The kids got light sabers at the Fantasmic show because my in-laws spoil them rotten. They waved them around before the show started, but once it began I ended up holding Brandon. He didn't like the fireworks too much, so I had to comfort him. I didn't get any photos of the fireworks, but I did get some good cuddles so I'm calling it a win.
Basic Grey's Aurora collection was absolutely perfect for the colors in my pictures. My friend Stephanie gave it to me, and I'm so glad she did because it saved me from having to buy another collection with purple in it. This layout was inspired by a PageMaps sketch.
I'm a big fan of scrapping my real life, and some of the moments aren't too upbeat. Many of you know that I'm the parent of three kids with special needs and they keep me busy. Brandon's autism makes it easy for him to be overwhelmed by loud noises and public places, but we try not to let that change the quality of his life. We bring him everywhere, and if a meltdown occurs we deal with it. I don't think he should miss out on experiences due to autism. He did very well in Disney. In fact, he only got seriously upset twice. He went from happy to upset in a few minutes when we were waiting in a very large line to get into the Lion King show. Ronnie and I comforted him, and he was able to calm down and enjoy the show. Since it's such a big part of our life and his... I decided to scrapbook the pictures I took.
