hair was cleaning Shrek’s right nostril.

Mikey said, “I’m holding Mickey’s ear!” so of course Abby had to hold Mickey’s nose.

We all had a good time touring OIA and the grandkids found out there was a lot more to the airport than planes.

After leaving Orlando International Airport we stopped at CiCi’s Pizza for, what else, PIZZA!!

    Wow, I’m surprised Mikey smiled for so many pictures! He’s usually done after 2 or 3. Great pics 🙂

    He was great! He even reached over and put his arm around Heather’s shoulder in that Shrek photo without any prompting.
