Dance Marathon

We got to participate in the Dance Marathon at UF this past weekend. What an event! 700+ college students dance/stand for 26.5 hours. 200+ college students are there as support and facilitators. 20+ families get to come and share their inspirational stories. We were among the families and our kids had a blast running wild in the ODome and in the bounce house allllllll day.

G loves Grave Digger. It's creepy. It embarrasses me... When we showed up our family "Host" Grant took G off to color. G drew his favorite thing. Grant saw the big wheels and dashed off to return with a 10 inch Grave Digger toy. Wow!

Grant was one of the dancers last year and G had played with him down on the floor. Grant remembered that G loved monster trucks so he'd bought him one. Total awesome coincidence that he picked out G's favorite.

We listened to conference with the family on Sunday. It was great to let the kids run around and play with the toys at Grandma's house. Then switch locations to Grandpa and Grandma's house for another session. I use to wonder why people just watched the Sunday sessions. Well when you have kids it makes more sense. I love General Conference. It's awesome.

What a fun weekend. Now I know why we missed you on Chatzy. I can hardly wait to see you at the end of April. I'm only sorry I won't be there longer.
