Join us on the Adventures of Boy Wonder, 7 years old, as he overcomes the challenges he faces due to Autism. The other characters in our cast include me, you can call me J, THE DIVA who is 4 and Sweet Baby Girl who is 3 years old. It's our version of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. Fasten your seat belts.
So Friday afternoon, I loaded Solange up and we headed out.
Solange called shotgun but I thought driving up the highway with a giant metal chicken in the front seat would get me pulled over. So it was the trunk for him.
And we were off to visit friends. Traffic got me where we were going way later then I intended. Solange was not thrilled with his excessive time in the trunk. There was some angry clucking coming from the back of the truck. Finally we arrived at our destination. It was time for a little Knock Knock MoFo.
The front door was opened and Solange was greeted with laughter from Jess, Luau, Katie and Brooke.
I had a wonderful weekend with all of them. We went to an autism event and I got to see one of my favorite people ever.
Jersey & Texas together again.
I collected some shells for DIVA and Sweet Baby Girl.
And saw some beautiful views.
And then Sunday morning I got to run with the Team Up with Autism Speaks Boston team with Luau. I showed them how we run Jersey style. Oh you want to donate?? CLICK HERE
Then our running buddy Doug who couldn't make the training run came looking for us. He asked Luau where I was. Luau told Doug she's up a bit she's wearing.... forget it you'll know it when you see her. He found me alright.
Doug, Me & Luau
We met up with the rest of the group for a picture.
I had a wonderful weekend with friends. It was a whirlwind but I really enjoyed it.
I had some very interesting conversations with Katie. To see her interact with Brooke and watch her really get her sister is a beautiful thing. I am beginning to see it in my own girls with Boy Wonder. Katie and Brooke give me hope that the kind of relationship I would like my girls to have with their brother is a very real possibility.
And then after a quick picture with Jess and Solange it was time to hit the road. My babies were on a plane and headed home. Back to reality.
