He was a bit perplexed initially but a printed itinerary of the upcoming week finally answered the questions brewing in his mind and he knew we were headed to Disney!
|Buddy was sooooo brave getting stitched up|
We broke the trip into two days and spent the night with my sister and her husband in Savannah (thanks Molly and Daniel :)) and then finally arrived in Orlando the next day. Lego Land was first on the agenda (yes, Buddy was beside himself with excitement) and despite the cold temperatures, we had a great time and were all amazed with the Lego creations all over the park. My favorite moment of the day was when Buddy and Lou were driving “Lego cars” in a mock city, complete with a roundabout, stop signs, and traffic lights. They were debriefed before taking off about traffic rules such as stopping at red lights and stop signs, merging into the roundabout, etc. I was literally doubled over laughing, tears streaming down my face, as Lou ignored every single traffic rule, barreling past her fellow drivers. Buddy, on the other hand, was the ever so cautious driver and adhered to all the rules of the road. I cringe when I think of Lou when she has a license in hand one day, but for now, it was hysterical to laugh at her complete oblivion!
|If there’s any question if he enjoyed Lego Land 🙂|
|Legos AND Darth Vader–he was in Heaven!|
|Yep, she’s driving on the wrong side of the road|
That night we found Orlando’s only Ethiopian restaurant, in honor of Jones, and feasted. I wanted so desperately for him to be a part of this celebration but I silently vowed that we’d repeat the trip again one day with him in tow.
