A day spent with family is always the best!

Sunday was a busy day by any definition!  We joined members of our family in Walking For Hospice and then met up with the rest of the clan to celebrate all the October birthdays. 

This is our second year in participating in the Walk for Hospice.  This wonderful organization has played a big role in our family in recent years.  Both Grandpa and then Grandma Stephens were blessed to have Hospice support when they needed them the most.  The support they gave to our family at that time was priceless.  There is no way we can ever really pay back all they have done for us but we feel like taking part in the Walk is a small way of showing our support.

Andy Zutter, Mark and Mr. Zutter walked as a team and covered at least 3 miles!

Aunt Connie and Mom cross the finish line and brought snacks for the whole table!

Mom, Aunt Connie and Dad come in for a much needed rest.

Abby made the sweetest memory heart for Grandma and Grandpa..  She colored it with hearts and balloons and posted it on the memory board.  Such a cutie pie!

Part of the team takes a break.  It was HOT out there.  Much different than last year when we froze!

I love this picture of Andy and Mark.  They have been friends for over 30 years! Andy was walking with his dad in memory of his mom who passed away last year.

After the walk we all headed over to Aunt Sue and Uncle Keith's to celebrate the October birthdays.  The birthday kids were Mom, Aunt Connie and Uncle Keith.

Alex is telling great-grandma the cupcake he wants.  I think is was the one with the bat ring on top!

Aunt Connie got lots of good smelling lotions and candles. 

Mom with her loot!

Uncle Keith is the "baby" of the bunch!

I've been blessed with the best family ever!  Spending an entire day with them is always the best kind of day!
