Oh yes that was quite the day. I didnt put this in there but we had had so much of the rain (it litterally rained from one side of florida to the other from the time we were in Carousel of Progress till we left) that we went to the train station sat down and I called my mom ready to come home. Yes I called my mom And unbeknownst to me she had fallen the night before and broke her arm(elbow) and never said a word. I found out on our way home from my sister. My mom said we were so miserable she didn't want to make it worse by me worrying about her

Hey, how old are Ty and Sierra anyway? You don't list it in your signature and I didn't read it in your intro. No reason, just curious
It is definately bringing up some great memories. And how much better this trip will be. We will be better prepared for Ty and know how to handle things alot better. And if it rains how to make the most of it instead of sitting and sulking like we did alot the last time

Sierra is 12 1/2 and Ty is 10. I will have to add it. I must have forgot to put it in

We will be off to neuro on Wednesday for Ty to discuss his veeg and some things we have seen the last few weeks. Hopefully she will be able to give us some insight on what we are seeing as far as energy goes.

Last day at Disney for 2008 tr in the Wish trip ptr

Last day in Disney 2008 tr

We are able to sleep in just a bit before we have catch ME for our flight out so we head out around the resort for some last pics. It was a really hot but sunny day so we had a little bit of fun with it. Although it was a bit bright

First a stop by the "love bug".


Then a quick seat in the race car (I do mean quick since it was a bit toasty on the tushy)



Ok it's hot can we just go already?


Sporting our new tattoos


And the kids are actually taller then dh for once


After some pics we head off to the airport and are homeward bound.

to be continued..

Shuttle? What shuttle? Homeward bound 2008 tr inside the Wish trip ptr

Seriously WHERE's the shuttle???This is it the 2008 tr finale


So we we board our flight homeward bound. Sierra is sitting by the window Im in the middle and dh and Ty are behind us. There was this nice gentleman sitting next to me who really tried to talk to me to keep my mind off the flight. It was a pretty bumpy and stormy flight. We had to take a different route home and it was all I could do not to shiver in front of the kids from pure fright. He kept talking to me all about his past flights and well some of the stories didn't help me at all but he didn't let one minute go by without saying something to pass the time. We had to fly around for a bit before we landed because the storm was so bad. We had a very bumpy landing and lets just say I told myself I would NOT get on another plane (you know that never say never thought comes to mind now) We land at the airport and there were buckets everywhere catching the rain. I called my mom who informed me that we had just landed right after a tornado warning and that was the reason we had to be rerouted then back around.

So we go out to catch the shuttle back to our hotel and we waited, talked to a nice family before their shuttle arrived. Talked to some more people. Waited some more. Um no shuttle So I call after quite a long while of waiting in the pouring rain(we were under a shelter thankfully) and the hotel informs me I was supposed to call as soon as we arrived at the airport. Um someone forgot to tell me that part So the shuttle gets there and the guy gets Ty and his wheelchair on the lift. Ty is very capable of getting on the shuttle without his wheelchair but he was pretty warn out by this time. So the driver pushes the button to lift. Um it bounced a bit then nothing. So it was just up a little bit off the ground. Ok I say no way he is getting off this thing. So we get him off and leave his chair on it. This chair does not fold well at all so we really needed it to be on the lift. Well he tries. And nothing. Tries again nope nothing. And over and over nothing. So we are sitting at the airport for at least 2-3 hours at this point. Not happy travellers at all. Tired and tired of rain.So the guy kept calling people at the hotel, his manager on MY Cell phone because he didnt have a radio nor a cell phone So he finally calls the big boss who tells him to get this Drive with the lift down So he hangs up and tells us what he said and I said I THINK NOT! That he will not put our lives on the line because that wouldnt be possible on bridges and other cars going by us. So him and dh work more on the lift and they finally figure out how to get the manual crank bar out and they finally got the lift back in. When we got to the hotel I spoke with the lady who didnt care to hear what I had to say so we decided to trek the 2 hours straight home in the pouring rain exhausted and just wanting our bed and this trip to be done and over with. So we got home at I think around 2 or 3am and took the necessities in and crashed in our nice cozy beds. I never thought we would be able to go back to Disney. Ty's Wish trip will be so much diffferent as we will be able to do things we would have never dreamed we would be able to do on a trip. We budgeted like crazy for the 2008 trip. We were so upset that it was a hard trip. Ty is really looking forward to doing alot more on his Wish trip. We are so thankful that he has his Wish to go back for a do over trip. We learned so much and will be better prepared. Now no rain allowed!!

So there you have it. The trip (not so magical) to Disney World

This upcoming Wish trip will really give the kids the true meaning of Disney.

It was a hard day and I was so thankful to be on the ground. But we learned so much from that trip. Looking back it seems like there was a "reason" it was a difficult trip.Like we learned how to handle things for his Wish trip that back then we knew nothing about. But God knew what he was doing. Only he knows what is in store for us and all of the lessons he has for us to learn. And we learned alot. There were wonderful memories made that trip outside of the hard times. But memories are that. Good ones and Bad ones they are memories the same.

You've got a great attitude Tonya I'm with ya..............everything happens for a reason and everything that happened yesterday helps you better deal with today.

I got a kick out of you saying "yes, I called my Mother". We never get too old for our mothers do we?

A try at the Itinerary what do you think?

I finally sat down and really looked at the days today. I was able to come up with a rough draft itinerary. No exact times since it is subject to change once we get there. But at least I have "sort" of a plan.

July 10-16th

Sat-Arrive, orientation and check out the Village and no doubt swim swim swim since both kids are water bugs.

Sun-Universal Studios/IOA

Mon-Sea World, IOA, Disney character meet and greet

Tues-AK, DHS

Wed-MK, Horseback riding

Thurs-Epcot,Winter Wonderland/Christmas

Fri-Come home

2 days of US, IOA is definately not set in stone. If we like them and need to we will do the 2nd day if not we will take our time at Sea World and then head back to the Village or go back to another park?

I ordered the matching bottom to my tankini today. It was even cheaper then it was 3 days ago

Now Im on the lookout for Ty some shorts. He is so skinny but button shorts are a little hard for him. And some sandals he can wear with his afo's that's easily on and off for the airport.
