Working with our friends and colleagues at Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida, Universal Studios and Kennedy Space Center, we were able to come up with a plan that was exactly what Jacob had envisioned.  He and his family made the drive down to beautiful sunny Florida and the magic started.  Meeting SpongeBob at Universal Studios was so special for Jacob.  They posed together for lots of photos and Jacob was amazed to see his favorite TV character right there in front of his very own eyes.  The meeting ended with SpongeBob sending Jacob off on a super-secret important space mission.  Jacob could hardly contain his excitement!  The next day, the space mission commenced.  Jacob and his family arrived at Kennedy Space Center, where Jacob was presented with the challenge.  His job was to find 5 Krabby Patties hidden throughout the center before Plankton could steal the secret recipe.  Time was already running out so he had to get right to work!  Jacob spent hours searching high and low for the Krabby Patties.  Each time he found one, there was a special surprise and a clue to the next one.  Throughout the course of his search, he got to meet a real life astronaut and hear all about space!  He even got to "go to space" when he tried out the space ship simulator.  Jacob saved the Krabby Patty recipe just in time and SpongeBob was so proud!  At the end of the mission, Jacob heard a familiar voice thanking him for his hard work and congratulating him on a job well done.  The fun didn't end there though; Jacob was presented with a custom space suite only for those brave enough to go to space!
