She knocked on the door lightly.She heard someone come up to the door,pause for a second then unlock and open
"He's in Lindsay's room." Lydia told her.
"Thanks!" she said as she rushed past her and headed towards Lindsay's door at the end of the hallway.
She finally reached the door.It felt like she had been running forever down the hallway.
She reached for the doorknob and slowly opened the door.She saw the light pink wall of her daughter's room
She stuck her head around the door to see what was going on in the room.
What she saw made her smile.She saw the 2 people that she loved the most in the world.
Lindsaywas on Ryan's lap and they were both sitting in the rocking chair.Both were fast asleep.
She quietly stepped into the room and shut the door,trying not to wake them up.

But since Ashley,Dico,Rake,Novak, and Glomb didn't go,it just left Bam,Tim O' Conner,Raab,April,Phil, and
Vito.The MTV crew said they needed more of Bam's friends to make it funnier.
So Ryan had to go.Alexia hung out with Lindsay for the 2 weeks she was off.She had taken her to an amusement
park, 2 cities over.
They had a picture taken to remember that day.Alexia had 2 made:1 for her and 1 for Lindsay.
Alexia walked back over to Ryan.She was thinking about whether or not to get a blanket for Ryan,when his eyes
