When I Wish Upon a Star

Somedays, I hate being as right as I usually am. When I picked up Younger Bro this afternoon, I felt a very, very warm boy. When I picked up The Boy a short time later, I felt the same thing. Sigh. Matching 101 degree temperatures, axillary of course. So, they've been slow and lethargic all day. We knew that YB was sick when he'd actually sit still on our laps for a few minutes.

But, the Make-a-Wish people were still coming at 11:30 this morning. They came, they saw, they conquered... and brought presents! They brought t-shirts for everyone, they brought blocks and markers (thanks, folks... ) and cool make-a-wish Hot Wheels cars! The Boy was enchanted.

It turns out that the trip is even better than we expected! It's a 6-night trip, with 3 days at Disney, 2 at Universal Studios and 1 at Seaworld. We'd be staying in a villa at the "Children of the World" resort, which has a few bedrooms, laundry facilities, and a kitchen. They'll provide breakfast and dinner every day, and give lunch money for us at the park! In addition, they have 24-hour ice cream availability and characters that come to the resort. And, Wednesday night is Adult Night, where they kick the adults out and leave the babies with a great sitter!

We haven't set a date yet, because we're not employed. I think that we're leaning towards one of February break, April break, or Thanksgiving in 2011. It's going to be a magnificent trip!

Hope the boys feel better soon, but have fun at Disney! That's pretty awesome.
