Relay for life 2010

This year was another emotional year. We walked for a cure, we walked for hope. We walked in honor, and in memory.
This year was a memorable one. Our team (Vancouver Ford/Mark Little) Raised  $14,027 Towards a cure. I am so proud to have been a part of that. We camped out for the entire night. First time we have done that since the kids were born. They did pretty good! I managed to stay up till about 4:30 am. Then I crashed out in the tent. Jeff woke up to man the drawing table. It was pretty cold when we arrived to help set up, but warmed up pretty quickly.

This picture breaks my heart and calls me to rejoice in the same. These are our Clark County, Wa survivors. Even the 3, beautiful children in front.

My wonderful husband manned the POP+CHIPS+SHIRT for $1 trailer!

Our top donations! Vancouver Ford came in 2nd this year!

 There were so many Luminaries. Too many...

 One reason we walk

The other reason we walk.

 Oh ye midnight snack of all nighters! So good it was!

 The next morning we drew names to see who won the 100% donated prizes!
 3 of them being big flat panel t.v.s by Best Buy!!!!

 JJ won The bowling party for 8 with 2 bowling balls to be carved to fit!
 It was another amazing year. I walked in honor/memory of my Grandfather. Almost 2 years ago he passed. Strongest person I know.

Linder Family Reunion

Oh my! I have lost my place! What month is it? Since June 14th, things have been so busy. Jeff's mom, grandma and aunty flew up, then we had Jeff's cousin Josh's wedding and the Linder family reunion. So for today, I will just cover the wedding! And what a beautiful wedding it was!

It gave me a chance to get some AMAZING Pics of my babies!

Papa and JJ found a cherry tree with bright juicy cherries! And he looked so handsome in his church clothes! I love his formal clothes!

JJ was just slightly obsessed with the Bride. It was adorable! As she started to walk down the isle, he looked up and said "Is that the princess?" I was amazed! He melted my heart with that! The rest of the day he was always looking for her. He found a white rose at one point and completely un prompted, he took the rose to her. I was butter! My son is such a gentleman! I am so proud of him! In fact, on the way home he told us all that he wanted a princess to! I made sure he knew, that one day, he too will have a princess!

JJ made friends with one of the Flower Girls, he was sharing his snack with her.

 JJ and his Flower Girls!

 If my son knew I posted this.... He had some pretty awesome dance moves!

 JJ dancing away with the flower girl! He had such a good time!

Papa had a special dance with his Leidibug. I loved it! She too was a dancing cutie!

It was a great day! A great start to an amazing weekend!
