The excitement mounts as we all begin really looking ahead to Sam's Wish. Yesterday we met with our WISH Granters. They showered the boys with gifts and each gift could not have been more perfect for each boy. They are an amazing couple and you could tell that they are doing something that they love. While the boys played with their new treasures, we talked a little about Sam's Wish. Choice #1 (of course) is a Disney package... basically park hopping and then a side trip to Sea World too. Sam loves water, music, those little car rides that go round and round, fish (aquariums) ... so a trip to Disney would be amazing for him as well as the other boys. They are at the perfect age. Although I still can't believe that I actually turned down 2 wishes before (seriously, what was I thinking) I am so very thankful that we are going though this process now rather than a few years ago. I am telling you... Blessed and Lucky are we!
We decided that we would rather drive than fly. Not to mention all the stuff we would have to bring, but how would you like to be the person to sit in front of Sam for the several hour flight while he kicked the back of your seat... and the singing... who could ignore the singing. And I don't even want to think about the multiple diaper changes and recycled air... it would be like flying through the sky in a really large diaper pail with a bunch of other people who really hate us...LOL. So driving it is. Now we won't know for a few weeks the exact date or particulars but I think we are shooting for early to mid May. I will post more WISH notes later when we know more. In the mean time Andrew is making a list of all the characters that he wants to see and that he thinks Sam will want to see, exactly how many dolphins he wants to feed, all the different species of Sharks he will be able to see, who actually lives in the castle (it is a toss up between Shrek & Fiona or some other princess) and exactly how many meals will be replaced with ice cream. More later:)
