Riding the canoe ride at Family Kingdom in Myrtle Beach.
This is probably my favorite photo from the vacation. It’s not often Gabby will let me take a photo without her cheesing out. Her calm and serene pose betrays the trauma from her previous ride, when she was in the backseat of a toddler airplane. The noise of other kids shooting their guns, the up and down motions and the grinding of the gears had her screaming and crying. They stopped the ride early to let her off, the only ride she has never taken without a smile.
This canoe was just what she needed.
