Support Team Kendell

Our family and friends will be walking again this year in the Great Strides - A Walk to Cure Cystic Fibrosis. Support Team Kendell by either walking, donating... or both :) It is a fun lieasure walk, with food and prizes... we'd love to have you!
Here is our letter with some information on the fundraising efforts:

Dear Family and Friends,
Its time once again for the annual “Great Strides – A walk to Cure Cystic Fibrosis.” Thank you so much for your generous donations last year. Finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis means a great deal to us because one of our own family members has been diagnosed with CF.

Kendell was diagnosed with CF when she was six months old. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease where defective genes create thick mucus in the lungs and digestive tract. This thick mucus leads to chronic and life-threatening lung infections and impairs digestion. Cystic Fibrosis currently affects 30,000 children in the United States. Currently there is no cure.

Kendell is now 8 years old and is doing well due to the wonderful doctors who treat her and the continuous research being done by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Scientists are closer than ever to finding a cure, and with your donations we can help. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been voted the #1 health charity in a study done by the New York Times.
Our family will be participating in the annual CF walk on May 22nd at the MTC Park in Ogden. You can participate by either collecting pledges and walking with us or by making a donation. Please help us find a cure for this disease!

Thank you,

I am sending my donation of
$25.00_____ $50.00_____ $100.00_____ $200.00_____ Other_______

$250.00 ______ A sign with your company’s logo will be placed along the walkway.

Please make checks payable to CFF (Cystic Fibrosis Foundation)

nine years

I can't believe another year has come and gone since I married Bryce. I'm starting to feel first hand, what it feels like to get a little older, married nine years, what? It's been a great journey and I wouldn't have done it any other way. Today was a special anniversary, it being Easter Sunday, and LDS conference, so we did our celebrating yesterday. We had a late lunch early dinner at Rodizios, then off to the spa where we were treated like royalty. 90 minute couples massages and then 60 minute facials and of course it never seems long enough. It was an expensive date when all said and done, maybe next year it would be cheaper to just get me a diamond or something. wink wink. I'm just sayin. ANYWAY. I think of the Adam Sandler song you used to sing to me, if I'am going to get old, "I wanna grow old with you" I love you, thanks for being my rock, my best friend, my jokster, and most of all my husband. Looking forward to what the future brings us.......

Here are some pictures of our day nine years later,
