The Carroll Family, Shorewood, Illinois
June 7, 2003
Shelby was so excited to come home from the carnival and find Ruby on our doorstep! Shelby has carried Ruby everywhere! She's met all of her friends and family. The two of them really got around!
They spent the night at a friend's house, went to see a couple of movies - Lord of the Rings and The Hulk. And they've been out to dinner and at a Graduation party.
On the 20th, Shelby's sister had a dance recital rehearsal, so Shelby and Ruby were treated to a special day with Shelby's aunt. Shelby and Ruby went to Sam's (Shelby's twin sister) dance recital on Sunday, June 22. It was fun. Then we went out to a late dinner with some other dancers. They giggled a lot and seemed to have a good time.
Monday, June 23, we took a trip up to Chicago. We had a great day! Shelby was feeling a little sad about the prospect of Ruby going back, so we went to Build-A-Bear and Shelby made a new friend that she named "Mike." From there, we went to the Children's Museum, went miniature golfing, had some lunch, and went to the Lincoln Park Zoo.
Shelby's visit with Ruby was very special. She's never wanted to touch a needle and she actually gave Ruby her shots! It was great. We hope the next family has as much fin with Ruby as we did! It was great having her here.
