|Zack & Sarah with Tigger, Disney World, 1998|
Actually, their favorite thing about their trip to Disney World with Grandma was the wreck they saw on the way their. A horrible accident happened right in front of them & the fire engine pulled up next to their car and they had a front-row view of people being cut out of the cars & the med-flight helicopter landing. The helicopter was so exciting that to this day, you ask them how they liked Disney and they start talking about the helicopter landing near them. They didn't even mind being stuck in a car, on a bridge, in the Florida heat for over four hours.
The kids get their fear of those giant, oversized, walking & waving, stuffed animal things naturally though. I'll admit, they freak me out just a bit. And every day at work, I walk past Planet Snoopy & most days, Lucy is right there, waving & walking and doing her photo op thing with the kids. And I freak out a little, I stare at her to make sure she's not going to 'get me' and I begin laughing at myself and my silly fear. And Lucy sees me smiling and staring & makes a beeline for me so we can high-five each other. Every day. You'd think I'd learn to take another route through the park, or to not make eye contact, or to burst into tears instead of laughing at my fear, but no. No, I just start my day at work all wiggy, knowing that I've come in contact with a giant, oversized, walking & waving stuffed Lucy.
