Saturday night was the Fundraiser One For The Kids. The special night for us started with a Limo Ride to the Hotel. Ellie and Jake LOVED the limo ride. Then after we arrived at the hotel the kids got to swim a bit. Then we got to meet the entire board for One for the Kids. What an amazing group of guys that volunteer there time for good causes.
The party was amazing from the Band, live painter, Candy Bar, Butlers that brought out McDonald Cheese burgers at 10pm, wine tasting, and my personal favorite Tim Smith from Walter E Smith singing Summer of 69 and Lavita loco. Might I add Adriane and myself are now best buds with him. Ok maybe not best buds but I did get his business card ;). They defiantly know how to throw a party. I felt so blessed to be surrounded by Family, Friends, Community, and what my sister likes to call Ellie Groupies. I cannot tell you how much fun we all had. The hardest thing was trying to have a chance to talk to everyone. I felt bad I didn’t get to chat with everyone. From what I understand is that everyone had a great time. I was really proud of Ellie she handled the crowd really well and took pictures. After that both Ellie and her brother headed up to the room with a babysitter where they had a blast playing games.
I cannot tell you how incredible it was. The only thing I wish I had was a camera on me. I am hoping to get pictures from family and friends that took pictures so I can post them. If you have pictures send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to see them. I already have a couple I would love to share with you all.
I cannot thank everyone enough for everyone that helped support the fundraiser in one-way or another. Thank You. Also special thanks to Dan and Jennifer Irwin for nominating our family and making it a very special night for our family. It’s a night I will never forget. Thank you.
I also am going to try to upload a video of Ellie in the Limo that is the cutest ever. I am sure I will pay for this someday but for now I have to share. She was adorable acting like a chicken.
A mother with a battle ahead of her.
