Buddy Walk 2008

We have never been able to go to the
Buddy Walk in Cleveland because of date conflicts.
It just so happened that the Central Ohio walk was
this weekend and since we were already in Columbus
for the OSU game yesterday, we decided to go today.

Mom, You didn't tell me there would be clowns.
They better not come over here.
I'm watching them out of the corner of my eye.
Yes, I still hate clowns.

No way, we have to go up there?

We're halfway up. I had to stop to catch my breath.

Oh, nice stadium.
What!! You're kidding. There's no game today?

OK, happy now? I did it and my bones are killing me.

Time to go now. I've been waiting all weekend to see TJ.

My Big Brother's New Apartment

Last year TJ lived in a dorm.
This year he is in an apartment on Lane Ave.

I am so excited. We are almost there.
It is the big white building.

I miss TJ so much when he is gone.

I'm telling him about the clowns scaring me at the Buddy Walk.

Nice bedroom TJ.
Look, he has my picture right next to his computer.

TJ is on the 7th floor. He has a great view up here.

That's a new parking garage being built.

Behind it is the Fisher College of Business.

TJ says most of his classes are in that building.

OSU 34 ~ Minnesota 21

I think I must be lucky with my OSU seats.
Do you remember last year we were celebrating
my 18th birthday and my seat was in
row 8, seat 9 and my birthday is 8-9-89?
Well this year I went to game 4 today
and my seat was in row 4, seat 4.

Last year I nearly collapsed from all the walking.

So this year my mom pushed me in my wheelchair

to the gate and then we used a bike lock

and locked it to a railing under a stairwell by our seats.

My mom said that never in a

million, billion, trillion years would she ever have predicted

that the two of us would go to a Buckeyes game together.

I like these new seat cushions this year.

OH yea, here comes the band.

The sun is getting a little bright.

Aunt Dianne, This is for you.

We found your brick right here.

Before the Stroke of Midnight

I'm getting pretty tired now.
We are waiting for our carriage to arrive.
Goodnight Alex.
Goodnight Sarah.
I had fun. Me too.
And with a swoosh of the wand,
a little sparkling fairy dust,
and a sweet kiss on the check,
the magical night comes to a close.

We are patiently waiting for dinner to arrive.

We had chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans.

I'm heading for the bathroom. Hmm...
