River Pics

Is this a picture of a happy little girl, or what?

I know there are some people who would freak out if they saw a trached child anywhere near water.  But, how in the world could I deny her this happiness and experience???  Especially before a major heart surgery.  Sometimes, you just gotta live life to the fullest!

Murphy went tubing for the first time ever.  He loved it.  Which was kinda surprising considering he's not much of a risk taker!

It is hard to have a child that you can't let in the water.  She would love it so much!

So, we let her drive.  Okay, not really.  But she was happy anyway.

Cooper was having fun, too.  You just can't tell in this particular photo.  He wanted to be in the water the whole time.  He is such a fish!  That's Tom in the background.

Is this a picture of a happy guy, or what?

He's happy because he's married to me.  It has nothing to do with him getting to drive a boat.

Thank you to Brandy and Joe for taking us out for a great day!

That looks like so much fun! I don't have experience with a trach, but I think you are doing the BEST for Harlie! You are letting her enjoy the fun with the family, and keeping her safe at the same time. Good job! She looks like she's having a blast!

I had to mark ha-ha for your comment about Tom driving the boat. LOL.

It is hard with water, but you are so right as long as you try to be as cautious as possible it is your decision. You couldn't very well leave her sitting on the shore now could you?

Absolutely agree that you need to live life to the fullest! Harley looks absolutely full of joy and that is so good for both of you :-)

Love that first picture of Harlie. I'm so glad you were able to get out and have some fun before her big surgery.
