A Little Sunshine...

Last night Madison had a spa hour at “la ti da” Salon here in the village. She got a hand massage and manicure along with some relaxation time in the massage chair – so cute! We then headed over to the jungle theater for an improv comedy show, which Madison got to go up on stage and be a star!

Today we headed out to Universal Studios and actually saw the sun for about four hours! We met lots of fun characters and got to ride some really cool rides. Gavin was able to go on a few rides with his wheelchair, which just made his day! We really enjoyed Dr. Suessville and seeing all the sites while walking the streets of Universal Studios.

I just dropped Madison off at kids night out and tonight is “Village Idol” where I think Madison might once again be up on stage – she likes being the center of attention – who would have known?!

The kids look like they are so happy! (Mom and Dad too).
