Last Thursday night, I had the opportunity to take a 3 hour ride in the Goodyear Blimp. While we were over Akron I took this picture because of the Children’s Tree (in blue). I recently delivered triplets (they will be 3 months tomorrow). My son was stillborn and my two daughters were in the NICU for two weeks. A family friend made a donation of lights on the tree for my three children. We attended the tree lighting ceremony and took pictures of the tree, but to see it above the ground “a little closer” to my son was very emotional.
We were in the blimp because we had the opportunity. My brother-in-law’s friend is one of the pilots. He needed some flight time and didn’t have anyone to go along, so my husband, brother-in-law, and myself went for a ride.
