Relay for Life

Last weekend we had the opportunity to be a part of a Relay for Life team that my brother put together! Every team had to have a way to raise money for the American Cancer Society and if you know my brother at all, you know that he always goes ABOVE and BEYOND! He worked his magic and got a rock wall donated for the evening! We had a great time and stayed up most of the night (until about 5:00am) raised money for ACS, spent the night with good friends, and made some fun memories!

Bren's first try at the rock wall...she was frustrated at first but that didn't stop her, by the end of the night she had climbed to the top approx. 15 times :)

Avery and Baylee with "real" princesses
Team "Don't Quit"
Avery's first and only try at the rock wall..but she sure is cute hanging there! :)

We bought luminaries for a few of our favorite people...Our sweet and precious momma, who we miss more than anything..
When we signed up to get the rock wall, we had to have an attendant with it the whole night...turns out that God sent us a 20yo guy who had Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and went into about 4 years we honored him as well!
our sweet Grandmama...
and our Grauntie, who is an ovarian cancer survivor!!
A little face paint for the little girls

Our team even made it to the 2nd round of the volleyball tournament...not bad for abunch of old folks!!
