Brooklyn's Playground

Funny story...
Brooklyn's playground is an all inclusive playground for all children, especially those with disabilities. Over $500,000 was donated and over 450 volunteers a day built it in 1 week. Emma and Rob spent a day on the the project and it was super duper rewarding. We took the kids to the ribbon cutting event on Saturday morning. Disney Princesses were there, free BBQ, ice cream, and cookies for all who attended. During the ceremony Ethan wandered off to find his friend Mason. He quickly got lost and we were searching for him in the very large crowd. We found him in the arms of a woman who was looking for us. Ethan was crying when she picked him up and she asked his name. He looked at her and he finger spelled E T H A N. She immediately thought...oh NO he can't speak and he is DEAF! It was about that time that we found him. We have not stopped laughing about that. Silly boy!
