A Disney Story

We're still in Arizona and I plan to share tons of pictures of our Disney adventures when we get home, but I wanted to share one of my favorite stories. As some of you know, Will is not a fan of costumed characters. He is actually very afraid of them. In the picture below this is about as close as he would get to Mickey Mouse. Collin was happy to hold his hand and grab his nose but Will hid behind my leg.

Later that day we went to the Jedi Training Academy show. Unfortunately, Will was not picked to participate but had a front row seat and caught all the action. As part of the show Darth Maul is wandering around looking for recruits for the Dark Side. Several times he was inches from Will, staring us down with some scary colored contacts. Will didn't flinch. I thought it was a little strange that he was afraid of Mickey Mouse but not Darth Maul. We were talking about it later and he explained that he is only afraid of "Fat Head" characters. I had to laugh considering this was coming from a child who had a C/T scan done on his "fat head!"

Will's Travels

One of our goals is to show Will the world outside of our small town in Minnesota. Here is a record of his travels so far:
