I travel the world and am truly amazed with the sights, cultures, and people but in my eyes there is no place like home.

Fundraising, Family, Football, and Fun

Last weekend I ventured to Kansas City with my parents and Cole. Friday night we attended a dinner at JJ’s on the Plaza where we enjoyed wonderful food and drinks. All proceeds went to support downs syndrome through the First Down for Downs Syndrome organization (the dinner was purchased at the wine auction in April).

Saturday morning we awoke bright and early (or at least it felt bright and early after the late night at JJ’s) and headed to the Chiefs stadium for the Step up for Downs Syndrome Walk (formerly known as the Buddy walk) to walk as part of “Max’s Birthday Bash” Team. Here is my cousin Max.

We had a great crew for the walk and the weather turned out awesome.

Kansas City has one of the largest down syndrome walks in the country – impressive.

Sunday was Chiefs Football. It started off quite fun with great weather and loads of team spirit.

However by half time the team spirit had faltered due to the score and the horrible rainy weather. It was Support the Troops day and the half time show was amazing. A great reminder that we must support those who are risking their lives and leaving the comforts of home to keep the rest of us safe. (I sat in seats far away from the camera so unfortunately no photos)

A great weekend spent raising money for a great cause, spending time with family, and relaxing a bit before this hectic week of campaigning.
