Ethan & Greg at Six Flags

 Ethan has been working to earn a trip to Six Flags by taking his supplements without complaint and in a timely manner. After filling up his sticker chart for doing just that 20 times we headed off to Six Flags last weekend for a day of fun and rewards.

Ethan loved getting to ride some rides for the first time and was so patient in all of the lines. He acted so big!

    Always the train lover, we spent a lot of time on the train, getting from one side of the park to the other. Before our last train ride as we walked through the line to board the train cars, the engineer blew the whistle and rustled some insects in the bushes we were passing. Poor Ethan was not only surprised by the ear-piercing toot, but he was also stung on the ear! Poor guy. It really hurt; his ear swelled within minutes but we applied ice and a nice lady in front of us had a “Sting Relief” wipe we used. Then we went to the First Aid building where Ethan was given a topical medication which helped the pain and swelling.

Ouch–Ethan’s swollen ear

Just after that he was happy to stand in line for hours for another ride. So, while he was stung, he certainly thought the trip was worthwhile!

We did have fun.
