.........all good things must come to an end. The end has come to Owen's magical wish trip. We had a wonderful week, and as we packed up and got ready to go we were all a little sad to say good-bye to Cherry Creek and the Denver area.
There aren't many pictures from this day because it was a little bit rushed once we got on the road. We needed to meet the guy from Sonny's RV in Rawlins so he could drive the RV back to Casper. I still can not get over their kindness and generosity! We didn't make as good of time as I thought we could but we tried and enjoyed our journey home.
Once we got close to home we hit a storm and it was a down pour. We got to unload the RV in a rainstorm but everyone was such good help that it went well. I just felt bad putting Sonny's driver back on the road in that storm and late time of day. A huge THANK YOU again to Sonny's RV.
We are so grateful for everyone that made this trip possible! It will always be a highlight in all of our memories. Everything was wonderful! I can't wait to pay this one forward!
I did forget to mention that throughout the week Owen was thanked many times for this wonderful trip mostly by Abby. Out of the blue I would hear "thanks Owen for the trip!"
THANK YOU MAKE A WISH AND OUR SPONSOR AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO WAS BEHIND THE SCENES. WE LOVE YOU!

and whenever the song comes on the dance begins.

Wednesday was our day to sightsee. I wanted to make sure and see the temple. Temples have such a special place in my heart and testimony. Although the temple was beautiful and I am glad we went, it was HOT! We decided for all of us to get out and walk around the grounds but the heat hit hard on this day. We were only out about 45 minutes and Owen's vent decided it didn't like the heat at all. It started giving us a low peep alarm, that means Owen is not getting the needed air. We got him into the RV and hooked back up to power, I called the RT at primary's and Lenn gets a frozen bag of chicken nuggets for the vent. Lenn put the chicken nuggets on the vent and while we were waiting for the RT to call me back, the vent quit alarming. Thank goodness for Lenn and the frozen chicken nuggets!!!
Needless to say, that was the first and last outing for Owen that day. The rest of the sightseeing for him was done from a window in the RV. I was okay with that too!
After the temple we headed to the Air force Academy. This is the Cadet Chapel, it was amazing inside and out. They have different rooms for different religions, they were beautiful. Bentley and Abby both asked "where do the Mormons go?". It was pretty funny, being raised in a predominately LDS community our kids don't realize that it isn't the main religion everywhere.
|Lenn and Bentley were so bummed when this was as close to the field as they could get.|

Owen's t-shirt. It was probably a blessing it was hot because after two days playing hard he was able to rest most of this day.
