There were a lot of issues at the baby shower. For starters, Tammy had trouble getting in the vehicle just to get there. Once they got there, the wheelchair would not go across the gravel. So, they made Tammy do a little walking. She used the vehicle for support. Chris planned on backing the wheelchair over a ramp to get up to the picnic tables. But, the ramp was not wide enough for the wheelchair. Tammy said she thought she could just walk up the ramp onto the picnic area.
