At the end of September we were able to go up to the Salt Lake City fairgrounds and attend an Autism Carnival! It was so much fun! They had tons of different carnival games for the boys to play, fun different characters, cotton candy, popcorn and snow cones! We also had some hot dogs for dinner!
The first thing we did was ride the little train!
We were at a sensory table and Brandon started talking to two boys about his age about minecraft! It was so cute watching these little boys that are COMPLETELY socially awkward talk on and on about a computer game! Nathan eventually joined them too, but it was nice to see boys start up a conversation like " normal" kids do!
While I was there I was able to meet a "blog hero" Topsy Turvy lady, Ashley! Her blog is "I'm Topsy Turvy". Love her! She has kids on the autism spectrum and so I feel like we have some things in common, as being crafty mom's trying to survive our "autism families". It made my day knowing that she knew who I was too! Talk about feeling special!
