A Magical Day for all of us… Adrian's Wish of having a playroom makeover has finally come true! The first surprise started off with a limousine waiting outside our house to take Papa and Adrian for a day at the Wonderland while the IKEA crew showed up later for the makeover.

Though we've seen the floor plan of the layout, they wouldn't let us come down for a peek until the moment…. The Playroom was revealed to Adrian promptly at 4pm. Oh boy, was Adrian surprised!!!! The playroom is so colourful that it incorporates everything we had asked for (Adrian mentioned he likes red, rainbow colors. We wanted plenty of storage and shelves, an area for floor play and some frames for his artwork etc.). Adrian was a bit shocked afterwards and it sure takes time for all of us to soak it all in. It’s absolutely beautiful!

The MAW Slogan says "We grant wishes to Children with life threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy." We truly appreciate the effort and hard work from Make-A-Wish for making this happen, not to mention the planning and generosity of IKEA Canada & Sony Canada. We wish Adrian remain healthy and enjoy his playroom in the years to come!!

The Limo came to pick Adrian up for a day at Wonderland.

We received the floor plan from IKEA over the weekend. In preparation for the Wish Day next week, we followed the designer’s direction to paint one of the Playroom walls - RED (Adrian’s favourite colour!).

Aug 6 - 12, 2011

We did a road trip to Rochester, New Jersey & New York City in a week with the grannies. Even though the trip was not as kids oriented, Adrian enjoyed the opportunity of staying in various hotels during the trip. My fault for overlooking the opening hours for the Museum of Play in Rochester, that’ll give us an excuse to come visit later.
