Another Disney Race

I had so much fun at the 2014 Disney Princess races with Girl Power 2 Cure that I couldn't resist signing up for the Disney Avengers race in California with the same group.  It was WINDY the day of the race, so not one of my better races, but we still raised money toward Rett Syndrome so it was still a great day.

 We are Rett Avengers!

I took Addy with me, she enjoyed the beach!

I think our favorite ride at Disneyland had to be in Cars Land.  Lucas would love it!

Can you guess who is under the mask?

Twin Cities Marathon Recap

The 2014 Twin  Cities Marathon was a huge success!  The weather was perfect for running - 30s and 40s - and our Rett Racers team raised over $22,000 for Rett Syndrome!  Thank you to all who helped make this such an amazing event!

Our wonderful cheering section!

Twin Cities Marathon

October is Rett Syndrome Awareness month!

And what better way to start it off by running a marathon!  The Twin Cities Marathon is this weekend, October 5th, and Mitch and I are running it to raise money and awareness towards Rett Syndrome to help Riley and other girls like her.  All money goes to IRSF to help fund research and other important programs.

Please take a moment to visit our fundraising webpage and make a donation if you can.

Rett Racers - Riley

Tuesday, September 30, 2014


We might be a little bit crazy!  We have a new addition to the family, a golden retriever we named Ginger.  She is adorable, but we forgot how much work puppies are!

Sadie isn't extremely fond of her yet, but hopefully she will grow to tolerate her.

She can look like such an angel, but she's really not...

Riley's school in the news

I wanted to share this video - Riley's school playground made the news and there are snippets of Riley (and her shoes!) in it.  Kind of fun to watch!

Playing hooky

Riley got sick at school yesterday so she is home chilling on the couch today.  It's always a pretty stressful time for us when she stops eating because she is underweight enough as it is, we don't want her to lose weight!  Fingers crossed it was a one time thing and she is back to school tomorrow for her Valentine's Party, I know she wouldn't want to miss that!  She is currently laughing and watching Ni Hao, Kai-Lan.  Hmm, she certainly doesn't sound sick!

Clint Black on The Doctors

Rett Syndrome is not terribly common and it doesn't get a whole lot of press, so it's pretty exciting when I see something about it on tv!

Please take a couple minutes to watch this video!
