Then I got an update every minute on what time it is.
"It's upside down six-three-eight-- can I go now?"
8:47 "Why do the other kids get a shorter minute than me? They are already at preschool. They beat me every day."
Me-"Go look and see if there are any cars. All the kids go to preschool at the same time."
Creighton, "Is after this number preschool?"
"Is it time to go now?"
"How come the clock on your bed has the same numbers as the clock on the counter?"
Finally! 7-5-8! Time to go to preschool!

Will someone remind of this vow Mid-February? How do people choose to live like this!
Truly other than today we have either been inside or in water, so we have survived until today.
It does not feel like October is in a couple of days.

It was very hot and stuffy. People were getting restless, but they told us that as soon as our stop was lifted from the government, we would take off with or without you so get off at your risk. We stayed.
Then we reached the Atlanta area we were in a holding position in the air for 40 minutes. Then when we finally landed we were in a huge line of airplanes to get to the airport.
So our 1 hour flight turned into 4 hours. So we rush over to where the next plane to SLC takes off, and there are no workers. Tristan waits in line for 45 minutes and finally someone shows up.
The worker announces that there are 50 stand-by people for 18 seats. We thought we were doomed. He finally talks to the guy and "Phew!" we not only got seats, we got 1st class seats!
We are feeling really grateful when other people in line and are told that they aren't getting a seat until 2:00 the next day, and the airline wasn't paying for accomodations because it was weather related.
1st class was pretty nice. We had a water bottle, pillow and blanket waiting for us. They also had a basket of snacks that we could have as much of as we wanted. We felt a little bad for people with kids and old people with canes hobbling past us in 1st class, especially since we paid $7 for the seats!
Anyway, we were so grateful to be home and not having to spend the night at the airport.
It was a wonderful trip, and now we are off the another adventure in Phoenix!
The water slide was only open for one day too, but it was a fun slide.
Don't worry, tomorrow you just to hear about getting home and then I'm done!

From the very wealthy-- To the poverty:

After our tour we took the sky ride to the have incredible views of St. Thomas.
You could either go to the bar or go on the nature trail, and since most people chose the bar we got the nature trail all to ourselves. This might have made the whole trip worth it. Absolutely beautiful!
They didn't have any snakes on the island, but it would take me a while to get used to these running around!

His teacher got one out, but she couldn't see the other one and he insisted it was still in there.
So, she called my mother-in-law and she came and got him from school. They couldn't get it out either, so they had to go see a doctor. That didn't really feel so good.
You would think that when you were six you wouldn't be sticking things in bodily orifices anymore, but what can you do? Luckily there was no damage, except for our pocket book.
Moral of the story: Don't stick things in your ears!
The hot tub in the middle of the gym:
Joseph, our super-charged matre' d! He was quite a character.
Leaving from Port Canaveral. Sparkly Night: (Thanks for the clothes Joy!) Ice carving demo:
We decided that if we were going to eat all of the food, we better exercise. (At least for a few minutes) More sparkly nights:
It was so windy the mini-golf was only open one day!
The third day we visited Animal Kingdom, which is waaaay more than a zoo!
They have two Broadway worthy shows (Lion King and Finding Nemo) that are
incredible! We also enjoyed the backward roller coaster and the jungle safari!
Part of the Parade:
Animal Kingdom is a very pretty park!
We got a little wetter than we would have liked on the rapids ride. It is so humid thatyou don't dry either!
Lion King Show:
Jedi training: Brandon was so jealous!
He just couldn't resist.
Indiana Jones stunt show:
