Family Fun Day

I am happy, thrilled, and generally ecstatic to report that Michael is finally well on his way back to good health.  After another visit early last week with the pulmonary specialist who decided that an eight-day course of Prednisone was the next logical step in attempting to put Michael back on the road to wellness, Michael finally turned that corner we’ve been on the lookout for over the last several, long weeks.

In celebration of Michael’s strides in recuperation, and for the general well-being of our family, we decided this past weekend to throw the kidlets in the truck and head out for a day of fun.  Destination: Balboa Fun Zone.

This was Finn’s first time on a carousel – he LOVED it!  He was cracking up the whole time; it was priceless.

After partaking of the ferris wheel, the carousel, and a hearty junk food lunch of hot dogs and fries, we rented an electric boat and cruised around Newport Harbor for an hour.

We finished off the afternoon by gorging ourselves on ice cream.

It was a feast of food and togetherness; it was perfect.

    Seriously looks fun! I’m a little jealous of those who live so near to the beach! And I love Balboa!

    I would celebrate too! The spontaneous getaways are always the most fun! Michael looks great BTW, I can see the difference.

    Looks like you had a wonderful time and I agree Michael looks a lot better 🙂
    But you know what is the funniest thing? I know Michael and Kevin are not biologically related but boy do they share similar physical characteristics. I bet most people wouldn’t even know they weren’t genetically father and son 🙂

    You all look so good… and that pic of Finn belly-laughing on the carousel made me smile ear to ear. Love to see Michael is back and looking so well.

    ITA with the others, I can see a noticable improvement in Michael, and not just from spending the day at the beach, it’s a really deep-down, “I feel good,” kind of look. I’m so happy for you! What a great day, love the pic of Finn on the carousel. What a beautiful family you have, TFS!
