Relay for Life 2009...

We had the best time at Relay for Life this year. I even got my husband hooked.
We are both convinced we are going to be part of a team next year. B/c I came in at the last minute this year I wasn't able to be on a team. I kind of hooked up w/ one and put my sponsorship money w/ theirs but I wasn't really a part of their team. Here are some pics I took...
This is a group of Survivors. The survivors wore purple shirts, and had chain links of how many years they had survived and had colors that represented different things.

The Survivors did the 1st lap to start the Relay..

This is the King and Queen, aren't they adorable?

Then she put her crown on Sis:)

This is one of the kids' favorite people. She was all of their Sunday School teacher when they were younger. Sis just graduated o/o her class, I cried. Her family has had a team every year for years, wish I'd known sooner:)

My FAVE shirts!!! They had a team called BOWLING FOR BOOBIES! I never got a pic of the front, but it had 2 bowling balls, heehee...

Me and Scott home after walking for 2 hours..we don't look too bad do we?? We came home for a little while b/c the kids needed a break. (just the kids...ha ha)

The kids all got glow sticks as the sun went down. I had no idea it was so fair like. We walked all night, but there were games and so much stuff there to raise more money and have fun. It was great to be together as a family all day too.

Setting up for the luminaria (sp?) You can buy a bag and decorate it in honor of a loved on you've lost. They line them, put sand in the bottom and put a candle inside.

I was playing w/ my camera to try to get a good pic of them after the sun went down w/o a flash....I didn't do too was actually much darker than this, and this is no flash, it was a different setting, I don't even know what I did.

Scott hanging out at the end of the night....

The thing I liked the most about this night was at the Survivors ceremony one of the woman that spoke she talked about carrying the torch for another. She gave practical examples that people did for her when she was fighting her battle. The whole day was so touching and it felt great to be a part of it.
