A Night Out

Tonight everyone enjoyed a night out! Even the rain couldn’t damper our delight to head out on the town.

All of the parents were given gift cards to eat at a fancy New York City restaurant.  They were thrilled to have a nice evening just as adults, but not as thrilled as their children were to have Kids Night Out!  

The kids went to Toys R Us and rode the ferris wheel before checking out the whole 3 story store.  Then they went out for an exciting dinner at Hard Rock Cafe.  When we returned to the hotel, there were Toys R Us gift bags waiting for them.  All of them were elated with the contents of their bags – from the 3 year old with his Thomas the Train tatoo to the 12 year with her i-tunes gift card.

Some comments from tonight included:

“Thank you so much.  We had such a great time at dinner with just the two of us.  It was such a great gift to us!”

“This retreat has been amazing!  My family has found an avenue to deal with this illness and all the challenges it creates.”

“Thank you Geoffrey the Giraffe!”

Check out the online “Fans” group for lots of pictures and videos.  We will continue to post more in the upcoming days as we return home from this retreat.
