Six Word Saturday

WALKING FOR A CURE FOR EMMA!

This morning - I got to join my friends in support of that cute little girl - Emma! Remember her? The one from the Dancing Video from Memorial Weekend... here's a reminder of how cute she is!

Emma has Rhematoid Arthritis & she just turned two years old. She has it in her knees & just yesterday found out it is now in her neck & possibly her hips...Pray for this little Angel!!! Her joints swell up & its painful for her mommy to even touch her sometimes...

But today, we had a big-o team do a Arthritis Walk in support of her & others who suffer from arthritis... incluidng her Nanny & my dearest friend, Lynn (You can click on her name to find out more about Emma too).... TEAM EMMA V!!!!!


Every shirt had names with who we are to Emma.. I LOVE mine..AUNT-ISH! Isnt that great!



For those that suffer, there was a 1 miles walk - & for anyone that wanted, there was a 5k.... me, Lynn & Carly did the 5K... it was a perfect day! Cool, sunny but a nice breeze... a great walk, a little bit of a run & lots of laughter!!!! So proud of Lynn for making it the full 5K!! (Mini Marathon - here you come!!!!)



I dont think this organization gets the recognizition as so many others, such as AIDS or Breast Cancer, but there are so many causes out there & so much people suffer from. The interesting thing to me - most of the bigger "Teams" there were in support of children that suffer! Oh, if a cure could be found to help ease this before they turn into adults!!!!

The walk was at Louisville Slugger Field so this is me, Carly & Emma's brother, Levi, who turns one year old in a few days....


But Lynn, Carly & myself got to go to the best place in the world... Panara Bread. They were so kind to humor me because I usually cant go there on a normal day. Ricky doesnt dig the place - but he was awfully happy when I came home with a fresh loaf of cinnamon raisin bread! MMMM... But I swear, they have the BEST chicken noodle soup in the world!


I love spending time with my friends, happy to support Emma & just enjoyed my afternoon something fierce.... didnt like it when I got home though! Talking to Lynn & Carly as they were leaving... look what happened... DANG BEE STING!! Yes, that's swollen on the back of my knee... so I'm now sitting here with ice on the back of my leg! Little booger!


Hope you all are enjoying your weekend as much as I've enjoyed mine!!!
