Alan (who’s been away since 6 July) came for a visit Wednesday afternoon. We hung out on Thursday and all went to Disney on Friday, then visited with Brandie and Keith (and their new puppies, and their old kitty lol) on Saturday. He flew out this morning. He should be back sometime in November ….. His goings suck, but the coming home is always nice. He spent a ton of quality time with Xander and Xander was okay with him leaving (he’s acting up a little, but he’s bored …). Xander made Alan hug him about a million times last night and said “I love you” and “I’ll miss you” to him a few more. It’s sad … but, he’s handling it okay.
Disney was AWESOME – took lots of photos. Xander had a blast and was able to ride a bunch of rides and even rode his very first roller coaster (he just made the height quota!) … I didn’t get to ride Space Mountain, and the Haunted Manse was CLOSED FOR THE SUMMER (I almost melted away into the pavement when I came upon that!!) but it was fun just seeing how much fun Xander was having!
