Saturday night I joined my good friend Jolene and her family at the lakefront for Light the Night - a walk to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. This cause is definitley near and dear to my heart. My Dad is a Lymphoma survivor and Jolene's daughter, Samantha, is a Leukemia survivor. This yearly event is a chance to celebrate their life and remember those who are no longer with us.
It was a beautiful day! We had a wondeful time before the walk looking at the lake and taking pictures.
Here is Samantha getting her banner ready for the big event...
The colors were just amazing that day! The trees were golden and reflected perfectly in the lake.
Samantha looks beautiful next to these golden mums...
Here's Samantha's little sis! Isn't she the cutest!
and her little bro (my boyfriend) was flirting as usual...
At dusk - the walk started!
I just love the glow of the balloons in the darkness.
After the walk - we had hotdogs and chips and then went back to Jolene's place for yummy pumpkin muffins. It was such a great night!
