Last year when Ben was in New York for his brain surgeries, one of the highlights of his trip was a visit to see the Statue of Liberty. This year he asked to go back there again. Yesterday (which happened to be his parents’ ninth wedding anniversary) the family returned to Liberty Island…
Going fishing is one of Ben’s favorite pasttimes, and while on Liberty Island he just had to take advantage of being around all of that water. He pretended that he was fishing. As his dad commented, “You can take the boy out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the boy…..Ben had to go fishing at the Statue of Liberty!!!”
For those of you who don’t understand “Southern,” here’s what Ben said, “Dad, I reel my line in so fast because I got a bass so fast.”
As I write this, our little guy is under anesthesia undergoing medical tests at Kravis Children’s Hospital in New York. It will be a long day.
