Heart Walk 2009 and fun weekend

Parker started feeling much better by Friday afternoon. I guess he just had the fever virus. I found out today that all of the kids his therapist sees were sick last week with a fever!! Guess he got it from one of them or from her. I am just glad he is all better!!

On Friday night I went out to dinner with my two best friends, Diane and Brittani. Dennis and Parker had a guys night--I'm sure they watched the hunting channel! I dont think I have announced this yet on my blog, but Diane is about 14 weeks pregnant! I am so excited for her and cant wait to find out what it is, so I can start buying her cute things!! I have to say that I am also kinda jealous...I absolutely loved being pregnant. Maybe I will be again...someday!! I am still pretty scared when it comes to having another baby!!

Saturday morning we participated in the Central Arkansas Heart Walk. Our team was "Team Parker". We had about 60 people show up to be on our team!!! It was so amazing to see all of those people there to support Parker. Raising money for the American Heart Association is very important to our family and we are so blessed to have so many people that love Parker and are willing to help us raise as much money as possible. I think we did really good. We raised over $2500--more than last year and more than our goal of $2000!! Go Team Parker!!

After the walk...Parker was tired.

It was such a beautiful day, it reached like 75 degrees and was sunny. After the walk Dennis and I took Parker to the park.

He loved the swings!

So did Daddy!

That was too hard so he just sat down and played with it!

On Sunday night we ate at my parents house and she got Parker a new dump truck for her house!!

Overall our weekend was great! Thanks again to those that donated and walk in support of Parker!!
