Trip Highlights

Brayden's Make-a-Wish trip was an experience that I want to remember every precious moment.

It all started with a pick up at our house by a limousine.  The airport travel went pretty smoothly despite the amount of things we needed to travel (and the luggage overage charges).  Brayden did amazing on the flight.

Everything about the trip was special.  We were treated like royalty by all the staff and volunteers at Give Kids the World.  Give Kids the World is the village where wish families stay.

Every day was filled with an adventure at a park and then at Give Kids the World.  I have so much to share so I am going to try and share a little bit each day this week.

First, big moments for Brayden...

The rides...oh he loves the rides.  He could go on Dumbo all day.  So relaxed with the wind blowing in his hair.  And he went on any ride like Dumbo.  He did rides at a few Disney Parks, Universal and played at Sea World.
He also shot aliens with his daddy on Buzz Lightyear.
All characters give Make-a-Wish families some extra attention so we meet any and all we came across.  Brayden was even sprinkled with Fairy Godmother dust (from Cinderella) for his wish during a parade.
The family was able to feed the dolphins at Sea World.  The trainer then brought the dolphin right up on the ledge and we, Brayden too, could pet the dolphin nose to tail.
The final day at Give Kids the World, Brayden went horseback riding.  He did amazing.

The trip was so much more than we expected.  It was filled with memory making moments.
