Hmmmm. Where have I been all week?
Blue got sick Sunday and missed school Monday which got us off to a weird start.
We just didn't do much.
I did pull down the balloons I'd strung up for Daddy's birthday.
They're still all over the house, and that makes the kids happy, but no, that's not very exciting news.
The Alabama cousins are in Florida for their spring break but spring break came and went for us already so no plans to see them. Until, that is, I found out they were going to Disney on Thursday. Then I scored some tickets and arranged for a day trip.
Getting the boys out the door by 7:15am? No problem. Entertaining them in the car with a movie and snacks? Easy. Getting them in their Gator gear, sunscreened up, and out the car? Cinch. Folding the stroller and getting 3 boys and a stroller onto the parking lot tram. Oy. Not fun. Forgetting I could have gotten Toby a special needs pass until we were already 2/3rd through the day? Oy. Not smart.
We met up with our cousins. I got to see a college friend. A childhood friend who lives in Orlando and has season passes joined up after her kids were done with school. It was a full day seeing great people. But. Oy. Holy lots of work for this Momma.
Toby hated more rides than he liked. We had one anxiety throw-up incident and then at the 10pm after a long, long day we were misdirected during our WALK to the van (no way I could do the tram again with the stroller that Toby was then sleeping in) so even though I knew where I was parked (Heroes lot, Simba 20! I STILL remember.), it was a long while getting there with an exhausted Blue cyring softly as he walked. :-(
But the boys slept most of the way back, were all tucked in their beds by 12:30am and just when I was about to congratulate myself on such a long day I got on facebook to see that the rest of the world was up either at the Hunger Games or watching the Gators basketball game. So we were all up together.
And today on during school drop offs (oh yes, they were made to go to school today. They can rest up this afternoon.) we were happily chatting about favorite rides and events.
Me: Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor, Toby calling out his name every time they asked another audience member his/her name.
Kaden: Barnstorner! Two Times!
Blue: Buzz Lightyear Space Rangers ride (two times!), Orbiter
Toby: He was still in bed for this conversation. (Kevin is home sick today.) but he seemed happiest running around Huck Finn's Island.
