Bethany has endured much illness and suffering. When we have unpleasant appointments to attend we try to make the day as much fun as possible as well. This time we combined her doctor visit with road trips, and carousels!
While in Albany for Beth’s Neurology visit, we couldn’t convince her to ride on the carousel at the NYS Museum even though she loves,loves, loves riding on them and had been looking forward to it for days! This was very disappointing for us as she hasn’t had many things in her life that she has been able look forward to. We so desperately want her to have a fun, fulfilled, and happy life!

However, Bethany and I decided to go along for the rainy ride on Saturday evening to bring Rachel to help her friend get ready for her Memorial Day wedding in Syracuse. We thought we’d play it by ear and if Beth seemed like she would be in a happy, cooperative, and obedient mood we might dare to take her into the Destiny USA mall and let her ride the carousel there! As you can see by the pictures our plan was a success! She had a wonderful time riding the carousel seven times! While the operator took a dinner break we did too, but Bethany was obsessed with the video game place and kept making a break for the “Dance, Dance Revolution” game!
