I enjoyed the afternoon, but I don't think Old Town will be on the list for our next visit. For one thing, it appeared to be acceptable to drink alcohol on the street. I was a bit surprised to see people carrying cocktails in plastic cups from shop to shop. It was late morning when we got there, and a few folks seemed to be already drunk. I'm not against drinking, but I do think there's a time and a place, and to me, shopping at 11am on a Saturday is neither. Especially when you've had too many.
Aside from the revelers, we found some fun shops with prices better than the parks or Downtown Disney. Then we found something fun for Walker to do: he rode the Human Slingshot!
|He can't ride alone, so one of the staff members rode with him. He was strapped into this seat thing.....|
|tipped back until they were looking straight up......|
|and released to the sky. Walker screamed like a girl ~|
We had burgers at Checkers after that, and wandered around a bit more before heading out. I kind of like this stockade thing. Might come in handy as the nieces and nephews become teenagers. Too bad it wasn't for sale.
On the way home, we stopped at Walmart, which would have been fine except I fell in the parking lot and tore up my shin. It wouldn't stop bleeding, so I sat in the way-back of the van with my foot up and a napkin pressed against the hole in my leg while Walker and my mom shopped inside. I now have a really nice purple scar as a souvenir.
