Make-A-Wish Party

 The nice people from the Make-A-Wish Foundation came over last week and threw a little party for Carter.  They brought chicken stars from Carl's Jr (those are his favorite), a cake with fish on it, a fishing game, and other fish toys for the kids.  The whole party had a fish theme since that's what Carter really loves and that was part of his wish.  His first wish was to swim with fishies.... we couldn't come up with much since he's so young but we thought SeaWorld would be perfect.  He loves anything to do with with fish, whales, dolphins, or any other ocean animals.  And we knew he'd be excited about it since we watched tons of SeaWorld youtube videos while he was in the hospital.  SO we're going to SeaWorld and DisneyWorld!

 They brought a goodie-bag for Carter with this shirt (which will get us to the front of any line at the parks) a Make-A-Wish car, Mickey Mouse water bottle, a few little games for the plane ride, a luggage tag, and a few more little things.  They also gave us our plane tickets and a bunch of information about our trip.  Then they gave us a check for checking our bags, meals, souvenirs, gas, etc.  Wow!!  We feel so thankful for the generosity of so many who have made this trip for Carter possible.  We are so excited and so looking forward to making this a fantastic trip for him.
 He gave our sweet Wish Granter a big hug as she was leaving.
