In November our sweet Andon turned 8. We wanted to do something totally different for him this year.
We got a babysitter for Adelyn and took him to Universal Studios Islands of Adventure for the day. We had a blast running through the park jumping on any ride he wanted to (except the big roller coasters, he was still 2 in. too short..bummer).
We hung out in the arcade for an hour or so playing shooting games and motorcycle riding games. Waited in line to meet the real spider man. And went on one of the scariest rides I have ever been on... Tower of Terror!!! I had never been on it before and neither had Andon so we didn't know what to expect but as soon as they fastened my seat belt and the floor dropped out I had a sinking feeling. Sure enough, it shoots you straight into the air and once you get to the top you have that terrible feeling in your stomach.. OHHH I hate that feeling!! I looked through the arm restraint to see Andon's face and that made it worse! Poor guy was so scared, as soon as we hit the ground we both said we'd never do it again!
We filled up on pizza, candy, soda and popcorn which equals perfection to my guy!
The day was long and full and Andon loved every bit of turning 8!!
We certainly missed our girl but it was nice to spend the day focused on him. :)
