Another special event happened while we were gone on our Disney trip. A family friend, Haylie Stafford Dufour and her sweet friend Christi Blair, planned a softball benefit tournament for Anna Grace. I am in awe of their generosity. They had never even met Anna Grace. Thank you to all who supported the tournament and those who played in it. We are truly grateful for your support.

Where Dreams Come True
(End of August) A 14 hour rode trip (with a three and five year old) was just the beginning of a vacation filled with memories that will last a lifetime. When we first heard that Anna Grace has a terminal disorder, Brad said that he wanted to take her to Disney World. Anna Grace absolutely loves Cinderella and he wanted to make sure that she was able to enjoy Disney at least once more before anything happened to her health or mobile abilities. Brad's brother got word of this and had us a trip planned before we knew it. It was a wonderful trip. Both of our parents were able to come and Brad's brother's family as well. It was the perfect trip! We had the best tour guide too (thanks Brian). The highlight of the trip was when Anna Grace was able to dance with Cinderella and Belle in their special autograph room. Since our party was so big, our family was the only family in the room. It was a very special moment. She had been wanting to dance with Cinderella since we started on the trip. Anna Grace and Makenzie both had a blast! Memories were made that will last forever.
