In 2015, Namine was granted a wish by Make A Wish to meet Disney princesses. She received her very own Belle princess dress; we flew to Florida (but drove back home) and stayed in the Give Kids The World Village. We visited Sea World, the dolphins Winter and Hope, Disney World, and Gatorland.

Namine’s wish

We found out not too long ago that Namine qualifies for Make A Wish.

Make A Wish: Disney World

As the saying goes, I'm going to need a vacation after this vacation. That's not a bad thing, though! Namine's first time at Disney World was tiring, but magical.

We spent our last full day here in Florida visiting the last place on Namine's wish list: Gatorland.

Make A Wish: the trip home

We started on our trek home today. Since we're driving back, and not flying, it's going to take three days, instead of three hours.

The best part

Many people have asked me what the best part of our Make A Wish vacation was. I jokingly answer that it was when Belle complimented me on how I did Namine's hair.
