Disney Day Four!

The last two days have caught up to us and we are a wee bit tired.  Today to rest up some we took a break from Disney parks and headed out to SeaWorld.  I had not been there since I was a little girl and we had a good time! 

Wish families are blessed with a chance to sneak in a back way and feed the dolphins.  We thought only David would get to do it, but amazingly all five of us got to go!  Hope was horrified and hid in the stroller.  Kyle was grossed out and took pictures for us, and David loved to watch them but did not want to touch their fish food:) Mike and I had a ball!
If the school superintendent gig does not work out for Mike he could get a job at Seaworld with the dolphins!  He was a natural feeding them!  Ha! What an awesome life experience for us!  Kyle and David did touch the dolphin. 
After that we headed to Shamu stadium for that AWESOME show!  Wow!  We all loved that so much and....
we were blessed with special seating but we chose the no splash zone.  Here is David yelling and trash talking to Shamu that He did not get us wet!  David actually cried big tears when it was over!
That show was so awesome!  There was also trick or treating going on at Seaworld, so the kids got to trick or treat while we were there!  That was an unexpected surprise. 
Dave has a new girlfriend now-Joan the jellyfish!  She was so sweet with him. 
After she smooched on David, she fell in step behind Kyle and put her arm around him and gave him a big smooch too-you can see that he was scared to death!  ha! It was sweet that she was so attentive to Kyle.  David has gotten so much attention here because he is the wish kid that I often wonder if this is hard for Kyle. 
We had a shark enounter and went in the shark tank!  Seaworld was way better than I had imagined!  They had several roller coasters there that Kyle loved, several kiddie rides that David and Hope loved and this awesome Antartica ride/exhibit that you actually meet real penguins in their frigid enviroment.  AWESOME!
We headed back to the village before dinner to get an early bedtime for David.  After dinner we went into the Castle of Miracles to let David sign his star. 
A volunteer helped him put it in the fairy treasure box so tonight she can magically put it on the ceiling!  Tomorrow when the gift fairy delivers another round of gifts for the kids, a sign will be dropped off with directions on where David's star is hung in the castle.  We will forever be part of the Give Kids the World village and we can come back anytime for the whole day and visit and enjoy the village.  Amazing!!  Tonight while we were there doing David's a family whose child had passed had come back to visit their child's star.  It was so touching yet oh so heartbreaking.  When you see all those glittering stars in the castle you just wonder how many children made it to adulthood and of course you pray and pray and pray that youe child will be one that can come back as an adult and visit their star. 
Tonight here in the village we were invited to the World's Largest Candyland game!  It was at the huge and gorgeous playground here in the village.  You got to do all these games and fill up your card when they were complete.  You could turn your completed card in for a prize for all three kiddos!  Here is David and all of us playing a real  life game of Candyland around the playground with a volunteer! 
The boys made airplanes out of candy with the help of volunteers! 
Of course the gingerbread man was there!  David kept wanting to race him because of the book.  The kids for their gift today from the fairy was an authentic Candyland game but it is the Give Kids the World edition.  How awesome!
We ended this awesome day by visiting the cookie cart on our way back from the party.  In the evenings there is a cart that drives around with lemonade and cookies for anyone that wants one!  Amazing:) 
We are getting to bed early tonight because tomorrow morning Mickey and friends are visitng the village for photo ops!  We are so excited!!!
