I was extremely excited that this trip was finally here but also very nervous about this being the 1st time for either of the boys flying! Thankfully we were able to book the same flight w/ the Camengas, so all 4 of the kids were able to fly for the 1st time together!
Ready for take off!
They all figured out that they could hitch rides on our carry-on bags, and thought it was tons of fun!
Tonya was the of my Facebook friend I ran into when we arrived at the hotel.
Soon after we got settled into our room we ventured out to grab some dinner & to meet up with everyone for the fireworks.
Here’s the “3 amigos”!
I swear this kid can find a chain anywhere!!!
A couple of nice firemen stopped to show all of the kids their cool “little fire truck” which Ethan informed us that “actually it’s a John Deere gator with emergency lights on it”! And they let all of the kids try on a helmet & pretend they were driving the “little fire truck”.
Amy Roloff happened to come walking by while we were hanging out waiting for the fireworks to start. Ethan wanted to say hi to her, but I dont think she noticed him. I couldnt hear what he tried to say to her but I can imagine it was something like “Hey. . . . . Amy!”
I’m not sure what building this is but it looked pretty cool at night lit up. I think this picture of it came out really cool, looks almost like a spooky castle.
Me & my lil Monkey Man!
The fireworks display was amazing! I actually liked it better than the ones we saw last year in NYC. Unfortunately they were very loud & all of the kids (except Ethan) were covering their ears. Funny part is over 1/2 of them had ear plugs in too! It was really nice getting to hang out with Kim, Preston, Trish & Caden again! To finally meet Jamie & sweet lil Caty! And Jessica w/ adorable lil baby Avery!
