Yellowstone, Skating, Aqua Shoes & Pony Rides

We celebrated the 4th of July in Yellowstone.  The paved paths make it a great destination for wheelchairs.  The only time we left the paved area was to swim in the Firehole River.  I carried Davey down the short but steep path and biffed it, lesson learned.  We stayed at the Old Faithful Inn which provided scenic views of the geyser from our bedroom and also our favorite past time...searching for the ghosts that haunt the hotel such as the Headless Bride.  The scariest sight was Maggie's face after she was bitten by a few blood thirsty mosquitoes.  It swelled up and required a trip to the clinic for medication.  Our trip was a slow paced, beautiful vacation.

Next up was Davey's seventh birthday.  He invited a few friends to join him at Classic Skate for a night of grooving at the rink.  While the other kids got tired, injured, thirsty, or bored, Davey could "skate" all night.  He is lucky to have such good friends!  I can't believe it's been seven years sin…
