MS Walk

On Saturday March 28th, we participated in the MS Walk in Addison. Our friend Miriam you can see her blog here, was diagnosed with MS about two years ago. At the beginning of the year, I decided that we should get the boys involved in some activity where the goal was to help others, and Jason decided that the MS Walk would be that activity! We both signed on under The Clouse's team The MS Busters, raised a little money to help find a cure, and were on our way to walk.

Now, this is Texas, and the weather took a crazy little turn on Friday night. It was freezing! And I'm not exaggerating, it was literally freezing! We got up Sat morning at 5:30, bundled up thermals and all. Coffee, donuts, hot chocolate, and two very cranky children by 6:30, we were out the door! There were snow flurries while we were walking up to check in! It was very cold, but it was an awesome experience! I wish it had been a little warmer, because they had so many extra activities planned after the walk. But, because it was so cold-pretty much everybody ran to their cars!

Thanks again to the Clouse's for letting our family be a small part of theirs! Thanks also to Tabitha with Fantabulous Photos, Kim with All About Pictures, and Jennifer @ Old World Salon for donating on my fundraising behalf to the silent auction.
