One of the benefits of living in a "large metropolitan" is the events that come to you. We are always a stop on major tours and concerts and events. While watching Disney Junior with Ty, a commercial came on about the Doc Mobile touring America.
Ty LOVES Doc Mcstuffins so we promptly went to the address that he just so happened to memorize, to check what city it was coming to. Sure enough, last stop on the list was Phoenix. The only down fall- I work every Saturday at Helen's Hope Chest.
I requested time off and we tried to not remind him that it was coming up, until we were sure that we were going. He has a problem if we tell him that he is doing something then we can't/don't do it. We planned to get there early, had a back up plan, had a back up person to help and off we went.
The wait was pretty minimal but when we got to the front he went off to the "dance party" that was hosted by the local Radio Disney Station. He won a magnetic and love dancing. He was able to get into the Doc Mobile and he had a chance to fix up his Mickey Mouse. Grayson fixed up his dad. He wasn't overly interested in bringing a stuffed animal. And it was SO early he wasn't interested in anything other than the donut and milk offered to him.
It was such a good day. I loved watching them do the stuff they enjoy. It also makes me glad we live in a bigger city to get to enjoy stuff like this.
The line to actually meet Doc was about an hour wait. And despite MUCH cooler temps than we have had all summer it was getting to hot. They didn't have a cover for the people waiting so we didn't say anything to Ty about her coming and left. We were there for a little over and hour and he had a great time.
It was great to have a day off of work to see them and play with them. That afternoon we were join to attend a pumpkin patch with our local Hopekids chapter but Grayson was still asleep when the time came. So we cancelled our reservation and hung out.
It was a good day for all.
