An Outing

Yesterday I took Dad for a ride. We got him into the car, which is quite a task, but he loves to go for rides. I asked him where he wanted to go, and he said that St. Mary's reservoir was really nice. So off we went. I just had Nicole with me for the day and she loved just playing in the water and having a little time alone, away from her brothers. It was a special day. We were able to help Dad onto the picnic table bench where he sat and enjoyed the scenery for a while. Living in a facility and having to rely on others for all your needs is very hard for him but he never complains and has a very good spirit about it all.
