Look What I Found

After having been inspired by this post from Gwendolyn's family, I went in search of a Special Needs-accessible park. And guess what: yes, even in East Texas, we have one. Not a huge one, mind you, but it had SWINGS! Dakin really enjoyed it, and we will be going back!

This park was helped into reality by Neil McCoy, a country artist who lives in Longview. I went looking for the website about the park but of course can't find it, but Neil is a wonderful force for good in East Texas. He makes dreams come true--he certainly did for us with these swings. Look at how big and comfy they are! Dakin doesn't have to worry about holding himself up in them. He doesn't look it (the sun was in his eyes) but he enjoyed swinging very much!

Yeah!!!!!! He did look happy in that swing!!!!

BTW, I just bought a Superman embroidery file. Thinking of putting it on a royal blue shirt and attaching (detachable of course) red cape to go with it.

He'll always be my Superman!
