Despite lots of newscasts saying it would be raining all day today, it actually turned out much better than expected and we were able to go to the Special Kids Picnic at Fairytale Town! When I woke up from my morning nap it was about time to leave. We got packed into the car and half way there my Mommy realized we forgot the stroller. Oops! That kept our time there to a minimum because with carrying me, a suction bag and a diaper bag that also contains all of my trach supplies it was a lot to carry! For about an hour we walked around and checked out all the fun fairytale structures. They also had lots of animals - goats, bunnies, ducks, sheep, a donkey, a cow and the three little pigs (okay, they weren't so little - they were pretty big actually). I thought everything was a dog and kept making the sign whenever I would see another animal. Although I was too young to appreciate it, my parents took lots of pictures. There were lots of families and children having a great time. In fact, when I saw the babies my age I would sign "baby". My parents didn't see any other babies with trach's but did see a few with g-tubes like me. Next year I will be walking and much more interested in all they had to offer. This year it was just nice to see all the families and children having fun on such a beautiful day!
