Move That Bus!

The Queen City was buzzing with celebrities. Extreme Makeover Home Edition has been here working all week with local builders and volunteers to build an awesome new house for a family who's children go to school with mine.

Yesterday, we went to help "Move that Bus" in support of The King Family.
They have a
truly remarkable story. We are so glad they have been given this opportunity.
I took my three older girls and my niece Chandler. When we first arrived everyone was pumped up to see the family's reaction. They filmed the crowd screaming while we pretended to "move the bus" over and over and over and over. It was a very hot and very confusing to my little ones. The limo pulls up and we yelled with excitement. Nope. Still filming. After about an hour the family arrives and the bus finally moves. It was such a touching moment to see their reaction. Congrats King Family!!!

Although my girls weren't actually workers, they did look adorable in their hard hats!

There were local celebrities as well.

It was great meeting the design team and getting a little face time with Ty.

It was a wonderful day. Thanks Extreme Makeover for recognizing one of our own!
