A Weekend Full of Fun

Since there will be much to document this week, I thought I’d slip in a quick update on our weekend that included a homecoming halftime, good time with dear friends, a camp fundraiser AND Monster Ball!!  I just love fall…the cooler weather, the fun festivities and all the yummy comfort food!  🙂

Max had the honor of being a member of the 2016 Homecoming court.  The football game and crowning of the queen happened on Friday night.  The king is crowned at the dance which isn’t until November 5th so Max can’t hang up his royal hat just yet.

Rolf, Rudy and I headed down to LA Saturday morning for the annual Camp del Corazon Family Festival & Reunion fundraiser.  Thanks to the generosity of “Team Rudy”, we were the 2nd top fundraiser!  Woo Hoo!!!  Way to go Team Rudy!

It’s always a huge encouragement to connect with Rudy’s former CTICU nurses…

Then, on Sunday, we went to the annual Monster Ball party with many of Rudy’s special needs buddies and the UCSB Gauchos!

Thank you Gauchos!!

The Gauchos’ head coach has a son and daughter who went to preschool with Rudy.  Shortly after we arrived, Coach brought his son over to Rudy to say “hi”…his son took one look at Rudy and said to his dad “That’s not the same Rudy!”.  Ha Ha  I LOVE IT!!!

Olivia and Wilson had big weekends too…

…and Wilson competed in the Task Force South Ranger Challenge competition. His team finished in 1st place earning them a trip to Ft. Lewis in a few weeks for the next round of competition.

It was a big weekend for the whole family.

Next up?  Rudy’s triennial IEP meeting tomorrow, cardiology appointment on Wednesday, and a visit to the pumpkin patch on Thursday!  Yay Fall!!  🙂
