The big TRIP!!!

So, we buckled down and decided that we are going to SLC with my family this weekend. We will leave in the morning. On our agenda is... the zoo, the Temple open house, Welfare Square, the Living Aquarium, the Ronald McDonald House, and what ever other adventures that allow wheelchairs!!! Our friends, Jeff and Chanieca Moss let us borrow a wheelchair that one of their grandparents had, so that way, any of the things we need to do, we can just throw Randy in it and not have to worry about hurting him!!! He's not worried about the drive and he's slept the last 2 nights in our bed and he's done ok. We tested him this week with walking around the mall and at Wal-mart. We went to the mall first and it was ok. The next day we walked around Wal-mart and that was a little too much for him, so I think he'll be cruisin in the wheelchair this weekend!!! I'm so glad we have it. Is it convenient? Not really, it's heavy and bulky. Is it the only way he can go? YEP!!! So, it's a good thing!!! I know we'll have a good time and if it ends up being too much for Randy, we'll just lock him in the car!!! Just kidding!!!

Today Randy went to a chiropractor (pronounced: CRACK-errr-BACK-errr). He was impressed that Randy's spine wasn't messed up. He's been complaining of a knot between his shoulder blades. After the doctor finished the work up on Randy, I wondered if he was glad he went or not. He was grunting and groaning when the doctor was trying to loosen up the tight muscles in his back. Randy has a tight back like his dad, so it was kinda funny seeing this poor chiropractor trying to loosen him up!!! He goes back on Monday.

Anyhoo, that's what's up for us right now!!! Hopefully we'll have a fun time this weekend and make some fun memories for our kids!!! Blog ya later!!!

Wow, that sounds like a schedule that would fill a non handicapped challenged family. I hope you have a great time. The weather was great when we were up there. That alone can boost a spirit.

Hope you have a great time! We went to the Aquarium this year and loved it. Hope Randy does alright. Take care.
