|Six in the Hood||
These two ladies are not only beautiful on the outside, but on the inside as well. Kimberly (the one without the hat) had a dream; literally, she had a dream ~ her dad came to her and told her to start Camp Better America. She listened to what her dad told her as any good girl would do. She made a phone call to her cousin - he in turn connected Kim with Kathleen, the one in the hat (who is she kidding, she is from Jersey! ;). From that day on these two amazing women have been hard at work to make Camp Better America a reality, and that is exactly what they did the first weekend in May.
Our family had the best of both worlds at Camp Better America. Not only were we volunteers, but we got to participate in all the activities as well. Upon arrival we helped set things up....
I was lucky enough to drive the film crew around while they filmed the grounds, our Jeep & my mad driving skills weren’t quite what they were used to , but we made it work.
These are the fabulous ladies that cooked for us all weekend! We wouldn't have survived if it hadn't been for them!
Here we are getting ready to check out the beautiful Tesoro Escondido Ranch overlooking the Brazos River in Mineral Wells, TX which was donated for the weekend by owner Dudley Hall!
I even caught Mike working hard a couple of times!
There was so much more that went on behind the scenes of Camp Better America than what I showed you. I don't know half of what went into this to make this camp happen but what I do know is that it took over a year with countless hours and sleepless nights to make CBA a reality. Thanks to Kim and Kathleen for having a dream and doing something about it. Military families for years to come will forever be changed because you two shared a dream and made it a reality.
