… to be featured on the HoliBlog.
And it takes a very special person to be feature twice!
Almost exactly two years ago (April 23, 2010 to be exact), we told you about Caleb. We've reposted his picture and story, below.
Well Caleb was back this week for another tour; this time, it was Mammoth.
And, because he's such a nice guy, he brought along his younger brother, Slade.
Caleb has been taking vitual rides on Mammoth all winter (as often as his mom, Beth, lets him; he has homework, chores and sleep to accomplish, too!).
Thanks to Caleb and Slade for letting Lori, our water-park director, take your photo for this blog post. Try to get some sleep, guys, between now and May 11 when Mammoth opens!
Here's Caleb's story from 2010: Wildebeest's #1 fan
Our water park director, Lori, just sent me this:
This is a photo of Caleb, he lives just down the road from here. His teacher at Nancy Hanks Elementary told me this winter that Caleb talks about the Wildebeest constantly and he is on-line watching it whenever he gets a chance.
I told her that I would give him a tour.
His mother, Beth, brought him by today after school and the three of us enjoyed an extensive Wildebeest tour.
Caleb was so excited! He cannot wait to come and ride it.
He will be here on Play Day this year (a special day when Holiday World is open just for children with disabilities); his principal, Mr. Schneiders, has promised to ride The Voyage and Pilgrims Plunge with him.
