Got the tshirt!

We came. We walked. We got the tshirt. :o)
I was so very proud of mom for making the walk. She suffers from several illnesses, not the least being degenerative bone disease in her spine and shoulders. This is a horribly painful disease and makes walking and sitting very difficult. This photo is after our survivor lap. Daddy could out walk all of us. He walks his farm's hills and hollows every day. A quarter mile around a flat track was nothing for him. :o) Heather walked the caregiver lap with me. And even Miss Jaidyn walked a whole lap. Debbie and Penny were both there to support us. A big thank you to all that supported us in The Relay for Life. Cancer is a wicked thing and the cure needs to be found NOW.
Happy Father's Day Daddy! You are the best daddy to your girls. We love you! Yesterday we had our family celebration. A farmhand supper of chicken/dumplings, green beans/potatoes, buttered carrots, deviled eggs, cottage cheese and tomatoes. Pineapple cake for dessert. Simple fare is so good.
I am blessed. ~Angela

What a blessing to you all that you could walk together!

Glad you enjoyed your farmgirl dinner. Sounds yummy. My husband has been requesting Chicken and noodles and I keep telling him that's winter time food! Guess it isn't.

That is wonderful that you could all be there to walk together, and in a way, it is so very heartbreaking too, that your family has experienced this so much...too much! Sorry I haven't stopped by lately. I've been missing from blog-hopping trying to get things done around the house. Argh, too much work!! Happy Father's Day to your dad.

Your family sounds so nice...but pineapple cake does not sound too simple fare to me!!!
