The great outdoors... Day 199 30MAY09

Joshua managed to get around quite a bit today. He spent the morning at home. Around noon he went over to visit with Grandma and Grandpa Gandy and my sister Marcia who is visiting along with Aaron from Ohio. We had a nice visit with lunch and even five different flavors of ice cream to choose from. Marcia doesn't get to come down as often as we would like so it was a treat to be able to spend some time with her.

After a little rest at home Joshua and Jarrod headed over to Grandma and Pa Peters for dinner and a camp out. Jarrod and Pa put up the largest tent any of us have ever seen. We have taken it camping several times and affectionately dubbed it "Taj ma Tent". Cousins Taylor and Avery came over to join in the camping party. All the adults were taking bets on how long the kids would actually sleep in the tent. I'll have the results tomorrow so check back. Joshua is much improved over earlier this week. He has a lot more energy and is playing and having a good time. It is great to see him so active and not depressed or lethargic. There have been far too few good days over the last six months. When we get them it is definitely cause to celebrate. As an added benefit Renee and I got to spend the evening quietly alone at home which is a pretty rare thing indeed.

Good Morning Snuggle Monkey,

Oh, Happy Days!!!! I am so happy you are feeling better and have more energy. Sounds like you have had a whirlwind time with Marcia's visit and the camp out. I love hearing this kind of news almost as much as you love living it. Glad Mom and Dad got a quiet evening at home. Here's looking for many more happy days.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
