I love Facebook. I was scrolling down the Illinois Rett Family Page and came across something another Illinois family had posted. Starved Rock, which is an Illinois State Park, was offering free boat rides on the Illinois River to kids with disabilities. We decided to venture out (about a two hour drive) with all the girlies and spend the day at the park. We all had to wear life preservers, even Olivia. Here is super dad keeping her asleep so she didn't freak out.
After the ride we climbed to the top of Starved Rock which was a lot of fun. You might be wondering how we lugged three small kids to the top.
We got plenty of "Wow, you've got your hands full" comments and other stares but we had such a great time.
