Owen's wish was to swim with the dolphin's ! He LOVES the water , he tells everyone how he was born to swim just like a fish! So when The Make~A~Wish foundation asked what his wish was , right off the bat he said to swim with the dolphin's!! We've been to Florida a few times and seen dolphin in the wild . Owen loves the beach and the sand between his toes :-]. On June 3 2008 , his wish came true !
A limo took us to the air port and it was are very first time on a plane , except for Jay. The boys and I were a little nervous but also VERY excited. Soon we found are self's in Florida. First we went to Sea World and got to go on a Grand Tour , had lunch with Shammoo , fed the Dolphin's ,Owen's favorite part.
The next day was the Best Day Ever , Owen's wish. We went to Discovery Cove!
Here is were Owen got to swim with the beautiful dolphin's , he was happy as a clam!!
We also went snorkeling with the sting ray and other sea creatures. Owen even took a little nap under the palm trees in a hammock. It was so wonderful to see the excitement in his little face after everything he had gone through.
To top off the trip we were surprised with passes to Disney! The boys were thrilled , you see we have been to Florida many times but never had enough money to take the kids to Disney. We all had a wonderful time , Thank You Make~A~Wish
