DD(18) and I made the three guys of the family go on Small World with us, lol. We had just gotten off Indiana Jones and Matterhorn, so it probably wasn't up to my 8 year olds speed.

Disneyland and California Adventure are $92.00 each. We did both parks in two days, so we ended up just buying the cheapest SoCal Passport, it wasn't much more and we can take the kids again in the next year. I really want to go back at Christmas.

We didn't do the FastPasses for any of the rides. The lines weren't that long except for a 90 minutes wait for the new racing car ride in CarsLand and the Fastpasses were gone by 10:30am for that ride.

That's just mean.

I used to live across the street and hang out at the hotel and Disneyland teasing tourists and getting into the hotel's pool for free. Ahhh, those were the days!

Oh Hambone, I am so sorry. I just saw your posts. Truly heartbreaking!

One of the things I read about when we lost our son was that so often people don't think about the grandparents. They're hurting too, and they really feel for their kids.

Sending you thoughts and prayers.

I want to share this with you... This image was taken the day that Adam was born. That's Adam's mom holding Adam... The lady on the right is my MIL... Adams Great-gradmother. And the little girl in the middle is Lillie, Adams big sister.

Lillie asked to say a few words at Adams funeral. She's 10 and she spoke with out notes and unrehearsed. She started out, "I want to tell you about my brother, Adam." She went on to talk about how he smiled with his whole body, she described how he laughed and how he cackled when she rubed her nose on a "special rib". She talked about what Adam liked and his favorite toys, songs and TV show... and how they played the theme song over and over he'd just smile.... elievable... Then she said, "I want to pray now." and she prayed that God would teach Adam how to crawl, walk, and run... and talk. That there would be plenty of kids for him to play with and told her mom to not be sad because God was holding Adam tight in his arms.... I wish I could remember more of what she said.

I couldn't have done as good of a job as Lillie did. And I certainly couldn't have held it together like Lillie did.

I do believe that God was talking to Adam's mom.... through Lillie.

It was simple yet so powerful.

It was a tear jerker. I'm tearing up right now thinking about.

Thursday was a tough day.

Please continue to pray for Mike, Mary and Lillie...

There is NO love like a mother's love for her child. And there is no grief like the grief over losing a child. I wish this on no one.

Another image of Lillie.

You are so right Larry.. It is a double heartache for Grandparents.

First, you are grieving for the loss of a grand child... But, just as devastating, is the pain, I don't know how to word this... it's the agony you feel for your child who is suffering. That baby is no longer in pain....but you child is hurting bad... And it's a hurt that you can't really fix.

As you get older.. and you've had, parents and friends and especially friends parents passing away... you come to realize that dying is part of life. It happens.

But, losing a child is a whole different ball game. You expect parents and friends to pass away...

And those Sunday School answers just aren't much comfort to a parent who has lost a child.

This is the kind of loss that you never really get over. BUT, things will get better in time.

I know there are no words anyone can say Hambone, I'm so sorry, it's a tragedy and my heart goes out to you and your family.

....and not a dry eye in the house... yeah, not sure how she got through that.

At a loss for words Hambone, really....there is nothing I hate more in life than tragedies like this. Is there anything more UNFAIR ... If there is a purpose... I just don't like it....or agree with it...

I was just reading today at the Eye Doc's in a People's magazine, how Pastor Rick Warren's 27 yr old son committed suicide Rick, Kay Warren Kept Son's Mental Illness Private for Sake of His Dignity, Grieving Couple Tells Piers Morgan

It seems He & his wife has come forth ...with their sons/ the families private pain....and will be advocates for more understanding of those who struggle with severe depression (I know unrelated to Williams Syndrome disease) but yet another awful tragedy for a family to bare....this came to mind while looking upon your families happy faces of years past..with Adam's birth... when the future seemed so bright & promising.

Very strong little girl that Lillie is...and will be.

I've never been able to get up and talk at a funeral before. I always started getting choked up and couldn't. This time was different. I think it was that I felt it was my obligation. That I owed it to my son to do this, and do it well.

I didn't do it without notes, but I might have. I thought about it for the couple of weeks I had, and the day before I banged out three pages to read. I was able to make it through OK.

My dad then got up unrehearsed once I invited others up and did an unbelievable job.

I have bangs for the first time in four years. It's weird.
