Oh how awesome!

I missed the playground pictures!! I just saw them!

I hope everything is ok with you guys! You guys ok?

That little girl in the powerchair is SO cute! I almost took a picture of her...because she reminds me of the pictures I have seen of Lauren as a little girl (she got her first powerchair when she was 3, too!)...so stinking cute!

I love that playground.

If you want to read some more...you can click on the Wish Trippers Unite thread in my siggie and on page 1 there are TONS of links to other Wish Trip reports! They are so uplifting and fun to read. Even the bad times are good when you are at Disney! I have come to know and love so many of these sweet families!!

It's been slow this afternoon at work, so when I don't have anything to do, I've been sneaking over to that thread and reading

Maroo's report about Lauren's trip was the first MAW trip I read and I've been hooked ever since!!

Magic Kingdom

sorry I have been gone
we got a new baby for a week and I had to snuggle while he was here

Monday started out with our first real taste of what it is like to take a 2yr old to Disney World
lets just say she loved the playground but hated the rest of the trip

We got up early and went to meet Mickey and Minnie
that is were the fun began Ella hated them
Hayden was scared too, but did get over it fast then he loved everyone after that


When we were done we got to go meet Maroo
she has a better picture of us so she will need post for me please
she gave us our big give bracelets sorry we didn't get shots but we all love them and wear them all the time
Avy was so excited to get hers, she got mad at me when I made her take off
We all when to eat at the Ginger bread house and ran into Mac and his family there
Maroo was so sweet to stay with my kids so DH and I could get food together for the troops

then off to Disney world
the kids loved the boat ride over and the birds chasing us
our first ride was small world
Ella loved it

then Ella and I hung out while the big kids went on the big rides
this is my favorite shot
Ella playing peek a boo with a baby while the kids were on the tea cups

the buzz light yr ride was everyones favorite the kids rode it 2 times


Off to Avy's one place she wanted to go
the FAIRY'S
she was so excited
we got to see the princesses first and Hayden was not to happy about this

Bell with Bella

The Fairies were so wild I was not happy if they would have woken up the crabby 2yr old we would have been in trouble
the fairies keep calling Ella a woodlin (sp) fairy it was kind of cute and hanging on the stroller. They never did wake her up (mom was smart and took out her hearing aids )

We went home early since we didn't bring warm enough clothes with and the kids were getting cold and crabby so everyone was ready to leave
We got back to GKTW changed into long pants and went to eat supper. Then played a little bit at the playground and off to bed
Where or where will we go tomorrow
the kids had no idea
Poor Christian thought we had to go home and back to school

Oh I love the fairy hiding pic! Those fairies were nuts! Tink actually had a temper tantrum when we were there and sat on the floor and sulked, refusing to take more pics.

mystery day

we did not tell the kids where we were going today
after another wonderful breakfast we loaded up the troops we were off to



SEA WORLD

I think the kids were a little disappointed when we pulled in

First off we went to the dolphin show the kids loved it
Then we went to play with the stingrays the kids could have stayed there all day the only thing that got them to leave the tanks was lunch
then we went to see the


this is my favorite part of the day


after we feed the dolphins we went to the one place Jason wanted to go
when we got there Jason read the map and all he wanted to do was go to the pearl dive
he was really crabby all day till we finally made our way over there
He was a little disappointed when he found out he couldn't dive in the water to get the clam so he didn't know if he wanted to do it after all
we meet a supervisor outside the dive and she talked him into doing it
I will let the pictures tell you what happen
WARNING CLAM ABUSE HERE SKIP PICTURES IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE IT
Here the divers are swimming in the tanks
they were so much fun to watch


here is Jason picking out his clam

we were told you need to pick the ugliest one

TWINS!!!!!!!!!!!!

he got twin blue 6mm (both the same size and the second rarest color) they said they only get twins 1 time a yr and they are never the same size

He was so excited he gave the supervisor a huge hug and started to cry so did she
she then gave me a huge hug and thanked me for letting her be a part of his wish **wiping tears here**
We now have the pearls in our safe and told him he can have earnings made for his wife on his wedding day *praying that happens for him*
ohh they did have to ride Alantis

We hit the Shamu show and the kids got to sit in the wet zone
I would love to go back one day with no strollers and wheelchairs to worry about it was so much fun

What an awesome day!!

You took some great pictures!

The dolphin experience is our favorite, too.

I didn't even know the pearl dive existed! Did they let him pick for free? Does it usually cost something? I definitely want to get the word out to other Wish Families...if it is a normal thing a Wish Child can do.



Aww....

TWIN pearls. How special!!!! What a treat! I know he made that supervisors day!!!

Aw...to give them to his future wife. That is the most precious thing!!



I appreciate you sharing your trip with us SOOOO much! I know you are SO busy with 5 kids to take care of...sharing this with us means so much to me (and I am sure all of us reading!)

Thank you! You made my day!
