Today we were blessed with tickets to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventures. We have never done those parks and we were amazed! We are already talking about a return trip here to volunteer back at Give Kids the World and to visit Universal. That place was amazing!!!
As we were coming out of Transformers, Gru from Despicable Me and some of his minions were doing a dance show in the street. David was in heaven!!
There was a huge birthday cake, ice cream, games, and a dance party to celebrate Mayor Clayton's big day! David loved the music and here he is dancing with Mrs. Mary and a volunteer. Check out that little blonde girl dancing with them-she too has DS and she was adorable!!!
This is the perfect picture to end our magical vacation. David insisted on one last carousel ride here in the village before heading back for baths and bed. I asked David while we were on the carousel if he has had fun and this was his reaction! Words fail me too on how to sum up the generosity of Make-a-Wish, Give Kids the World, and all the 1500 volunteers that work here in the village to make this a magical vacation for the families that visit here. We are committed to paying the kindness forward because we have learned first hand that it truly does make a difference. We thank God for this precious family time together and all the amazing memories that will forever be tucked in our hearts.
