This week has absolutely just flown by. There has been so much to see and even more to do. What a remarkable organization this Make-A-Wish Foundation is. We have been so deeply touched by all we have experienced. I want to say that Taylie sure did deserve it though. She went through something really horrible. We are so blessed to have this opportunity to spend this quality time together as a family. I love my little family so much more than I could ever express in words.
So this is pretty much the last day to really go anywhere to play. We have to fly out @ 2:00 tomorrow. I'm not really looking forward to the long travel back, especially the plane ride. We'll think about that later because we have some more playing to do!
Today was a toss up. We still have ticket to Epcot, Hollywood, or Universal Studios. We decided that it was going to be Hollywood studios. This is one that I have been to before. I remember really enjoying it and so here we go......Again!!!
Welcome to our day @ Hollywood Studios!
Gotta have at least one photo of the family...right! Bret always feels funny asking someone to take our picture.
Talked Taylie into riding the Tower of Terror, with her Daddy of course.
This is what she thought of it after wards. Man, am I a mean Mom or what! She was very surprised with all the up and down. She told me that it hurt her bum a little bit. I felt terrible! Bret loved it and he assured me it wasn't that bad for her. Most of it she thought was fun!
Mayzi was so excited to see the same Barrel of Monkey's that we have at our house. Only that they were like so much bigger! Notice Taylie not happy with her Mom still. :(
Decided to ride something everyone could go on. Talk about fun! You just ride around in this car thing and shoot targets and aliens from Toy Story and such. It Tally's up your score at the end and we'll let's just say that with Sunnie riding on my lap I did terrible. Nowhere near Bret's score. So we switched Sunnie and he held her for round two, and yep, I still didn't to that great. He gave me a pretty hard time about this the rest of the day! Hunters...geez!
We needed a chance to sit down and rest, and get Sunnie fed and change her bum. So the girls voted and it was Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Show! Hot Dog, hot dog.........!
I think Taylie still likes me after all. She just wasn't so sure about any more rides. They chose our little family to be the honorary family. Which meant that we got to sit on the front row. The girls thought this was so cool, especially my Mayzi!
This is us trying to capture the entire family ourselves...almost, but not quite :)
We walked around and saw the Parade. A whole bunch of The Incredibles' characters, which was fun. We decided that we had done all that we were going too. It was only like 3:00 so we rushed back to the Village and played around there. Taylie still had some fun stuff she needed to do before we leave. Can't believe we leave tomorrow. Feels like it zoomed by sometimes, but I think my girls are tired. They have been going pretty hard core everyday! As soon as we would start driving all three of them would just zonk right out!
We of course need to get our swimming suits on. Tonight there is a huge pool party for everybody! We are excited for that later, but right now we have some being silly to do :)
It's a decoration...Fun huh! Hard as they could push it just wouldn't budge!
Still snoring. Old Elmer was always snoring. Mayzi always was the one to bring it to our attention.
First things first. Taylie needs to raise her star in the Castle of Miracles. Then all the rest can follow.
This was really fun. She received a star and then had a chance to write her name on it. Then we placed it is this fairy box and closed the lid. We watched it all come to life and start shaking. Then on three digital screens on the wall we watched the fairy take her star up to the sky. There are over 80,000 stars hanging in the Castle of Miracles. It was really neat.
Then it's time to make a pillow with this crazy machine. It was like they brought it out of a book or something. All they had to do was push and keep twisting and pushing buttons and levers etc until the pressure was right to pop out a pillow and then it did. Very fun for the girls.
Then we had to visit the La Ti Da Spa. Get the nails painted and a hand massage and a little painting on the arm. A Rocket! Of all things a girl could ask for. Not ponies or princesses or flowers, but a rocket. The girl painting it was cute. She painted it pink. That's my Taylie :)
Mayzi is so particular with her nails. She was cracking everyone up. Making sure things were done right, just the way she wanted it. She is so Hilarious!!!
We sat in the Castle of Miracles for a while and colored pictures and played with Lego's etc.
Thought it was cute watching Bret be really patient with all the feminine things going on. He waited like a real man in the My Little Pony Room. Not much choice when you have three girls :)
Then it was time for Miniature Golf! Was a lot of fun, especially the part where Mom won the game!
Mayzi really loved this big scary dinosaur! (well not actually)
You might not believe me, but you reached the end of this day! It was a big day and we squoze in as much as we possibly could. Only one more day left and still a few things we haven't done yet. Keep reading as I bring our fabulous Make-A-Wish vacation to a close! I think I just shed a tear :( It's been a great week for the Abbott Family!
