Dream Come True

Tricia can check off one of her life-long dreams...wearing the Iceman (Rita's mascot) costume at our fund-raiser the other day. Here is a quick video (courtesy of my phone) of Tricia dancing and waving to people driving by...

Seriously bummed that I didn't get video of Tricia falling down in the costume and being laughed at and pointed at by a car-full of teenage boys...don't worry, she was OK and we were both laughing too.

BTW, we made nearly $200 for the CFF, which, for a last minute fund-raiser, is really good! Thanks to everyone who sponsored and helped out and donated!

I'm sorry Tricia fell, but I probably would have laughed too. I'm glad she had a good time.

Hey Nate,
that's really funny, it looks like fun! I was just reading a blog sent to me by my sister, its a blog by a med student. my sisters son has cleft palate and she always gets so frustrated w/ the nurses and hosbitals, but this blog helps her to see it from their point of view. I just thought that since your in the hosbital so much you might like it also. here it is 6yearmed.blogspot.com
