Today isn't technically day 1 since we're not flying out until tomorrow but Make a Wish did give us a hotel stay before we left so I'm considering this day one! I want to make sure to journal each day so this seems like a good way to remember everything we did!
We got up bright and early for the 4 hour drive to Minneapolis. The hotel water park was only open from 10-1pm so we wanted to get in right away. We arrived just in time for it to open and the kids had a blast.
We spent about 2 hours in the water park and then drove over to Mall of America(which is directly across from our hotel) and had lunch at Bubba Gump's shrimp co. We stopped at the Disney store so Kaydence could pick out a princess dress to wear to Magic Kingdom. We'd found one for Kylie at a thrift store a few days earlier. Emeric didn't seem to mind that he didn't get a prince outfit. ;)
After a couple hours at Mall of America we headed back to our hotel. The kids were bummed because the arcade was closed but they were all so tired that hanging out in the room seemed fine with us!
Right now we're waiting for our pizza we ordered and then plan on getting the kids in bed early! Our limo is set to arrive at 6am!
