Our 15 Seconds of Fame

We made it on TV for a few seconds this morning. Channel 3 was running about an hour behind, but the babies hung in there for us and we got to say a few words about how the MDA is financially assisted our family with the babies' AFO's.

Our friends the Keeney family met us there, and the kids all had a blast. The clowns, with their balloon art and face painting, were the real stars this morning. I grabbed a business card from them, because Jenna is so in love with Juji Fruit The Clown that we may have to hire him for her birthday party next year.

There lots of companies who had booths and were giving away free food and gifts. Rubios and Chick Fil A and Famous Daves BBQ were favorites, plus Verizon and Hubbard Swim School, Bass Pro Shops, Petco, Home Depot, the list goes on. Riverview Toyota is really a standup firm, and not actually too far away (Loop 101 at Dobson, just east of the Loop 202). They hosted the satellite event today, where we were at, and they were just great. It was a great time, and the kids had a blast and we really appreciate their involvement with the MDA.

Little does Chick Fil A realize that these two vastly prefer McDonald's chicken nuggets.

  1. Oh Cass, what great pictures. :) (Snot flew by the way on the "completely sane clown posse!")

    No kidding about the BFF....look at the glee being held in!

    You all are always---more than 15 minutes--- famous by me. :)

  2. Aww!

    Glee being held in, indeed.

    And I'm glad you enjoyed the clown posse caption. Can you believe that occured to me only casually, after I'd uploaded the pic and was almost ready to hit "submit"?? A rare moment of pop culture reference genius.

  3. That's a pretty awesome Ariel the clown made!
    Looks like y'all had fun!

  4. Not only is that the most amazing balloon Ariel imaginable (HIRE THAT CLOWN!) but OMG KITT. OMG. The A-Team rocks and all (you know I have a serious Dirk Benedict weakness) but KITT. Oh how I love KITT.

  5. It looks like you had fun! A little limelight never hurt anyone!
