Thank you to everyone for making Jaden's "Celebration of Life" party such a great time. We had just over 100 people stop by to show their support. Also, thank you to all who were not able to make it but kept us all in their thoughts and prayers through out the day.

Of course this was one of the hottest days of the summer but we had a large canopy and a nice breeze so it did not feel so bad. We had 2 different music groups there. We had The Rena Haus band http://www.renahaus.com . They were wonderful and played a great variety of music from blues to folk to country. We also had a quartet called "After Midnight" http://www.myspace.com/aftermidnightquartet . In this quartet was Steve, Jaden's primary nurse whom our family has become very close with. They were absolutely wonderful and put us all in complete relaxation. Thank you to both of these wonderful groups.

As well as having live music, we also had a dunk tank which everyone loved and it was a nice way to cool off in the heat. Plus, Party Time Inflatables also brought a huge octapus bouncer to jump in http://www.partytimeinflatablegames.com.

It was a completely perfect day. Thanks again to all for your support wether in person or in mind. Here are pictures from the party. Hold your cursor over the picture to read the caption.

Jaden is doing wonderful and now weights 11lbs. 2oz. He is truely a "superstar". Yeah for Jaden.

Love to you all, Steph and family

We had a fun time there, even in the heat. I didn't get a chance to sign the guestbook, though, since I didn't think of it until we were in a hurry to leave. I can get it later, right?
