Hats Off To You!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Beth made a special request this year for her birthday.  Instead of gifts, she asked her friends to instead bring hats that we could donate to Children's Hospital.  We got the idea from Hats Off To Cancer, and collected a cheery variety of 24 hats.  They each are given to kids losing their hair as they go through their cancer treatments.  A few reasons this holds a special meaning to us made it a true pleasure to support this need.

Yesterday we were able to head up to Children's in Seattle to drop off our donation.  They are always so sweet in the way they receive donations, and really are generous in showing their appreciation.

Sweet picture.  I remember leaving the hospital with Beth when she was discharged and stopping to "pet" the animals on the mural behind her.  Especially for such an animal lover, this amazing mural made her eyes widen with wonder!

Then, since we were oh-so-close, we made a stop at the lovely Trophy Cupcakes.  I have to admit, it failed to wow me this trip.  Doggone it, but I decided to be adventurous (I know better!) and try one of their specials.  You know the scene from "Big" where Tom Hanks tastes something and then tries to wipe his tongue clean?  That's what I wanted to do.  It was blech.  Oh, well.  Lesson learned.  Stick with a sure thing.  Next time!

A perfect place to end this!
Take a moment and stare at those lovely choices.  Mmmm.
