When Cows Fly

Thanks to our friends at the Starlight Children's Foundation, we enjoyed a beautiful boat ride and "tailgate" party on Lady Bird Lake today. The weather was perfect for the trip and didn't turn cloudy until we pulled up to the dock to disembark. We were joined by several families from the clinic and one of the families who was at Give Kids the World with us, so it was nice to catch up and see how well all of the kids are doing. There was great Mexican food and goody bags that included bubbles - just right for the windy day. We always have fun at Starlight events and appreciate all the donors and volunteers that help make them happen!

Wait - what's that hanging from the Congress Ave bridge in the background?

Why it's ... Bat Cow!

Yep, as part of the fast-approaching CowParade Austin Auction this weekend, this awesome piece will be sold to the highest bidder in support of Superhero Kids, which provides funding directly to the Children's Blood and Cancer Center (ye olde clinic) to enhance the quality of life for patients and their families during treatment. Sam and John and all of their volunteers have provided lots of fun activities and such positive energy to the infusion room - it's always great to see their smiling faces! We're thrilled that their organization (which was founded the same month that Georgia was diagnosed) is getting this recognition and support, so if you're looking for the perfect thing to finish your house, go bid on a cow! Oh, and Jay Leno will be there.

Off to the clinic on Monday to check counts - have a great week, y'all!
