Jibboom Street Bridge

Owen LOVES bridges.
He LOVES using Google Maps and Google Earth on the computer and finding all the bridges in a certain area.

For some reason, he zoned in on the Jibboom Street Bridge in Sacramento.

He loves the Jibboom Street Bridge. Everytime he was on Google Earth or Google Maps, he was never far from Jibboom Street.

Where is Jibboom Street? It is just off I-5 near Old Town Sacramento.

One day, after Clarke had spent the day with Lilly (Daddy-Daughter), we wanted Owen to have a special day too. So, we asked him if he would like to go to the Jibboom Street Bridge. His face lit up with excitement (which is something quite rare for a child with autism) and said "YES!" So we loaded up and headed to the Jibboom Street Bridge.

Owen and I took our time walking across the bridge together while the others waited in the car. He is in HEAVEN! He couldn't wait be on the bridge. His smile was ear to ear!

Considering he can't show emotion beyond a smile, the look in his eyes was priceless. He loved every moment of it!
