This year the Relay for Life was held in Midland. My dad's team from Milesville participated, so Mikaela and I joined him. The opening ceremonies were awesome. It was a beautiful day with 92 degree heat, but it cooled in the evening.
The Milesville Mardi Gras team was selling pies and ice cream, and lap beads.
I made these Luminaries for my mom.
I covered them in lots of pictures.
Others made them for her too.
I made this one for my grandpa Jim.
Mikaela was a trooper. We went to church and she flirted with the little 3 year old in front of us. She walked 4 miles with me after church and finally conked out for the ride home at 11:30!
They had this big lit sign which was neat.
We lit these big paper lanterns and let them go into the night sky.
Mikaela and I walked 4 miles and had a great evening with my dad remembering and celebrating mom's life. Our team raised over $3,000 and all the teams raised over $26,000, which for a small rural area is amazing!
