Susan G Komen 3 Day for the Cure

I never met my grandma. She passed away before I was born. But I know that she was the most beautiful woman in the world, and my mommy loved her very much. Sometimes people get sick, and I don't know why they go away, but they just can't hang on anymore and God takes them from us. But mommy says we don't have to forget them, we find ways to honor them.

So last weekend, my mommy and I walked the Susan G Komen 3 Day for the Cure in San Diego in honor of grandma! We raised $2300 to walk 60 miles in 3 days. It was tiring and exciting and made me feel super happy at the same time.

We camped out in our own private pink tent along the water from Del Mar through La Jolla, passed Mission Beach and Pacific Beach and ended in downtown San Diego. It was a great adventure!

Along the way we made a few friends, and the whole community came out to cheer us on. We were nicely taken care of by volunteers who made sure mommy and I stopped to rest every few miles and gave us snacks so we wouldn't get too tired or hungry. We even got to collect stickers along the way! Mommy cried. It was a powerful and emotional journey to see thousands of people walking together for the same no baby will ever again have to say I never met my grandma.

The Pumpkin Patch

For some adults, Fall and Halloween mean time to dress up and party. But for baby teddy bears like me, it mean trick-or-treating and Pumpkin Patch fun! It was so cool, so many pumpkins big and small. Mommy let me climb all over the huge pumpkins!

There were carnival rides like a choo choo train, and real ponies! Even a petty zoo where I can visit the baby chicks, bunnies, and goats. We ate nachos and got our face painted. Mommy even bought a baby pumpkin for me to take home. I love small trips to local fairs and patches! They are mini vacations mommy and I need in between our big adventures :)
