Saturday June 20th, 2009: Visit from friends
Will's buddies Brett, Tim, and Eranne flew down from the Cape this morning. All I can say is that my cheeks hurt from all the laughing we did this afternoon! We loaded Will and his chair up in my car (I think it took about 30 minutes to do that before we even left the parking garage) and then we were off to the ESPN Zone for lunch. The top floor of the ESPN Zone is all games and we ended up staying there, taking turns on a lot of the games. I will be uploading videos and pictures this coming week. It was a riot! Will had a good time laughing at his friends (and me) trying to play some of these games. One of the games was a horse race, and you had to sit on the small plastics horses and ride them like a jockey. Hysterical. After the ESPN Zone, we went back to Shepherd where Will cracked open the can of boiled peanuts- disgusting. (Sorry Kelly C.) And then the boys thought it would be fun if they were all in wheelchairs, so Tim and Brett got hold of some of the 350 lb. power chairs that quadriplegics use and they all went tearing around the floor. At one point, someone came to shut the door to Will's room because it was getting a little rowdy. It was a really fun afternoon. Tomorrow, we are hoping to get to the aquarium which is supposed to be very impressive. Will & I were also very amazed to hear all the details of the upcoming fundraiser. It sounds like it is going to be AWESOME! And....we got to see the t-shirts that have been made ....and they are even more AWESOME!! We are ever so grateful of all the support and energy that has been constantly flowing our way. There are a lot of good people in this world.
