Power of Pink









Last night we braved the torrential rains and severe weather and attended the Alabama vs Auburn Gymnastics Meet - it was the Drive for the Cause or Power of Pink meet to raise money for the treatment of Breast Cancer. Over $150,000 was raised and it was a sell out meet of over 15,000, though not that many were in attendance thanks to the flooding roads. WE HAD A BLAST.



We went with my dear friend Ashley and her daughter Mary Alice. I have to give Ashley credit for the ideas of the Power of Pink sign and the pink accessories. Our goal was to have a great time and get on the big screen tv! And we succeeded! We got on the tv TWICE - the first was mainly the sign (and me b/c I was holding it) and the second time was ALL of us. The girls had a great time dancing during the rotations - I saw Emma Claire dance like I've never seen her dance before. I think it may have something to do with the funky outfit I let her wear - as opposed to the usual conservative clothes she wears!!!







We ate lots of these, and sour patch kids, which may also have attributed to the dancing!









This morning we woke up to some blueberry pancakes and sausage and eggs. In a little while, the children and I are heading to Birmingham to spend the day with my parents!
In true Wilson fashion, he likes to walk around with his pancake and then NOT eat it

Daisy is ALWAYS right behind him!



Wilson enjoyed some movie time in Henderson's exersaucer - you're never too old!
