Enjoying the Fall Weather

The weather is FINALLY cooling down and we have been enjoying lots of time playing outside! I also got a new camera lens that I'm in love with so I've been snapping lots of pictures. Emma Claire is into all things "art" right now so this week we broke out the sidewalk chalk and she loved it.


BBQ for Babies

The 3rd Annual Duke Intensive Care Family Advisory Board BBQ for Babies was October 1st. This year I served as co-chair for the event and couldn't be more pleased with how the day went. We had beautiful weather, a great turn out, and raised almost $7,000 for the Family Advisory Board. Funds raised provide welcome bags for the families, a weekly meal, meal passes/parking passes, and other special projects such as a tv for the waiting room.

This year was especially fun because Emma Claire was old enough to enjoy the activities and we shared the day with friends & their children we've grown to know through the board. Uncle Ryan & Aunt Katie came out to help as well.
