Family trip to Hocking Hills Park!

A few weekends ago I spent the entire weekend with my new extended family at Hocking Hills Park in Ohio. It was absolutely beautiful! Fall is my favorite time of year and the leaves were absolutely stunning! I have never seen such a masterpiece of nature anywhere! There were caves and rocks, waterfalls and lakes... I can't wait to go back next year! Here are just some of the amazing photos we captured while we were there!!!

Aden's Angels - Our team for the 2009 Walk Now for Autism Speaks

UPDATE: We had over 6,000 walkers at the event and raised over $340,000 in Columbus alone! Wow! Great job everyone! :)
This past Sunday, October 11th we participated in the 2009 Walk Now for Autism Speaks event here in Columbus. This was our first year to do this walk and it was really a great event! Our team was "Aden's Angels" named after my son Aden, who was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at 15 months old. He is now 3 1/2 yrs old and attending a full day preschool program in our local public school district. He is doing wonderfully there!!!

We had a great turnout for our team too! The members were:
Myself (Lola) - Team Captain
Jaime - my mother, Aden's "Nana"
Jeff - my husband, "Daddy Jeffy"
Lynn - my mother-in-law, "Grandma Lamb"
Ron - my father-in-law, "Papa Lamb"
Sonny - Ron's best friend from childhood, our "Team Co-Captain" :)
Michelle - my sister-in-law
Janet - one of Lynn's best friends
Trish - another one of Lynn's best friends
Beth - another one of Lynn's best friends

Here I am with Sonny, Jeff, my mom Jaime and Aden all bundled up! It was cold that day!

Here I am with my Pooky Bear the day of the walk! I was wearing all my Autism Awareness jewelry, and my hair scrunchie I made too!
Here is Sonny - I called him our Team Captain because he proudly held up our signs we made before the walk. They had a few tables set up with free signs and paints to make your own signs - unfortunately I was not very good at decorating with just a sponge (as compared to using an actual paint brush, which they did not have) - so my sign was really ugly! LOL! My husband was embarrassed to hold it! Haha! Sonny was such a good sport! He held both mine and my moms signs the whole time! :) This one is the one my mother made. :)
Here I am with my husband Jeff - we were sporting OSU and Autism Awareness! :)

Here is Lynn with her best friends - they were so sweet and funny! I'm so glad they came out!

So we had a great day and we raised over $700 for the walk! Thanks to everyone that made donations and purchased Autism Awareness jewelry from me to raise money for the walk! :)

Hi there! My name is Lola and I'm the proud mother of a wonderful autistic child. We are participating in the 2009 Walk Now for Autism Speaks in Columbus, Ohio - and I'm selling my handmade autism jewelry as a fundraiser to raise money for our team. I'm donating half of all the autism jewelry sales towards our team for the walk. I named the team after my son, Aden -- "Aden's Angels" - isn't that cute? I love to make jewelry, and I am a huge advocate for awareness, understanding and acceptance. I wear my jewelry with pride and I always appreciate the opportunity I get to share with someone about autism who may have simply noticed my jewelry, but not have any idea what it stands for. :)

So, if you know anyone whose family has been impacted by Autism, please send them to my site - and they can help donate money towards Autism Speaks simply by purchasing a beautiful piece of art that will help to raise awareness!


Thanks for reading this! God Bless You!
