Today was super fun! There is so much to show you!
This was the boys' second flight of their lives! Traveling always seemed intimidating with Rocco's diabetes. Not even just the getting there but also the being there. Long walking parks, hot temps and junk food are the trifecta of a diabetic's worst day. However, flying is always fun! Big grins.
What a view!
A quick run out for breakfast before our two separate days began.
"Look mom this is where we'll be on Wednesday! The Capitol Building!!!"
Things I never thought I would hear...
JDRF Children's Congress Build-A-Bear and Lenny the Medtronic mascot!
Time to go to work!
"Wow! What's all this about?"
161 type one diabetic children all sang "Promise to Remember Me" with Crystal Bowersox an winner from American Idol!!
Meanwhile, little cutie and Dad taking in the sights!
I love this one he looks so little!
"Mom! We went to see where Abe Lincoln was shot!"
After spending their days seperatly, it was fun to see the two bear cubs compare notes and horse play in the pool!
Tomorrow, Rocco is giving the Ford family (from Ford Motor Company!) an award to thank them for raising so much money for JDRF! They are the largest supporters this year! Also, we get to meet eleven celebrities that have or are related to people who have type one diabetes. Here's the line up!
I am so proud of my little man! He has to come out of shell and be mature enough to handle the large responsibility of representing children from all over the world who live and thrive with Type 1 Diabetes, all the while be compelling enough to ask for funding. He won't understand what he is doing right now for another 10-20 years. But I am really excited to see the proud grin on his face when he does!
Off to bed, I'll post more tomorrow!
