We’ve decided to take the kids to Disneyworld. We went there two years ago for Nathan’s Make-a-wish trip and they LOVED it! They have been talking about returning there ever since and they want to stay at the Nickelodeon Hotel. Those commercials they run on Nick pay off!
Anyway – we are unsure how long Nathan will feel good enough to enjoy a trip like that and so we are going very shortly!
I am hesitant to look forward to it since after all we have been through I wonder what the chances are that it will actually work out and we will be able to go. We booked a package and added cancellation insurance and so if we have to cancel it will be ok.
My parents will drive down and meet us there and my mom will be taking care of Lauren so the rest of us can have fun. It is not going to be a very fun time for her (Lauren that is).
We decided to just spend the money and pay off the credit card debt in the future but it looks like we will be getting some financial help for the trip which is wonderful.
Nathan might need to start treatment by then but I don’t know what difference a week or two will make at this point. I think that we will just have begun figuring out what to do when we leave anyway. We can start when we return. I hope his disease cooperates and lets him feel good for this trip. He deserves a whole lot of fun!
Anyway – keep fingers crossed that this will work out. We NEED a vacation!
We are also hoping for warm enough weather to swim since the hotel has a waterpark at it. If it is too cold to swim outside the kids will be heartbroken. Luke thinks we will just have to buy us all wetsuits!
