If you haven't been to Disneyworld before, it is divided into four parks, with Magic Kingdom being most like Disneyland. We started off the day (us and about 60 thousand other people) at Magic Kingdom. Don't we look fresh at the beginning of the day?
online friend Eva face to face for the first time. I think we first met through the adoptive families limb differences yahoo group, as she has two beautiful children from China who happen to also have limb differences, and we have followed each others blogs since then. We were both excited for our families to finally meet, as they are located in Florida, and both of our husbands had to listen to us wives tell them about these other families whom they did not know. I think our husbands thought we were crazy, but when we all met up at Magic Kingdom, everyone hit it off perfectly! The husbands chatted away as Eva and I talked as if we knew each other for years, and our young children were instant buddies. In fact, we had to chuckle as Caleb and Kaia hit it off extremely well, even holding hands for a few steps, and although it was never spoken between the two of them, I know Jaelyn felt very comfortable spending time with someone who has a similar limb difference as hers, and I think Madeline felt the same.
We started off with the Tomorrowland Speedway, where the kids got to drive their own cars. Look how serious Kaia took her driving. Let's just hope this focus continues into the teen years....
IllumiNations show, which was quite entertaining. It's a shame that our two families live across the country from one another, as I know if we lived nearer, this would be a frequent exchange. Just tell us when Eva, and we will show you the sights of Seattle and more (just don't forget a jacket!).
