Great vacation!

Good morning! I am at my desk at home now! I am thanking myself for doing at least some of the wii exercise that I did to prepare me for what we have done the past 5 days! 5-6 hours of walking or pushing everyday! My knees ached so bad that I didn't think I should try walking the whole way. So, my daughter pushed, sometimes I pushed myself thu the aquarium and botanical gardens. It made me more aware of how rude people can be to anyone in a wheelchair! Apparently they didn't see my camera posed almost above my head to snap a pic and they walk right by! I also have video-one of them has someone running across halfway thu!

I felt pretty good at the baseball game-just got sunburned on my face! Almost half of the animals were sleeping at the zoo. We stopped to eat at the zoo and I wanted to review my pics on camera and saw the battery had fallen out! The door on it was opening sometimes when I took camera out of case so I had to close it. We hoped they had one at gift shop there and were going to check when we were done eating. After the few people cleared out (sat down) I saw it on the sidewalk behind us! Thank you!! I was surprised no one stepped on it! My daughter cut a piece off a bandaid to secure the door. Worked well.

I've been putting some pics on facebook. We saw a double rainbow on the way home. Nice finish! And the fact that I lost 5 lbs on trip. I could tell I was getting wore out from walking! Especially without a break in between days.

take care-Linda
