Weekend Light

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.

The colors were just amazing that day! The trees were golden and reflected perfectly in the lake.

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!

Those are some ridiculously cute kids. And how are the leaves turning faster down there than up here in PA? Does not compute!
