We watched a show or two to stay out of the rain & got to meet good ol' Sponge Bob!
We also met Diego, who is much taller in person than I expected. We ate at Mel's Diner, and then caught a wave or two. (I swear the rain was coming down in sheets, I just didn't pull my camera out during those times...we weren't dressed in garbage bags for nothing!!)
After six days of absolute pure joy, the time came to say goodbye to Orlando. :(
We got to the airport 2 hours before our flight & after turning in our rental car we learned that we had a 3 hour flight delay!!! Yikes!! That means we spent 5 hours in the airport, another 5 hours flying home & then 2 hours driving home!
Most people might have wanted to go nuts after all that, but after our perfect week, it didn't even phase us.
The kids were perfect little travelers & were excited to fly once again. The boys slept pretty much the whole flight & again on the limo ride home. Thank heaven for the limo, it allowed us all to sprawl out & get a little more sleep!
You'd think that after so many LONG days of fun that these kids would have pooped out & turned into grouches at some point, but boy did they have stamina!
This was the scene as we pulled up to our house early Wednesday morning:
Words can't describe how grateful we are to have had this wonderful experience. The trip has completely refreshed our spirits & we feel like new people. The people at Make-A-Wish made this the absolute best week of our lives & we come away with so many cherished memories. I can't remember the last time we completely forgot about all of our worries & just had fun!
I don't think it's possible to adequately thank Make-A-Wish, and our wish donor Bill, for the trip of a life- time. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for everything, it was perfection!!!
