Make-A-Wish: Day 4 Pictures

Today was day 4 of Tucker's amazing wish trip to California. 

We spent most of the day at Universal Studios in Hollywood. 

After an adventurous start to the morning by missing a turn in Los Angeles, we finally made it to Hollywood. Our detour did give us some good views of the Hollywood sign and a couple of other landmarks. 

Tucker enters into the park just as all of the characters were coming out. He met the Minions, Curious George, Woody Woodpecker, Fivel, and Scooby Doo right off the bat. Later he met Shrek, Dora, and Sponge Bob. 

After fighting awful traffic to get back to Orange County, we missed our reservations at Medieval Times for dinner, but we had fun ordering room service instead. 

Make-A-Wish: Day 3 Pictures

This post is a day late because yesterday was such a long day. 

We spent the entire day at the Magic Kingdom of Disneyland. Tucker was pretty much greeted at the gates by Minnir Mouse. We saw quite a few of the characters and rode just about every ride that Tucker was tall enough to ride. 

Tucker got to spend some time in the special Wish Lounge, which is just for Make-A-Wish families and he got special VIP seating at the parade.

Make-A-Wish: Day 2 Pictures

Today was pretty amazing. We laughed at the boys excitement, Dena cried several times from seeing Tucker's joy, and we all had a great time!

Now for some pictures.

Make-A-Wish: Day 1 Pictures

Today we started our journey for Tucker's Make-A-Wish trip to Disneyland. 

We left Dallas at noon and arrived in Los Angeles at 1:00 pacific time. We picked up our rental car, grabbed a quick bite to eat, and made our way to Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel. We were met by our Wish Coordinator and she took care of everything for us. 

After getting everything settled in out room, we headed for the coast to let the boys get their first glimpse of the ocean. After playing in the sand for a bit, we met one of my fraternity brothers and his family for dinner on the Balboa Pier. 

It was a very long day and the boys were asleep before leaving the beach. 

Now for some pictures. We will update in more detail after we get home.
