Amusement Park Outing - 8/24/2007

Well, we did our annual outing to Canobie Lake Amusement park (in New Hampshire) tonight. Given Nichole's processor falls off so easily, we were constantly putting in on, then taking it off. Got quite tiresome, but better than the alternative of loosing it. We eagerly await the adult version of the snugfit for holding the processor on more securely (she tried the kid's version in Sturbridge, but it was too small).

The highlight of the night for me, was not the excitement of the Yankee Cannonball roller coaster nor being shot into the night sky on the Starblaster, but driving away from the park, in the dark car, with Nichole sitting in the seat behind me, yet being able to carry on a conversation with her! It was one of those moments I never thought I would experience. She couldn't see me or my wife in order to lipread, but she was understanding our questions and enthusiastically participating in the chat. I know I have said it before, but this is really a miracle device!
