January 27th, 2012. Day +322. Back in Wisconsin   1 comment

We have had a terrific couple of weeks!  We left for Florida on January 14th and came back home on Monday the 23rd.  We had a wonderful time at the Give Kids the World Village in Kissimmee.  We went to Disney Magic Kingdom a couple of days, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  We also visited Universal Studios and Gatorland (a favorite of Daddy’s) while we were there!  Grandma and Grandpa Elske and Uncle Lyle and Aunt Jenny and the girls AND Grandma and Grandpa Wags and Uncle Scott and Aunt Kim and the kids all showed up on Tuesday and we all got to hang out at the village and be together Tuesday night!  It was the first time since before Charlotte’s diagnosis that all of us were together at once.  Charlotte sure loved having her cousins around her and she led them all around the village showing them all the sites and attractions.  We missed Aunt Lynn and Uncle Bret and Drew but we talked with them a few times during the trip as well.

If none of you have ever checked out Give Kids the World Village, I urge you to do so.  It really is a wonderful place for families of Wish children.

We look forward to returning to the village as visitors the next time we are down there, and even plan to volunteer someday.  I think Charlotte and Molly would really get a kick out of it.

The girls now have colds and we all have a stomach bug so we were able to get back home just in time-not quite the souvenier we had in mind.

As we feel better we will post a more detailed description of our trip along with some pictures!

 

Thanks for checking in on us!
