Yesterday was a great day! So often on this blog I forget to include things other than boring, dry medical updates. Despite our daily chaos, Val, Sammy and I manage to have a good time. My older sister talked us into meeting her at a pumpkin patch yesterday. We then headed to her house for some good food and pumpkin carving. Samantha loves spending time with her cousins, and she had a great day. She even managed to do a few "Firsts" including pumpkin picking, pumpkin carving, a non-hay hay ride, and a pony ride.
Here are some pictures from our amazing day!
The pony ride! (Very afraid but she hung in there!)
The wagon ride! Apparently the rides don't always include actual hay anymore, which was wonderful. My guess is that trachs and lots of kids/hay in close quarters would not be a good mix. So, Samantha was able to enjoy the ride with her cousins. :)
Picking pumpkins with her cousins, and yes, Sammy lifted her very own pumpkin and still stayed upright!
Always nice to get all three of is in the same picture...
Pumpkin carving at Aunt Shannon's and Uncle Angelo's!
The finished product! To be honest, Sammy's uncle was actually the one that carved it. Neither Val or I have the skills to do such a top-notch job.
A special thanks to my sister and her husband for hosting such a wonderful day!
Until next time,
