If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (@jamielb_) you probably know that my dad, my niece, & I headed down to Orlando yesterday! What you might not know is why we are here. My dad works for a large specialty pharmacy that specializes in pediatric growth hormone & diabetes. This week at Disney is the Children's with Diabetes Friends for Life conference and my dad's company has a booth at the expo! My dad thought it would be fun to take Carolyne-Grace since her 3rd birthday is next week and she has never been to Disney World. Unfortunately my mom, brother, & Adam weren't able to join so the three of us just came together : )
Ready to go at 5am!
She is the best traveler!
We arrived at our Disney resort around lunch time yesterday. We got settled into our "apartment" as CG calls it and headed to lunch.
After lunch we went to the gift shop and then spent some time playing at the pool before it was time to get ready for the expo.
My dad's company (who I also work for) had a booth set up with a fun game and face painting! I was in charge of all the face painting, which was quite hilarious considering I am awful at painting. My first "customer" of the night asked if I could paint an insulin pump on her face... hahaha, um no.
We had a great time talking to all the kids about what kind of pumps they were on, their journey with diabetes, and what doctors they see.
CG's green guitar.. ha, told you I was awful
My dad is working at the booth again this morning and this afternoon we are headed to the Magic Kingdom : )
