Happy 4th of July!

Hello everyone,
Braden had a few firsts this weekend as he enjoyed his first parade, first Libertyfest in Twin Lakes, and his first family reunion (Grandma Lois's side of the family). We'll be making the hike up to the U.P. this week for the 4th of July extravaganza up der. We'll be introducing Braden to the first of many G'rage parties at the LaCombe residence :)

The following link will bring you to a very heart-warming story that was televised on ESPN. It's about a 5 year HLHS kiddo whose dream it is to be a football player. He gets a "WISH" from the "MY WISH" foundation to meet his idol Drew Breese from the New Orlean Saints. Rich and I got to see it twice on ESPN and of course I cried (no bawled) both times. Hopefully your computer will allow you to check out the neat story.
New Pics: Mr. Happy; Post-Libertfest fun with Sydney; life upside down; being a prisoner in his own home - darn steps; "braving" out the fire truck sirens at the parade; post-parade siesta.
Prayer Request: I have been in contact with another HLHS family whose little boy, Gabe, is having his Fontan (3rd surgery) this week. It looks like they'll be operating on the 5th of July. Gabe's Glenn (2nd surgery) recovery was a bit rough as he was in the hospital for 4months. His parents, as you can imagine, are very nervous about this surgery. Please keep this little boy in your prayers this week. Thank you!
Registration forms, hole sponsors, and silent auction items have been coming in. Rich and I get so excited everytime we visit the P.O. box.
Happy 4th of July!

Sure looks like you had a wonderful 4th of July from those smiles I get to see! Thanks for sharing them, as it puts a big smile. It is just what I needed as i wait the last couple days before my little one arrives!
