Apple Fest 2009

Morgan sure has the Apple Fest Spirit!!!

I'm embarrassed that it has taken so long to report on Apple Fest this year. We had an absolute BLAST and are are already looking forward to next year. We had such a great turnout and and are so appreciative of the many generous people that came out to support this great cause. We didn't have the "Kate Rosenvall Foundation" set up for this year, but are working on having it in place for next year. Since our daughter Kate spent so much of her short little life at Primary Children's Medical Center, we want to donate the proceeds of Apple Fest each year to something special; whether it's something the hospital is in need or to help a family(s) who are in need of financial help for medical bills. We are so excited for the turnout we had and the many, many donations that were given. A HUGE "Thank You" to all those who participated in Apple Fest this year as well as all the many volunteers who helped make this event happen. Stay tuned for the donation grand total.

We kicked off Friday night with a dutch oven dinner and live entertainment by "Switchback" playing anything from Lynyrd Skynyrd to ACDC. The food was great, the entertainment was great, fun was had by all.

Uncle Greg made a great dancing partner.

Hampshire's got some smooth moves!!

This year we added a 10k and children's 1 mile run in addition to the 5k. There were close to 100 participants this year.

Teresa and Zach coming in strong!

The Nielsen Crew!

Kirstin and Weston........we sure did miss Motley this year!

Face painting sure was a favorite by all. Is that Tyson or Tanner??? Not quite sure who this handsome little skeleton is!

We look forward to seeing you next year!!!!
