Friday Adventures

Seeing as I have to "check email" anyhow, I, Brad, am online and am able to give a brief update.

Today we went to Universal Studios Islands of Adventure. The park is split into 5 themed islands and everyone had a great time. The first, "Suess Landing" was a favorite. The best part once again was the amazing treatment by the staff. Once they see that Wish Button, they jump into action. If it is a ride, they have a personal escort take us to the front of the line through back doors and hallways. They are also great with special meetings with all of the characters from "Cat in the Hat" to "Spiderman" we met them all in a place that is out of the public chaos.

Back at Give Kids the World, tonight was the pirates and princesses party. It is another street party with many activities and plenty of dancing ending off with a corontation of all the kids on stage. Last night was Christmas with a full turkey dinner, followed by Santa (and gifts galore donated by Hasbro) and a parade to end the night. Tomorrow is a surprise birthday party for the Mayor.

Continued prayers going up for all of you! I think Universal is the best for "star" treatment for wish kids! Thanks for taking the time to update us- I sure hope Noah is doing better!
