We're trying to look for something that might work. He likes to pull things out of his ears and off of his head, but he'll pull my hands up to his ears when he want's noise blocked. If we could just find something that he'd leave alone and understand it is there to help him. Yeah, we'll hope for the best and if not... well, we'll be back. We're definitely planning to take those breaks, just hoping that we *might* not need to use all of the breaks we're planning. I just went and checked it out. It's full of fresh information to me. Full disclosure: I love thrill rides and the "trial run" is a good excuse to get DW to agree to go. We're going with a few of DS's favorite aunts and uncles, so we'll get in the thrill rides that we can and let him ride what he's able to ride. We might try to hit the water park right when it opens, but otherwise, we'll just take it easy, hit the main attractions and try to have fun. Great idea! Well, I know what you mean about schedules aligning and the movie types. We battle the same thing, but it has worked out well in our favor so far this summer. I can help you with the mosquito thing though. We take citronella candles, tiki torches and insect repellant. It works wonders. The tiki torches and bug spray also make for some good entertainment between movies.
