Today was the very first buddy event. I went into the event super tired and not focused. This all changed when my buddy got there. Gracie (my buddy) is so sweet, and always full of ideas for fun things to do! She is only three years younger than me, so I feel like we always have something to talk about. The event started off with a fun photo booth picture, in which Gracie laughed and smiled and really brought my energy level up! We then headed over to the splash park where we spent most of our time running around and really having a great time. After that we got some snow cones and chilled on the swings for a bit. We wrapped up the day by playing with Gracie’s older brother who is also in the buddy program. It was really great to see how well she got along with her brother and how much fun we all had together. I can’t wait until the next Buddy Event!
