One in a minion experience at Universal Studios

We are settled back into regular life after two weeks in Florida. It was an epic adventure and it’s taken a lot of time for me to sort through my thoughts and thousands of photos. We really did it all during this most recent trip. Our family visited amusement parks and we spent time with…
