The Make-A-Wish Trip is Official

We are thrilled at an AMAZING opportunity our family is being given.

Parker is being granted a wish through the Make- A-Wish Foundation and we are going to Disney World in October.  We are going to be staying at a resort dedicated only for Wish children and their families called Give Kids the World.  It looks like a Fairytale land and it's going to be amazing!

I have to say I am a little  A LOT nervous too.  The thought of all the pre-planning, the long plane ride with both kids, getting all of Parker's equipment down there in one piece, making it a safe and enjoyable experience and hoping Parker stays healthy is overwhelming to say the least.  I keep reminding myself that this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience so I shouldn't sweat the small stuff but we'll see how that goes.

My parents will be driving to Florida to share in the experience with us.  Visiting Disney World with his grandkids is a bucket-list item for my Dad so I'm glad we're going to be able to help him cross this item off the list.  My brother, John, may be joining too which is great because he can wear Alexa out pretty good.  Ha ha.

Our wish granter, Kevin, brought over our Make-A-Wish shirts last week so now it's official.  I wanted a picture of all of us in our shirts so we brought them along with us on our way to the park tonight.   I realized after the fact that a little more pre-planning would've been smart so our hair would've looked a bit nicer but considering we set up the camera on self-timer I think the picture turned out pretty good.

We are so excited and would appreciate prayers for a smooth, safe, healthy and amazing trip!
