Saturday June 6th, 2009: First push pass
Our folks flew back to MA late this morning, and Will and I did our own thing for a few hours. He only has a morning therapy session on Saturday and Sundays are a "free day." He had Blackberry time, while I went for a run. We hung out later in the afternoon and drank Starbuck's Mocha Frappuccino's. The big event was our first community outing. A bit scary for the both us; but probably more nerve-wracking for Will since I was the "driver" ;) We ventured across Peachtree Road to have dinner at TGI Fridays. Let me tell you- if you have not been to Atlanta you cannot appreciate Peachtree Road. It is very busy, 3 lanes wide for each way, and you only have 23 seconds to cross the street. The sidewalks are not in very good shape and there is variety of terrain yo have to traverse. It's a bit of a challenge. Also, the Shepherd Center is located smack in the middle of a hill. So no matter which way you go- you have to go up and down a large hill. Great location for a place full of wheelchair bound folks ;) Anyways, we made it and enjoyed a night out. There was also some police action in the parking lot which was mildly entertaining. We headed over to Fresh Market after dinner to check out their supply of gummy candy and of course we did not leave there empty handed. Will's craving for sugary, gummy stuff continues. And a final note...he pooped on his own again this afternoon! Woo hoo!!
