Owen's Make a Wish trip was great~I am so thankful that we were able to go while he was still feeling well. He got to meet the Power Rangers, which was his wish. It was pretty incredible to see him with them. He was very excited, and was happy that the Pink ranger spent the most time with him!
He was also able to meet Spiderman, which he was also extremely excited about. While the others were waiting to ride some roller coaster at Island of Adventure at Universal Studios, I took Owen to look for characters, which were the highlight of the trip for him. We walked down around the part where the Marvel character rides were, and didn't see any characters. As I was walking back with him to the spot we were going to meet everyone, we saw a sign that said "Meet Spiderman this Way" with an arrow pointing toward the back of a store. I thought for sure that he would not be there because there was no line of people at all, but we walked back anyway. Sure enough, in his crouching Spiderman position, there he was! The best part is Spiderman actually talked to him (the majority of characters did not speak at all, even the Power Rangers). As we were approaching I said, "Oh my gosh, Owen! Look! It's Spiderman!" and Spiderman said, "Hey Owen! I heard you were here~I've been waiting for you!" He went on to spend about 10 minutes with him. He made Owen a superhero and told him that he was so brave and that he saw Venom run the other way when he heard that Owen was there. We had our picture taken with him-. Spiderman even carried Owen to his stroller!
Will write more about the trip soon. Take care!
