|Isabel Andino, Richard Deskin and Wyatt are ready for the SoCal Jeeps Club parade.|
I wasn't able to get out to cover it (self isolation and all that), so I asked local Wildomartini (or Wildomartian if you prefer), Richard Deskin, if he'd mind putting together a few paragraphs to go along with the photos he'd taken. Much to my delight, I received a first hand account from Wyatt's mom, Shonna Goettman.
On March 25th, I posted on a mommy group that has Moms from all over the country in it. I said that my son's 4th Birthday was coming up and was wondering if some moms would be up for having their kids draw Happy Birthday pictures, and mail them to me so I could put a book together for my son.
One mom suggested reaching out to a city member as in her area the fire department and or police would drive by a child's house on their birthday, run their sirens and wish them a Happy Birthday.

So many people commented about doing a birthday Parade by the child's house. Isabel Andino and Richard Deskin took charge. Richard asked about the neighborhood and if it would be okay to have eleven Jeeps drive by the house for Wyatt's birthday. I said, "Yes".

My children have taken two walks in our neighborhood and played out in the front yard twice in the last month, those are the only four times my children have stepped foot out the front door in a month.
|Eleven Jeeps in a row? A sight to behold.☺|
|I'm guessing that the Pterodactyl's name is Pterry.|

|Great license plate too.|

One of my favorite things was the large card made and signed by so many participants of the parade. Wyatt may not have had a normal or traditional birthday party but this is a birthday we will NEVER forget!
Thank you so much to Richard, Isabel, and SoCal Jeeps Club! We truly can not tell you all how much this meant to us!
