So we are in the house and even though I'm OK with being at home nearly all the time, so is my wife, and so is my oldest youngest simply CAN'T! His anxiety builds over days and days and days and the next thing you know he is picking up chairs in the kitchen and throwing them into the living room (not joking).

While we are restricted to being in our homes by a $350 fine, if your child is Autistic you can take your child with their legal diagnosis with you "for a reasonable time" without getting into trouble. So that is exactly what we did doggone it. We drove and drove and drove and since we roughly had about 3 hours to kill round-trip I thought we would drop by the gym just to see the cats and make sure everything was secure. Then...THE BEACH is within sight of the gym...why not go there.

So we did!

He screamed almost all the way there, had a blast, then I had to carry him kicking and screaming all the way back to the car 🙂

But he still loved it!
