Hey, Journey Group! I had SO much fun today with my buddy, Owen! He was so cute and he was really full of energy!! We were the first and one of the last people to leave the Splash Grounds because he enjoyed it so much! My buddy partner, Julia, was an ENORMOUS help to showing Owen what we should do next and she was an expert at making him smile. At first, Owen was a little hesitant to be playing with his new friends but after a few minutes we were playing “Let’s be dinosaurs!” and he smiled and laughed and he really enjoyed himself. I felt really content after leaving and it made me so happy to know that I had made Owen feel like the “King of the dinosaurs”. I ducked for cover underneath a water shield, and sent him flying through the air on his personal swing. I had such a blast at my first buddy event and I can’t wait for the next one.
