Timmy’s birthday was so awesome minus the fact that he was totally sick day 2 of the celebration. I don’t know that we will be able to top it in the years to come. We went a little overboard but it was worth it. It’s hard to believe he’s 6 and I want to soak up all the magic before he’s grown and too cool for us.
Every year we go away for Timmy’s birthday and usually to Disney. Because Timmy’s birthday is in December we never want him to feel like it is overlooked because it’s so close to Christmas. This year we went to Orlando for the Polar Express train. This is Timmy’s all time favorite movie. It’s safe to say we’ve watched it 100 times in the last 6 years. I can’t say enough good things about it. It was so magical.
All the characters were spot on. Outside there were elves and Christmas light displays. Inside hot chocolate, cookies and a bell for everyone. Santa. The kid who knew everything. The homeless ghost guy. It was just so amazing.
Our vacation didn’t stop there. We took Timmy zip lining and Florida ice skating in our favorite little town with Florida snow and to Sea World. Memaw, Tom, Sam and Nick all cane with us. It would have been perfect if Timmy was feeling better. I don’t know what happened but he got like a 24 hour bug with fever and puking. Even Grace got some special treatment. Aunt Sam took her on a Cinderella horse carriage.
It was a celebration for a prince and he totally deserves it. I love him because he is my first baby and my only son but I also love him because he is such a good person. He loves people and Jesus in a way that I could never have taught him. He really inspires me and Tim to be better people and he doesn’t even know it. He tells me he loves me at least 5 times a day every single day. He makes my life so sweet.
