We're Going to Florida!!!

I'm going to take you on my trip. My Grandma & Grandpa Ely live in Florida. I have not been to their condo in a very long time. So we are going to Naples to celebrate my graduation from high school. This is the first time ever I have been to Florida in the summer. I hope it is not too hot.

My whole family is traveling together, so we have lots of suitcases.

My mom and dad have a rule. If all five of us are going on the same trip, then we fly on the same plane. If one of us is not going, then they fly on different planes. They do this just in case something happens, one of them would still be around to take care of us.

Here I am in my wheelchair. I only need it when we have to walk a really long way. I had open heart surgery when I was a baby and had some extra problems. I ended up with a permanent trach for seven years. My lungs are not in great shape, so I have trouble breathing when I walk far.

Here's TJ claiming he's starving. He is always hungry lately.

Good thing we got to the airport early. Now TJ's eating a Cinnabon. Matt's too excited to eat. He just wants to get to the beach to scope out the girls...

Have a great time in Florida! My mom lives in Coleman Florida. She has only met Jonathon once and that makes me sad that she lives so far away. B.T.W. I LOVE Florida.
