Weekend FunJanuary 11, 2010 by Victoria Strong With the big launch coming up, we have been busy all week finalizing plans for the Chase Community Giving campaign. The thought of what $1 Million could do for SMA is such an enormous motivator -- it gives us chills just to think of the possibilities -- that almost everything else in our life has been put on hold. We are very excited about this week and we hope you are getting excited, too. Be sure to check in first thing in the morning for the big video reveal! And voting begins on FRIDAY, JANUARY 15th!!!
Fortunately, with all major items crossed off the list by Friday night and after not leaving the house for several days, we were thrilled to get out together as a family on Saturday afternoon. I feel a tad guilty writing this since most of the world is freezing right now, but it was a warm 70 degrees all weekend, with a slight chilly breeze, and we simply had to walk down to the wharf. Gwendolyn was in heaven -- a walk with both Mommy and Daddy, a sunny day, her mini horse in her purse -- and we were off. It is a good long walk from our house to the beach and back, but it felt amazing to get some fresh air on such a gorgeous day.
And then today was an extra special treat as we got to spend time with our wonderful friends Will, Daalia, and their darling son, Laith. Will and Bill got to go golfing at Rancho San Marcos. This was a very special treat for both of them as they are both avid golfers who, as very devoted dads, rarely get to play anymore. While the boys were away, Gwendolyn, Laith, Daalia, and Victoria got to play! We had a picnic in the park, fed the ducks, walked to get cupcakes at Crushcakes, and had an absolutely splendid Sunday! Gwendolyn had such a fun time with Laith that she skipped her nap by a good 3 hours -- she didn't want to miss out on a second of the fun.
We are feeling very refreshed after a nice weekend and are ready to hit the ground running this week. Can't wait to hear what you think about the big reveal!
