she is still limping today but getting better
sprains are very normal around here for her when we do something that she can't wear her braces
Hayden is so slow without them on we end up carrying him because he walks like a 90 yr old

She gets a sprain just by walking too much??? WOW!!! Teaches me a lesson. I sprained my ankle before our Sept trip and complained for weeks. And your kiddos probably never complain. Amazing kids! You are very lucky

the Limo driver eyes about popped out of his head when he saw everything we had

I think you know what happened
I will update tomorrow when I finally get download Grandma's 1500 pictures into my computer

Tink she sprains because she doesn't have any support without her brace and her ankle twists
the bad part is she doesn't say anything hurts so we don't know till she starts to limp

Wow What a start!!!!

So sorry you got sick! I hope it was a momentary thing due to exhaustion.

The limo driver couldn't tell by the passenger list that you'd have STUFF?!?

You've got me on tenterhooks!

Being patient now.

Done being patient. Tell us more! Please.

airport shots

grandma finally brought me her camera so I could download her 1500 pictures
I gave up bringing my camera after the first day

grandpa bring in the kids backpacks


here are the kids in the cockpit
I left Christian's out so I didn't have to mess with his face
Hayden

Jason

Avy

sleeping Ella on the plane I wish we would have brought her car seat on the flight down we didn't make that mistake on the way home
I think she would have slept a lot longer if we had it

Gktw

this our train while I was in line waiting to get our van


We got loaded and off to GKTW
it was so cool to pull in and give our name to the gate keeper
I am so glad we all went together instead of splitting up like we were going to (grandparents at their hotel and Bobbie at hers)
We got the best news when we checked in
they said they had more then enough room for all of us so they were giving us 2 villa's
it took us a while to figure out they meant Bobbie could stay too and they were going to "comp" all her food so she got to stay with us the whole time and eat for free
we all wanted to cry it was so overwhelming
they did say she would need to buy her own park tickets but that was already covered thanks to her being the Navy she got free tickets to Disney world and Sea World (we decided not to go to Universal 1/2 way though the week so she didn't have to pay for that ticket either)

NOW the BAD part!!!!!!!!!!!!


Bobbie called the Hotel to cancel her room and they said no problem have a great time they were wonderful.
BUT when she called EXPEDIA and they REFUSED to refund her money
they said even though the hotel was not going to charge them they were not going to refund her money
so she got charged the whole rate even though she didn't stay at her hotel
so she missed the family shot because she was on the phone we ended up getting a new one the last day we were there
here it is without Auntie

we got one of the brand new villa's that had only been open 3 weeks, right across the street from the playground


After the kids checked out every corner and we got changed into cooler clothes we when to eat at Katies kitchen (it was wonderful)
and spent the day playing at the playground and riding the carousal




We when to bed early and off to Magic Kingdom the next day

More updates!

I am so amazed that they let you guys in the cockpit!!!! I thought they would not do that anymore after 9/11? I guess they make exceptions for Wish Kids. Totally awesome!

I love, love, love that playground!!!!!!

I don't know if I will ever be able to look at it, play on it, etc without crying. I just love it. I can't wait to take Lauren and let her get on the top of it! She has never been on the top of a jungle gym or anything like that. I just can't wait!!!!!!!

it was so much fun watching a little girl (she was 3 and in a power chair) flying up the ramp that Ella was running on

we (dh, Jason, Grandma, Grandpa and I) helped built a universal playground in our town this summer
here are some pictures of us building
in the white packages were 3000 tiles that we had to lay and glue them all down. Dh was main tiler and gluer so he lived down there for 3 weeks

I took Hayden one day to "help" and asked if he wanted to go on it and he looked at me like I had 3 heads and said "who me"
that was when it hit me he had never been on a playground before because it was to hard for him
he had so much fun that day going up and down the ramps

here is Jason he was a great helper he was main picker upper and runner for stuff


I need to get better pictures this summer

I LOVE the picture of you guys at the airport! You've got me grinning from ear to ear. That must be the best shot of a family on vacation EVER!

So glad the pixie dust was out in force for you @ GKTW. Can internet companies have bad karma?? I can't believe (!) that expedia wouldn't refund the $$$. Guess that's why you pay with a credit card and let them duke it out.

Holy smokes - your mom took 1500 photos?! Could we borrow her for our trip?

Your photos are incredible and I can't wait to hear about more of your experiences!

Thanks for sharing!
