WordFUL Wednesday ~ For the Big Kids & the Babies

Tim's birthday went well. I made him his requested dinner - chicken fettucini alfredo, roasted asparagus, and garlic bread. (did I mention I also love his taste in food? YUM!) And of course I made him a cake! He liked his gifts and we all had a very nice time celebrating.


(I love my house but I HATE my retro counter tops! My kitchen needs a makeover. ASAP!)

(Elayna iced the cake, and she was extremely proud of herself. She told everyone AT LEAST three times that SHE iced the cake!!)


Making a wish....

Our March for Babies walk also went well. I wasn't sure how bad walking 8.6 miles would be, but it wasn't bad at all! The weather was great, and there were many Spirit Stations which kept us very well-hydrated and also offered snacks and lots of encouragement. We had a really good time, and my unit raised just under $800 for the babies.
After the walk, as always, we visited John's baby's grave. We took a fresh arrangement and made sure his little Hot Wheels were still on the grave. We only hope that our fundraising efforts help spare a parent the pain that John went through (and will always deal with).




As always, WordFUL Wednesday is brought to you by Seven Clown Circus, for those of us who like to post pics but can't keep from talking about them!
