CP Awareness Day 2017

Saturday March 25th, was National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day. We all sported our green in support of those living with Cerebral Palsy - including our very own boy Alex.

His School, Oakwood Elementary recognized the day on Thursday. I took cupcakes in for the class to celebrate and I asked his teacher to get a photo of the whole class for me. I loved seeing how many kids wore green to support their friend Alex.

Florida 2017 - Part 2

February 21, 2017

I waited my whole life for this day, the day we visited Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. I never went to Disney when I was a kid so I knew this day would be special when it came. What was even more special, was that it was our first visit as a family and as individuals. Eric had never been either.

It was a bit of a process getting in, there were what seemed like a million people and it was frustrating at times. But you make the best of it. To be honest, the experience as a whole was a bit disappointing. The crowds were huge which made the lines forever long. We did obtain the disability pass which only allowed us to get a return time for one ride at a time. We had to wait to ride that ride before we could get a wait time for another ride. The whole process was very frustrating because in 12 hours we rode less than 10 rides and met 4 characters and for the cost - it's a hard pill to swallow.

If we decide to go again, we will go at a different time of year and hope that the crowds aren't so bad. The experience we did have though, I will cherish forever because I got to share it with the three loves of my life.

They did not want to take pictures
So Excited

Donald Duck is both Alex and Evan's favorite character, so I was determined to have them meet Donald while we were there. It was one the best moments of the day.

Alex LOVED Donald's feathers
