Seeing the President

Here are some pics from Levi and I seeing Obama speak!

We waited in line for 4 hours to get tickets.
The night before, I made him a shirt to wear:

 Then Sunday, we arrived at 4am to FIT.

At 6:30am Levi spotted a superhero badge and had to have it:

He found some other entertainment too:

The lake (large pond maybe?)

Punching Politicians:

At 8:30 they opened their doors. The helicopters flew over:

Shortly after Levi was interviewed/photographed for Florida Today

We got inside the building at maybe 9:30 or so, not really sure.  It was basically a high school size gym, with a small thing of bleachers on one side, and the media platform taking up 1/4 of it at the back and a big stage at the front - so REALLY small considering they had 3,000 tickets given out, apparently lots of people didn't get in and some were behind the media platform, so they couldn't see a thing! We were about 12 rows back or so from the podium

 Levi's view, note the 3 butts at face level.

In the excitement, this lady must have forgotten her pants!

 Seriously, we were in there for hours and bored and not able to move even 1 step in any direction, so this was entertainment while we waited. We ended up next to a group of 6 guys that were the 'homosexuals for Obama" and they were great with putting up with Levi doing endless fancy high fives and talking his head off.

 Being silly waiting:

And at 11:45, he showed up. Apparently he had been out to breakfast in Cocoa Village at one of my favorite places to eat (they are good with Levi's allergies, have vegetarian options and the food is good!) I think Levi took all of those pics!

After: (12:45)

 I took him to Ben and Jerry's afterwards, they have mango sorbet that he can actually eat and they always open a new carton and get a new scoop for him! It was a looong day but a great experience for us both.
