Before New Year's, I had a great visit to Florida visiting my dad and sister, who are about an hour away from Orlando in Winter Haven.
Per tradition, we visited the holiday lights at Cypress Gardens (the first ever amusement park in Florida, which is famous for it's water ski shows!) They had performers through out the park until 10 pm at night!
We also visited Bok Sanctuary which is the highest point in the peninsula of Florida. Bok holds great concerts during the year and has the Pinewood Mansion which is fully decorated for the holiday season. Take a look at the photo of poinsettias at Bok!
As it's hard to avoid shopping in December, I also helped my sister purchase a new laptop -- she got the coolest Red Sony Vaio!!
