Nielson Family Fundraiser


Saturday morning we took our kids, and Jen's kids, to Bounce U for a fundraiser to help the Nielson Family. If you haven't heard about them, Stephanie and Christian were in a airplane crash on August 16th and miraculously survived, but were burned pretty badly. You can read more about Stephanie, her husband and their four children on her blog http://www.nieniedialogues.blogspot.com/. Her family has started re-posting old posts she wrote and they are very inspiring. You can also read her sister Jane's blog http://blog.cjanerun.com/ who has bravely taken in three of Stephanie and Christian's children to help raise along with their own newborn, while they recover. You can also click on the links I have on my sidebar if you would like to read more about them and the rest of their wonderful family. Below are some pictures I took at the fundraiser.
