Eric came up with three goals for 2016. He wants to ride in a boat, on a train, and on a tractor.
First goal accomplished! We weren't sure how well Eric would handle actually being on a boat, so we planned a short trip for the first try. We took a ten-minute boat ride to Boldt Castle, which is situated on an island in the St. Lawrence River. We brought along his earmuffs in case things got a little too loud for him. And we went early in the season so we wouldn't have to wait in a long line of tourists.
Eric was a trooper! He enjoyed riding on the boat (good thing we brought those earmuffs) and exploring the castle, and he was patient when we had to wait for the boat to arrive to take us back to shore. Great day!
