The Buddy Walk was a huge success!! A large group came out on October 6th to show their support for my nephew, Vinnie... and the donations are still coming in! We are so thankful for everyone's generosity to such a GREAT cause. Pictures coming soon! Here's one to start - our team pin (designed by Aimee)...
"I now pronounce you Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Miller" :) :)
And Drew with his parents the day after the wedding... I'm so happy to be a part of their family now :)
Drew with his beautiful Mom (and my new mother-in-law, Lida :)
Erin's hubby took this one (thanks, Petey Pab!)... Our photographers were taking our picture with the Domino Sugar sign in the background. I cannot wait to see how that turned out!
Our FABULOUS Bridal Party (we love you guys!!) right before we were announced into the reception (this pic is missing the Maid of Honor - where were ya, Linz?)
Oh - and in case you were wondering, Drew and the groomsmen (and all of the other Filipino men & boys at the wedding) wore Barong Tagalogs (or Barongs, for short) instead of tuxes. Barongs are the traditional formal garment of the Philippines. It was actually Drew's idea to wear them, and I am so glad he suggested it! I think all the guys looked very handsome in them :)
His mohawk and "Wild Child" t-shirt just kill me! :) -- Photo by Bill LaCosta.
Drew & I are participating in our second Down Syndrome Buddy Walk this October. As some of you know, my nephew Vinnie was born with Down Syndrome last March. He is the SWEETEST baby ever...I love him with every bone in my body. The money we raise will go to the National Down Syndrome Society and the Down Syndrome Network of Montgomery County, and will help support programs for people with Down syndrome in our area. We want Vinnie to have the resources he needs as he get older!
Please consider joining our team and walking with us (it's only a mile), or sponsoring us with a small tax-deductible donation. We would love your support!
