Another Day for the Trachies!

We had another great time getting together with our trach buddies today. We wanted to get the kids together one more time before respiratory illness season sets in, which is October through April. Unfortunately we were missing one very important Trachie, our friend Faith. Sad to say that she already has a respiratory illness she is trying to get over so she couldn't make it. But her sweet mommy, Jen, came to our picnic, which was awesome. After lunch it was time to head into the Children's Museum where the kiddos had fun coloring and painting, sitting in boats, climbing trees, and climbing on tables! Here are a few pics from our fun day:

Don't rock the boat!

Who Dat?!?!

On a different note, Marissa had a major breakthrough in Occupational Therapy last week. See for yourselves:

She can play in the grass now!! And no, I did not lock us out of the house... lesson learned!!

Oh, by the way...

She can stand much longer than this, she just decides she doesn't want to. Toddler attitude!! The big point of this video is the "Dada". Ain't it sweet?

We had so much fun today! It was great to get to know you guys more today. Can't wait till our next trip, even if it's only the parents that go. I promise to keep in touch! Hope you guys have a great week!

Fun times it seems! I'm sorry to hear Faith wasn't able to come. Tell Jen and Brian that I will be praying for her.

I love these videos! They are so much fun! I cry every time I see them! She has made great progress over the last few months as well as the two of you!

I'm glad to see you take adventures away from the house! And good job on learning the lesson! No more locking yourself out of the house!

Love you!

She is just so darn cute! I'm glad you guys and Marissa are getting some social interaction. And the progress with the grass! WOW! That's cool! I hope Faith will recover quickly and have a good winter season as well as Marissa and the other "trachies". Love you guys...Nana
