May 22nd pictures..Finally!

If you ever had an inkling to watch one of my slideshows, this should be the one! This is a compilation of photos that I have received from our Ally's Army Battles Cancer event that we held back on May 22nd. Many of the pictures were taken by professional (and awesome) photographer and friend Erin Cobb. She captures little details perfectly. And so many pictures of Ally! Other pictures were sent to me by friends. Thank you all.

After watching it, I am filled with pride for my daughter. I am proud of my Dad. And I am proud of my slideshow. Enjoy watching it!
PS: The song used in the background is a piano compilation that I fell in love with last fall. Many nights while writing this blog, this was the music that you could hear coming out of my office. It has inspired me countless times and is the only song I considered using to show these proud pictures and celebrating the culmination of our year. The artist is named Jon Schmidt.

  6. Tears. Tears of joy, of pride (you are so strong) and jealousy because I couldn't be there. ; ) Erin C and Janelle A. were there as well? Oh how I would loved to meet all of you in person.

    Here is to strength, perseverance and prayer.
