Well this weekend was a lot of fun. Mommy's best friend from college flew in for Braden's birthday, and so did Nana and Grandpa Wilson!! Saturday was filled with lots of fun and celebration at the Seize the Day Walk for Epilepsy and a celebration of our special little boy's THIRD BIRTHDAY!!

We took out Baby Bee's team dressed in bumblebee visors and wearing bumblebee pins as we took our "fun walk". Then it was to the race tent city with free drinks and jambalaya, recognition of all who walked with epilepsy, and a memory balloon release for a recent epilepsy family loss. Then it was off to Mike the Tiger's habitat for some bbq, bumblebee cupcakes, and fellowship and friendship. We were joined by MANY friends, including the only other local family we know with a child with Leigh's... six-year-old survivor Julianna and her baby brother Stephen and parents Stephanie & Glen. Mommy and daddy were so busy socializing - I think they forgot to take pictures at the actual birthday party! Oops. But daddy did put together a great montage from the walk and the day on youtube... the link is:

THANK YOU to everyone who came out to support Braden, who sent cards or gifts or medical fund donations - we so appreciate everything you do for us!!

One last thing... I think we've decided that from now on we will ALSO be celebrating half birthday's, since we don't know just how many more God will choose to bless us with. So we might actually be starting an annual fundraiser just for Braden around that time in late October.

Enjoy the pics from the birthday bash... please take note that little Jackson didn't pull his hat off just for Braden!
Braden, Kodi, & Brad

It looks like you had a great day. We wish we could have been there to celebrate with you. An October party sounds like a lot of fun. Maybe we could actually get a Betschart/Sauser group together down there! :) Let us know when you pick a date.
