3rd Annual Averi Budde Foundation Benefit for Children's Hospital

Today we went to Blue Springs Ranch in Bourbon to a fundraiser for Children's Hospital's CICU and 7W. It was in honor of Averi Budde, a "heart friend" of Connie. She and her twin sister were there along with four or five other heart families we've met through the St. Louis support group, Heart 2 Heart. They had a lot to do and I'm pretty sure we did just about all of it! The kids had a blast. I think Mary Kathleen's favorite thing was the bounce houses and Connie loved the barrel rides. He called it a choo choo train. Mook rode a horse and even up in a helicopter! Can you believe it? After watching us take off, Connie got a little upset thinking I was disappearing. The food was great and so were the friends! Thanks Isom's and Budde's! What a wonderful event!
