    That Oz are is so cool. We saw a bit of it last month, but walked by...not stopping. Super good pictures. :goodvibes

    Glad you got to see the movie. I still need to. I have been worried that it might be too scary for Zoe.

    I think she'll be fine. JJ had to hold our hand a couple times but it was due to suspense. He didn't have to wear his earphones. The D-box seats were right in front of us, so we even felt the vibrations from those chairs and it didn't bother him.

    I do love the movies if that helps. :rotfl: Guess I better start brushing up on my Star Wars info if I'm going to be able to talk my DH into that trip for my son next year!! And so I can keep up with JJ!! My DS would love to meet Ray Park just because Darth Maul is his favorite person right now!! He got a Donald Duck Darth Maul when we were DL over New Year's and it holds a place of honor on his pillow every night.

    Loved the OZ playground!! Really want to go see the movie but don't think the kids would sit still long enough for it. Maybe time to find someone to watch the kids so DH and I can have a date night. Haven't had one of those in a very long time!!!!

    Love of the movies is a plus. :) Ray Park does a martial arts show that includes several pre-selected kids from the audience. We missed it last year, hoping we get to see it this year. Jeremy would probably really love his show.

    Is his Maul a plush?

    A date night sounds really great. I hope you can work it out. It was a fantastic movie.

    Hope you guys do get to see the show this year!! If so I hope your able to take lots of pictures!!!

    Yes his Maul is a plush. I'll try to take a picture of it tomorrow and post it so you can see what it looks like. Jeremy's asleep right now so I don't think it would be a good idea to go in there and try to find it since he's the top bunk of the kids bunk bed and I'm really short compared to it!! I need the step ladder we have to even make his bed. :rotfl2:

    I hope I can get it to work out too. Won't happen this next weekend though since we'll be in DISNEYLAND!!!! :cheer2:

    Love that little playground. Such a nice little escape... it is a shame they don't have it up year round.

    Thanks. That's a first on the balance thing. We didn't have to assist him at all! He took his time. Some kids told him to hurry up. He was so busy concentrating and taking his time that I don't think he heard them.

    He loved it there. Big boost of confidence that he could do that.

    It will all depend on the heat. They stamp the GAC to specifically say that it's not for celebrity events. So to see his show we'll have to get in line way ahead of time. If the temps are too hot, we'll have to forget it. Or take our chances and get in line later with the knowledge that we probably won't get in.

    Dh has a Dark Dark shirt and a picture. Neither of them have ever seen a plush. We've seen action figures of it. That's why I asked if it was a plush. Those action figures wouldn't be too comfy to sleep with, lol.

    So fun!! A Disney trip in your very near future!

    You're right, that would be great!

    I appreciate the playground even more after seeing the movie. He had so much fun. He didn't want to leave, but those pineapple dole whips were calling me.

    Confidence is a really good thing! It's wonderful that he knows he can do it!

    :cool1: I'm amazed at how much better he is doing. I hope and pray he will continue to improve and stay seizure free. Though in the back of my mind I know it could be just a matter of time before another seizure and regression. He was set so far back last spring from a seizure. He is making a remarkable come back though!

    I hope your able to. Would it be possible for someone to stay in line for you and JJ so he could see the show? I can understand why they don't allow the GAC for hings like celebrity events but it makes it very hard for the one's who really do need to use it.

    OOPS! I forgot to take a picture of the plush. I'll have to do it tomorrow after I drop the kids off at school and make that stop at the post office.

    Thank you! We can't wait!!! Now to pull down those suitcases and start packing!!
