Day 3

After another night of very little sleep and a lot of screaming - we spent the night just waiting for the front desk to call and escort us to the door, but the call never came.
We got up that morning and drove down to the pier. Ryan left us there while he went to more meetings. The kids and I had a lot of fun down there. Gage continued to feel crappy and did not feel one bit shy about letting everyone know just how badly he felt. But we continued on. We spent the morning at the aquarium and the boys especially loved the sharks, they got to touch starfish and sting rays and all sorts of fun things. We ate at the Rainforest Cafe, Gage ate all his lunch, with some assistance - it was a scoop of ice cream! You know he is sick when you have to make him eat ice cream.
Again, McCall was very pleasant. I think I could travel with here anywhere!

This was about as pleasant as the boy got. But he was miserable and had no sleep or food, I think I would have been grumpy as well. Turns out he lost 3 pounds, 10% of his body weight! This was right after we lost Gage for a few minutes, I literally turned around to get a water from a machine and he was gone. We ran into the closest door, an arcade figuring he would for sure be in there. But no luck, he was no where to be found, I was terrified. I ran back out to the water machine and there he was standing there as if nothing had happened. He had ducked inside a photo booth and waited out my panicked cry's for him. I've never been so relieved and angry at the same time!

Another cool thing we saw were old war ships and submarines, the boys enjoyed them. Day 3 was successful, we met back up with Ryan that evening, ate dinner and slept a little bit better that night, at least 4 hours I think!

Looks like an epoch trip. I'm sure it is one that your kids will remember forever.
