Saturday, April 28th – Bobby & I anxiously waited at LAX as they called for our section of seats to board the non-stop flight to JFK. It was our first time being on a plane in a while, so we were definitely nervous. As we waited, we spotted a famous basketball player, and Danny saw Rev. Al Sharpton on his flight the next day!
We arrived Sunday at 1:11 am (Cali time) on a 5 hour flight and everyone on the plane fell asleep but me. We explored New York later that day as we did not have to start until Monday on our tour schedule.
Monday morning, we woke up to Danny banging on our door at 7:00 am and he took us to breakfast at Moonstruck in NYC. We then hopped on a train to Trenton, New Jersey. Danny knew the train system pretty well, but it was a new experience for me & Bobby.
We got picked up by a One Simple Wish team member who gave us a ride to the kickoff party at a local bar in Trenton. We met the team for the first time, got a tour of our RV, then checked in to our hotel.
Tuesday, we attended breakfast at a team member’s house and went over the tour schedule. We had two stops that day in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Both stops were quick, but were very powerful. We were able to grant a wish to a young boy to learn how to fly and to go on a boat ride provided by the local yacht club. After that, we quickly headed over to Philadelphia to grant a wish to Dakota to go to the zoo. Dakota is an amazing young lady with a lot of courage. She helped feed a polar bear!
We drove right after and headed over to Delaware and we are currently sleeping at the local Walmart. If you see us tweet us and good night. 🙂
