Day Two...

... of our amazing trip was spent at Hollywood Studios.

This little baby was a LIFE SAVER for us both here and our last day when we went to Magic Kingdom.  It's not written anywhere on any Disney website, map, information, etc but is available for certain special needs.  I plan on writing a whole separate blog post on this for those of you reading who would benefit from this knowledge as we did!

Braeden does not really do "rides" like most kids his age, but we did have to go to the Honey I Shrunk the Kids play set THREE TIMES! :)

Our lunch was very fun at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater!  A place we had always heard about but had never been to!

Since we were on the dining plan, each meal came with dessert.  This was my dessert here... the Sci-Fi Candy Bar... Amazing!  I think I ate MAYBE three bites and couldn't do any more it was so RICH!  But Braeden helped out!

We planned on doing three shows during the day: the Lights, Motors, Action Stunt Show, Beauty and the Beast live show, and the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular.  Unfortunately it rained off and on starting around in the afternoon and dampened some of the plans.  The car stunt show was great and we saw it all with no problem.  Beauty and the Beast got through one song before stopping due to weather.  And Indy was able to do the first of three "scenes" since the final two are outdoors.

But the Car show was definitely a fave so I'm glad we got to it!

Here's my dessert from dinner: a chocolate capuccino cupcake to die for!  I think I had two bites of this one! :)

One of his favorite things from the day was seeing "THE" Power Rangers suit at the Planet Hollywood store!

And I HAD to get him to stay for Fantasmic which is one of my all-time favorites!  I had to do a little bribing as it was a long day for him, but he was glad in the end that he went! :)

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
