We were asked to be volunteers for Snowball Express 2011 in Dallas, Texas. Without any hesitation...no looking at our scheduel...we knew we'd make time for this and immediatly said "yes".
I have slept some since being there but will try to cover some of the highlights of the events laid out for the Snowball families.
After this event they all loaded up in buses....a very long line of buses and headed out to Six Flags. Eddie and I knew we wern't up to riding all those rides so we headed back to the hotel for a little rest. Later that evening I managed to get up to the 38th floor in spite of my fear of being up so high. The elevator ride up and down waa terrifying...but I made it! While helping play with the younger ones I made sure to stay far away from the windows but cringed when ever one of the children got close. Eddie was in his ibot chair and had to keep making it go up and down.
Gillys closed to the public for one evening and hosted a special party just for the Snowball families. They had games and foods....lots for the families to do! And to top off the evening Gary Sinise was there with the Lt. Dan Band to play for them! What a night!
Have other pictures but as usual...getting the pictures and words in the right places seems to not be so easy for me! Maybe some day I will learn how this is done.
The entire week end was so rewarding. We are truly blessed to be able to do what we do. We plan to volunteer again for this year...even though we came home very tired...we will do it again and again as long as we are able. You can google Snowball Express and learn more about this organization and how you can help if you would like to.
