Our vacation- {Part 4}

So after we went swimming, we headed back to the boardwalk to go to the Rainforest Cafe for dinner. If you have never been there, you have got to try and find one near you. It is a great place!!! As soon as you walk in, you feel like you are in the rainforest!! Every half hour there is a thunderstorm complete with thunder and lightening effects and every 15 minutes the animals come to life! It is an experience that you have to experience for yourself!! I didn’t get a chance to get any pictures because it was kind of dark in there, and I didn’t want my flash to bother anyone. Oh, and what did I get to eat you might be wondering? I got the coconut shrimp and it was amazing!!!! It was about 6 or 7 of them and they were each on a stick. The breading was delicious!! I definitely recommend it!!
After we were done eating, we went to the Pier Shops. What my fiancé and I loved the most was a shop called Brookstone. It has all of these gadgets for everyday life that make things simple! It was just awesome!!! My favorite item that we saw there was this:
It’s an ice pop maker! How it works is that you freeze the pop maker (the thing on the left), take it out of the freezer, put the sticks into it, pour juice into the molds (you could even put fruit or other food into it), then 7-9 minutes later, the pops are done!! I definitely need one of these!!!
100_2400The also have a huge water fountain with lights and they do a show every hour on the hour. It’s pretty cool!

This was taken from the end of the pier looking onto the boardwalk, but I had to take the picture from inside because they had just locked up the doors, probably because it was raining.
My fiancé pointed out the bird sitting out there, so I took a pic of it.
I could have stared at the ocean forever, it’s just so calming!
We saw this and we’re like, “I’ve heard of Turkey Hill before!!”
I freaked when I saw these!!! They are the same kind of chairs that they have on American Idol!!!! Of course, I’m sure the ones that American Idol has are made of better material, because these were so light. But I loved them! When my fiance and I have a house someday, I would love to have a little bar at the kitchen with these chairs to sit in!!! I bet I could find some!
And that was the end of day 2. Only one more day of our vacation is left to recap. Look for that post tomorrow! And if you’ve missed parts 1-3, check them out here:
