To New Heights!

Destiny has made a full recovery from last Friday morning's crisis, and both she and Benny have soared to new heights since.

They have picked corn from gigantic crops, been stuck in the mud on a forrest work road and have had to be drug out by a massive tow truck, gone fishin', swimming in Bowstring Lake, gone snail shell hunting, caught frogs and tried to feed them, ran all over a huge lake property with Tank and Tank's new friend,Shadow, peed in a double-outhouse LOL and, last but not least, played in a treehouse and flew through the trees! Literally!!

Watch them go...

Them are my kids!! I'm so proud of both of them, and I'm truly grateful for all of the nice new friends we have made in northern Minnesota!

You all know that I'm the Adventurer, and I desire experiences of all kinds for Benny and Destiny. With Desty's new diagnosis, my desire has grown much stronger...I am pretty optimistic about the future, and I need to know that I'm doing all that I can to keep the good times a'comin'!

One of my favorite moments this trip, was when we accidentally ventured onto a dirt road not meant for vehicle use and got stuck in the mud.
Outside, we were surrounded by an unbelievable gang of mesquitos and trees (and whatever lived in them!). After being pulled out by a friendly tow-truck man (who I actually am convinced is an angel - I really don't know how he got to us so quickly...), the jolliest sheriff I have ever met escorted us to our destination for the heck of it. Benny and Destiny, instead of being afraid, now know that if they're ever "stuck", the police and others are around to help. 9-1-1 isn't just for bad seizures and asthma attacks ;-)

We bid Minnesota farewell as it's time to come home....hopefully by Saturday.

What a cool post! Seeing Destiny fly through the trees must have brought tears to your eyes! It nearly brought tears to mine.

So ... Does Benny get a treehouse and zip line in the back yard? (LOL!)
