Well, this is where things went down for me. The morning started out great. The kids looked so cute in their matching outfits.
On the way to Epcot, Brooks got called with a work emergency. It is hard to handle emergencies when you aren't even in the same state! A high was that when we got there, we were second in line to meet Joy and Sadness! The boys love the movie Inside Out and were so excited to meet them. (I cry every time I look at these! I love Woody's expressions.)
It was an awesome moment. It was getting really hot (to me) and Mae Stanley was melting so we went to the Baby Center for a feeding. (It only took me four hours to find it.) The boys went with Brooks and my parents to ride a ride. Then we met up to ride Nemo. I didn't know if it was the heat or that I was worried about Brooks, but I started to feel sick. We got a coke to see if it would help (it didn't), but I knew we had a FastPass to meet Mickey and Friends, so I was insisting that we stay. We walked around some, and I was trying to keep it together for another two hours. Then, my "Disney Miracle" happened. Randomly, there was Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto for pictures! With no line! We happily met each one, and I felt less guilty about leaving knowing they saw Mickey and Friends.
Woody stayed with my parents, but Brooks, Gaines, Mae Stanley and I headed back a little before lunch. I thought I could take a nap and feel better, but when I woke up, I realized that I had a stomach virus/food poisoning. It felt like a stomach virus, but luckily, no one else got it! I spent the next 30 ish hours in bed. Whomp whomp.
Thank you to my incredible husband and parents for helping with the kids. It is the worst to be in the happiest place on earth and can't leave the bed. I don't know what I would have done without them.
