I've heard that same kind of scream way too many times from my DD who is only a little older than O... I hope he's all better now and it wasn't too serious. The last time I heard it from DD she had fallen off the swing and broken her arm... 36 hours before we needed to leave for a vacation in the Outer Banks. I can't imagine having it happen while on vacation and away from familiar doctors and hospitals.

The cliffhanger is killing me...!

That is not funny to leave us all hanging! I am going to guess he bit his tongue eating the candy and you couldn't get it to stop bleeding or he got some part of him caught in the stroller???

Okay, so totally not fair to leave your hanging, but I had a kid needing help with homework, then I went to bed, and that pesky thing called a job got in the way this morning. But, it was fun to read all the responses today when I logged in


When we left off, we were leaving DHS, and O (DS3) is screaming "The Scream".


Apparently he was looking at the tube of powdered candy, the cap opened and poured in his eye. The whole entire tube.

I grab him and pull him out of the stroller and off to the side and ask DH to give me bottled water from the bottom of the stroller. He says he can't find any, some guy is offering me his, which is nice, but it was open and I didn't want his germs in my son's eye. Eww. However, if you are reading, thank you. It was anice thought!

I say we have some, DH says no, I say yes we do (I packed them this morning which is why we're missing the Passporter pocket, remember?) DH is still saying no, I'm saying yes, and he throws an empty bottle at my head.

My husband = not so good under pressure.

(sorry, hon. You're not )

I yank the stroller to me, get in the basket and find not one, not 2 but THREE bottles of water (told you we had water!) and start pouring one in O's face. He's a mess, we both have blue candy water everywhere.

Remember the $35 sweatshirt from MNSSHP night? Ruined

I grab O and head to the front where a CM finally spots a screaming O and steers us to first aid. The girls in there were lovely. Rinsed his eye out for along time, then gave me the rinse so I could pin him down and do it more while she ran off for ice. By this time O's eye is swollen practically shut and he's a wreck from crying so hard, and his whole face is stained blue (so am I). There is some talk of him possibly rubbing his eye and scratching something, but once he calms down, we made him read some letters off a poster and he did just fine.

They finally deem us okay to go, gave us extra packets of eye wash to use later, and we head out, stopping to take some pictures for prosperity sake. (or for the scrapbook)



See the blue stain on his sleeve


By the time we get through the gates, off the tram and into the van, O's eye is still swollen, he's sniffling and whining that he's hungry. Plus, he's traumatized.

"I wanna go home"

"We're going, baby"

"No, not our new home. Our old home. Super far away"

As far as O is concerned vacation is over. And honestly, I was tired. I was crabby. And I could have packed up and left FL at this point too. I was so afraid it was just going to get worse from here. (unfortunately, I was kinda right) but I'm a trooper, I'm a mom, and we're going to stick with it.

We need something fun. We need to snap O out of his funk. We need food.

Fortunately for the kids, I know exactly where we're going for dinner tonight.

Awww, poor little dude (and poor Mommy too!). I'm glad it ended well, but it sounds like you were a lot calmer than I would've been if one of my boys had done that!

Loving reading your TR - you're a great writer

Awww your poor DS. That is so terrible. Well I have been reading your trippie but haven't commented until now. Sorry your trip was far from perfect, I know how you feel though as my DS4 was sick on our october trip and we seemed to be a magnet for rude people too. The Parade crashers are the worst though followed by the drunks at F&W. It's like they forgot they are at a family park not a nightclub. candy and eyes just don't agree with each other . My DS sprayed DD's sour candy spray into his eye while we were driving in the car 2 months ago. DH and I were yelling at each and we had to stop at a publc restroom to rinse his almost closed eye. It was awful. Looking forward to more and hoping your little boy's eye feels better soon.

I had been stalking the Disboards for months waiting for news and finally it came.



T-Rex Cafe was opening before our trip!


If you read my intro, you know O is a dinosaur fiend. He knows all their names, if they eat meat or plants, weird little trivia facts. His favorite book is this dinosaur sticker book, that we have to read every night before bed. It has 100's of dinos in it with their names and fun facts about them.

If you ask him what he wants to be when he grows up, he says a "Dinodaur digger"

T-Rex Cafe was a must. I wasn't quite sure when we'd go, and actually thought we might wait until K flew in so he could go with us, but somewhere between freezing all day, lost tickets and a pound of powdered sour candy poured in an eye, I realized tonight should be the night.

I was concerned about getting there at 5:30-6:00 and that we'd have to wait forever, especially the way our day was going. Lucky for us, if we would sit in the water room, they could seat us ASAP.

We got very lucky, because by 6:15-6:30 the wait was up to 45 minutes!

The t-rex at the entrance. He roars about every 20 minutes. First time it did it we were in line and Owen about fell down, and shoved us all out of the way to watch it. I don't think he took his eyes off of it our entire meal!


This was the view above us


Straight across was the volcano room. The volcano erupts every 20 minutes and there is a meteor shower of lights on the ceiling. It's very loud. VERY.


Just as an FYI, it took awhile for our waitress to come take our drink orders, but after that, she was very quick about coming back. I've heard the service can be slow, but after the initial wait, we found we didn't wait long for anything.

We let the kids all order their drinks in the special flashing cups


When I say kids, I mean all the kids


I had the best drink - Tropical Cottontini. They take a wad of cotton candy, stick it in the glass, then bring a shaker of spiked tropical punch and pour it on the candy to sweeten the punch. OMG it was so good. And I got to keep the shaker (actually, our waitress bought a clean shaker and told me I could take the dirty one home too if I wanted, so we ended up with 2. O uses them as cups!). After the day we'd had, that drink was much much needed



After we ordered dinner, the waitress told us to take our time looking around




O was in heaven. He was mesmerized. I bet we walked for 10 minutes.

We thought the food was very good. I had mushroom ravioli and it was very yummy. J had chicken friend steak (he's a big comfort food kinda guy), DH had fried shrimp, which was good, but he was wishing he had my ravioli I cannot remember what the kids had, but they both pretty much cleaned their plates, so it must have been good.

After dinner we took O over to Build-A-Dino and of course, this is where he wanted to spend his souvenier money.



He says triceratops are his favorite, and I was so excited when I saw they had one. However, he decided on a purple t-rex, and named him Fred.


Poor Fred's roar box slipped out of his hand while they were stuffing him, so his roar box is now located on his hip somewhere. You have to squish the poor thing in half to make him roar

R took this opportunity to throw a fit. Late nights/early mornings were probably just taking their toll, but she insisted on getting a dino with her money too. She had talked for weeks about getting Minnie earrings, and now she was willing to throw it out the window for stuffed dinosaur? I finally gave in because it was her money, and we had told them they could spend it as they chose, and I know she loves stuffed animals (Her top bunk is completely full of stuffed animals) She picked out the ankylosaurus (which O says you can tell it's anklyosaurus "cuz it has a spiky tail") R's dino's name is Anna.


It took them forever to pick clothes for them, get them ready to go, do their birth certificates etc. Cheerleader costume for Anna, blue jean shorts and t-rex t-shirt for Fred. I completely forgot to take a picture of their final products!



Once we finally paid and got out of there, it was dark. Since we were in DTD, we decided to do our souvenier/Christmas shopping. My first stop was the place that had the scrapbooking stuff the last time we were there, only it was closed!!!!! That was enough to totally ruin my trip I really wanted to find a dated 2008 scrapbook pack like I bought in 2006. Nothing. I bought the one with the 4 park themed stuff at World of Disney, but it's not the same (whine over)

While at World of Disney we bought our essentials: postcard stamps, Christmas ornament, fridge magnet, t-shirt for DH and a necklace for R's friend (she had sent a giftcard with R with instructions on what she wanted) World of Disney was horrendously busy and we had to wait forever to check out. Owen was tired and crabby and out of control. I was so ready to get out of there, and was debating going home, but there were a couple of things I needed to pick up first.

Next up Once Upon A Toy. DH kept the kids occupied while I stuffed the big Potato Head containers full of parts - one for R and one for O. We bought one box full on our last trip, and the kids play with them ALL the time. I also grabbed the cutest kid themed Star Wars figures for my 1 year old nephew. My brother is a big Star Wars fan, so he'll probably like them better than my nephew!

I wanted to go to Ghiradelli so bad, especially since our MNSSHP maps had coupons, but we were all just way too stuffed from dinner.

On the way to the van we had to stop for the Lego pictures
