Our second annual Vision Walk went off without a hitch...
...except for the fact that I went to the wrong address at first and arrived all late and huffy.
But let's not talk about that. Let's talk about how all these good, good people showed up to show their support. (There was one mom and daughter who we somehow missed in that above picture though, darn it.)
What you can't see in that above picture is the big ceremony they held at the beginning to give out awards for which team raised the most money, who had the best t-shirts, who had the most spirit, etc.
We walked three laps around this one-mile diameter park,
ate bagels, cotton candy and snow cones galore,
did some good jumping,jumped on bouncy house things,
had some brother-bonding,
and enjoyed hanging with all these people we love so much.Claudia (below) came last year too (love you, Claudia & girls!).
I wish I could have taken a picture of Lucy with all her best friends who were there to support her.
Unfortunately she wasn't in top-notch picture-taking mode:The moms:
Our family is so incredibly grateful for all the generous donations to the cause, monetarily, in prayers, in support, in love.
Little does Lucy fully comprehend at this point how incredibly blessed she is to have love coming at her from all sides. But she feels it. I can tell. She feels that love that has changed her and will continue to change her life for the better.
We all feel it.
Thank you, thank you.
Next year, in conjunction with my sweet sis-and bro-in-law, we're going to get started a little earlier on notifying people.
And maybe we'll even have special "I Love Lucy" team t-shirts made up...
It felt good to be doing something for such a great cause.
