Halloween Happenings and Kicking Diabetes to the Curb!

Our Halloween weekend was super low key but fun. Friday night the girls had a few friends over and we made a big pot of chili and had a fire pit with s'mores. Then on Halloween we went to dinner and then just walked around the neighborhood for a little while. All our neighbors sit out in their driveways with fire pits so it's super nice just walking around visiting and getting candy along the way.

This past weekend we headed down to San Diego to support my niece AJ and walk in the Juvenile Diabetes walk. 5am came quick and cold as we took the shuttle from the zoo to the starting spot.

All the cousins came out to support AJ and our team raised $1,500!!

Once the sun came up bright and warm everyone thawed out and we enjoyed a beautiful morning together.

Go team AJ! AJ was diagnosed almost a year ago and so this was our families first time participating in this event but Team AJ will be back next year!

Good exercise. Good attitudes. Good scenery. Good family time.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored us financially and or came out to walk. It was a great day and I'm super proud of my little niece as she figures out how to live with type 1 diabetes; she has a great attitude and is doing an amazing job managing it all.

Until our next adventure!

I love the girls' costumes. I suppose I'm not the only one who sees the relevance of a diabetes walk right around Halloween time. ;)

Hi Aimmee, yes and the fact that Coca Cola was one of the biggest sponsors for the walk was enough to make your head spin as well.
