On 11/11/11 we have been married twelve years. Greg now thinks he should have waited one more year to marry me so that we could have been married 11 years on 11/11/11. Surely we would have blasted off into the sky with fireworks all around us or something if that was the case. ;) We went to a blue grass concert in Fearrington Village to celebrate. We memorialized the occasion with Greg's camera phone. I think we were the youngest ones there. It felt nice. :) It also felt nice to hold hands with my sweet. :)
We walked for Food allergies! We called ourselves the puffy team. It was freezing in the morning so we all wore big coats UNDER our matching t-shirts. You know you are puffy when you have to loosen the straps on the car seat. :)
It was an amazing event! There were over 500 people there raising money for research and education/awareness for food allergies. We walked around the lake at regency and I think the kids felt great to be doing something to make a difference and to be around so many other kids and supporters/friends of kids with allergies. There was a sweet DJ playing music during and after the walk, A fire engine the kids could climb through, vendors giving you multiple samples and coupons for fun and yummy allergy free products and showering your children with jelly beans, italian ices, allergy free chocolate chip cookies, and apple dippers. There were games for them to play and they always got to play until they won and then pick a prize, no matter how many times they played. The prizes were awesome happy meal toys donated by McDonalds and Burger King. The kids racked up on plastic strawberry shortcake dolls, mini star wars skateboards, mega mind villan launchers, littlest petshop, etc. Basically they were treated like royalty. It made my heart so happy to see them having so much fun in such a safe environment where I didn't have to tell them they couldn't eat something or have something that someone else was having. I am in love with the Food allergy walk. We'll be there again next year if ya wanna come be on the puffy team. :)
Parker completed his 30 mile marathon at school. Kids that participated and finished 28.5 miles at home with their families got to finish the last mile and a half at school. It was fun to go cheer him/them on.
The yellow ribbon winners!! We're proud of ya bud!
This post is going to have to be continued because it is midnight. More November excitement to come. :)
