In my last blog I posted the link to the my speech at the Relay for Life in Pulaski County. What an honor it was to be chosen to do the opening speech. I just thought I would share with you a little more about that relay. My parents are from St. Robert and were part of the St. Robert Fire Department team. We weren't at the Relay long because we had to make the long drive back that evening but we had a great time getting to visit with them.
The kids enjoyed getting to hang out with their grandparents.
I also had a nice time catching up with old friends.
One of which even offered to take me up in the aerial and take pictures.
I should also point out that no only did I get to go up in the aerial but it happens to be the coolest one I have ever seen.
Believe it or not. Growing up in the fire service and even being on a department when I was younger. This was my first ride up in one of these. I must say it was pretty awesome. Thanks Chief!
I don't think there was a single moment that the bounce thing wasn't full of kids.
All three of mine had a blast jumping on this thing.
Chloe probably enjoyed it the most. Check out the air she got on this jump!
The girls had a blast playing games and winning prizes.
Jo's favorite part was the candy. Every time I turned around someone from the fire department was giving her more candy. Which she kept dropping and trying eat off the ground.
As always there was a ton of walking.
Maybe the best part of all was getting to hang with GOLDEN BOY!!!!!!!!
Yes ladies he is single!
No relay is complete without a picture of the worlds greatest caregiver.
I wish we could have stayed the entire time for this one. Although we only spent a few hours at this Relay 4 Life it was a ton of fun. They did an amazing job despite the heat. Thank you again for having us. It was an honor and privilege to be a part of such a fantastic relay.
