I tried real hard to post “Part 2” of Rudy’s birthday last night before bed but, alas, I wasn’t successful! I kept falling asleep as I waited for photos to download! Ha Ha A full day it was but we managed to squeeze in some celebrating of Rudy along the way and he certainly felt the love from family and friends both near and far! For ten years, the Rescue Mission has held it’s annual Bayou benefit out at Dos Pueblos Ranch. It’s always a memorable event, but it was especially so three years ago when Rudy arrived early. As surreal as it might have felt to leave our newborn in the ICU at UCLA it was comforting to be among so many friends that have only become more dear to us through this journey. So to have the event fall on Rudy’s birthday this time around made for a very special day. Despite his apprehensions about crowds, Rudy did have fun going out to the Ranch to supervise the preparations.
