Dave took off Wed-Fri for us to do some fun things together as a fam. Wednesday, we visited a lake that our neighbors were staying at. Both girls went tubing even in the pouring rain. Brave little souls.
On Thursday, we went to Kings Island where both girls showed even more spirit by riding rides they have never conquered before!
Olivia on the Drop Zone.This is the Drop Zone. You go up one billion stories at least, and then the whole dang things falls in one big whoosh to the bottom. Ok, that is how it seemed to Shelby and I as we watched Dave and Olivia do this. CRAZY.Here in seat 7 are Dave and Shelby on the Runaway Reptar. Again, having Shelby out of my sight had my heart in my chest. When they finally came around the final bend, Olivia shouted: she's smiling, she's smiling!
And Friday, we headed to Coney Island for the first true sunny day, which we planned to spend swimming and riding water slides.
As I write this, it still feels very unbelievable. This week will move forward with sadness, a memorial service, and hopefully coping and healing.Pin It
