Disney! Day 1 Part 1

I had a post all written and lost it. Motel wireless is pretty stinky--esp. when it comes to uploading pics.

I will have to update everyone tomorrow since it is too late to rewrite. We had a wonderful day! I will leave you with this--

Vu was the first one to wake up this morning. He saw a peek of light coming in and roused the world proclaiming it was time to go see Buzz Lightyear! He was also convinced he was going to be able to find a two sided lightsaber at the Star Wars store—like Darth Maul’s. Mind you, these are not available in stores anymore--believe me, we have looked! (I did find one on e-bay but it was over $100 and I love my son but there is a point that the addiction must be curtailed.)

I assured Vu over and over that they probably would not have double sided lightsabers but he was holding onto his hope of hope they would. I patiently explained that if they don't sell them in stores they probably won't at Disneyland since Star Wars isn't even a Disney movie. He kept saying, "But they might Mom, right? They might?" I knew they wouldn't but how could I burst his bubble?

I guess dreams really do come true! Not only did he find them, they were Build-A-Lightsaber style complete with lights and sounds—definitely the highlight of his day and maybe of his whole life!

Patrick was pretty jazzed too and they both spent their money from Grandma and Grandpa on Darth Maul lightsabers. Then we proceeded to try and poke out half the eyes of other visitors as we hauled them around Disney. Note to self--don't buy lightsabers (esp. double-sided) until the end of the day.

Thanks Lord, that you care about the wishes and excitement of small boys and blessed Vu's hope for a 2 sided light saber!

Too, too cute about the light sabers. I bet the boys were just tickled. Looks like you're having a great time in Disney already.
