*Attitude of Gratitude - Day Fourteen* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all...


Today I am grateful for good friends and a good surgeon! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Yesterday we had a FAB DAY! Brookie's surgeon Dr. Hansen had his annual party at the park for his "Laser Kids"..... there was pizza, train rides and a carousel too! Its so nice that Brookie gets to see other kids that "look" like her! :):):):):):):):):):):):):) Then we went and met up with Deana and her family at the Cheesecake Factory as they were in town for the weekend! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Here are some pics from our day! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) First, the party from Dr. Hansen! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)



The cake that Dr. Hansen had for everyone... {{PCH stands for "Phoenix Childrens Hospital"}}

Dr. Hansen and Brookie :)







 The park we were at was a train park :)



 Thanks to the kind lady that was nice enough to take a photo of the four of us when we were standing in line at the train station! :)





Waving to people from the train :)

 *PS* the band aid on her face is because she picked at one of her spots...and I am trying to make sure it doesn't get infected :)





Inside the tunnel! :)


Then we met Deana and family at The Cheesecake Factory!! Sooooooooo happy to see them again... I just love them! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Brookie, Deana and Me :)

  1. Hi Miss Julie...the pictures are so great, looks like fun. What a thoughtful Dr. I really love your hair like that. =)

    and I can't believe anyone would pick on Brookie. Grrr.

    You are obviously having a good weekend. I just got home from my crop... as they say, crop till you drop.. and I'm off to do just that. I'm pooped.

  5. Great photos! :-) I guess I haven't read yesterday's post yet. Sorry to hear that anyone would be mean to Brookie... Sometimes people can be cruel because they lack understanding--I hate it!

  20. Dear Julie, Oh what a wonderful day with Dr. Hansen and the kids, and what a special man he is...and that boy that picked on Brookie is so unlucky he has been brought up with such ignorant parents that have not taught him any better. I hope she is strong and confident after this...I love the pic of Brookie and her friend as they are shopping, looks like two happy shoppers.. and I am glad you met your friend and had a great lunch, just loved seeing these gorgeous photos. Love to you all dear friend. Melxx

  25. How did I miss you posting about the boy who picked on Brookie??? I went back and found it. That is so heartbreaking. I can't believe how cruel kids can be. Big hugs to Brookie. She is such a beautiful girl.
    I had to giggle when I saw the bandaid on her cheek. Sadie "needed" one about a month ago and looked so stinking cute, just like Brookie does.
    I think that is fabulous what her doctor does for those kids.
