One big thing that happened were that we took Lukas on a BIG roller coaster, which had a huge hill that we zoomed down, and his cheeks were flapping in the wind (I sat by him cheering him on like everything was just hunky dory so he wouldn't cry) and he was about to cry when we finally evened out and did lots of zig zags, which he really enjoyed. Upon asking, "How was it?" he answered "Heftig!" (Hefty), and "do you want to go again?" he answered quickly with just one word, "Nein." But later, to tell the STORY about going on the roller coaster, now THAT made it all worth it! He told anyone who'd listen about zooming down that hill in the little car so fast!
We also saw lots of Star Wars figures, which he only knows from Jon Schmidt you tube videos, and got a picture with Vader, and "Luke, I am your father!" I've never had so much fun at an amusement park as I've had with my own family-- following around an excited child, eager to see the next thing. And yes, I always make us stop and get our picture taken by those poor souls at the entrance with cameras around their necks. Alas, 17 years ago (granny talk here, eh?) that was my job, with a goal to shoot 15 rolls on one Saturday. Do I buy em? Meh. Happy Eternal Family Week!! Our sealing date is coming up!!
