Relay for Life

Sorry for missing my High Five post yesterday. It was kind of a busy day, and Levi hasn't been feeling great (stupid teething) so I decided to skip this week.

Friday evening was the Stevens County Relay for Life. We go to honor Paul's mom, his grandma, and his two aunts, all who are breast cancer survivors. Also on my mind were my grandma, Sawyer and Todd.

The first set of pictures is of the Survivor lap around the track. They all carry balloons with them, and once they get back, the balloons are released. We like to think of them as going to heaven remembering all those that were lost because of this horrible disease.

The next pictures are of our family. The top one is all of us, including Jenell's mom, sisters and one of her brothers, and our family. Bottom left is the Staples girls: Me, Jess, Jenell, Katie, Allie and Madison. Bottom right is Jenell with her sisters and Mom: Susan, Jo, Jenell and Naomi.
It's always a special night to us, for many reasons.

One of Levi's little friends from daycare was there too, and once she noticed him she was his little shadow. He wasn't real worried about her, but she just kept following him around. She liked holding his hand, and he was fine with it until he wanted to go check something else out. It was pretty cute. While the drum line performed during the opening ceremonies, they had to go dance. I got a little bit of it on video.
