Walk for Wishes

I love my crazy and passionate friend Diana! I have had so many NEW life experiences with her! Last night, I had yet another NEW life experience! The older three boys and I spent the night inside a minor league baseball stadium as part of a fundraiser for the Make a Wish Foundation.
Diana's daughter Carly has a rare disease - juvenile myositis -and she has been a recipient of a WISH. Carly actually got to spend a day modeling in New York City! Isn't that so cool?

We all had so much FUN! Andrew went with us, and he even won a PRIZE! We got to meet several WISH children, WISH volunteers, play games, have our faces painted, eat sandwiches, roll down the big hill, have all-you-can-eat cotton candy, all-you-can-drink Starbucks Coffee, hug on Carly, have fun with Lindsay, meet the Make-A-Wish Bear (hmmm...who is that?) and - my favorite part of all - we got to sleep in the Winston Salem Warthogs Dugout - until 4 am! (Ha, ha Diana!)

Seriously, we had a great time! It was wonderful being part of something so dear to a precious friend! Diana, you are priceless! Thank you so much for your incredible friendship!

Sleep in a dugout...a new life experience...yeah...that's what friends do!
