OPERATION KIDS!!!!!

Lance and I were invited by my wonderful parents to a black tie event. It was so fun to get dressed up! It was the Lifetime Achievement Awards event given by Operation Kids, a nonprofit organization. The award was given to John Walsh (America's Most Wanted host). The night was AMAZING! The host for the night was the President from 24. (I don't know his real name :)) It was so fun to see him in person cause I am a die hard fan of 24. The night started off with a delicious dinner and great enternainment. The award was given to John Walsh and then they asked everybody at their tables to fill out their cards to donate to the Operation Kids Foundation. Someone that looked pretty important came and grabbed my dad from our table and he went somewhere with them. All of the sudden I looked up at the jumbo tron and there was my dad... They were recognizing my dad for his generous donations to the Operation Kids Foundation.... IT WAS AWESOME! My dad is seriously my hero and the best example to me and I admire him so much for all he does for not only our family but so many other people. The night finished off with the country artist Collin Raye and also a few songs by Jim Brickman. AND THEN..... they announced that David Archuleta was in the audience. Oh my gosh, I love that kid! And to my amazement I looked up and he was at the table right in front of us. Hello how did I miss him. So I had to get a picture. A very memorable night for Lance and I. Thank you so much dad and mom for giving us the opportunity to experience this incredible event and Thank you Grandma Dona for taking care of our kids while Lance and I had a wonderful time. PS, Happy 26th birthday to my honey. I love you baby!
PROM 2008. OK JUST KIDDING WE HAD TO GET A PICTURE OF US BEFORE WE LEFT FOR THE EVENING :)
