We had a great time in San Francisco for World Diabetes Day! And we were so diggin' our shirts!
We went out for dinner in the city and ya, we were pretty much a spectacle. Dinner was awesome and we were able to share our story and our blue pride with some other customers at the restaurant and on the street.
I bought the boys these glow sticks/flashlights/whistles for the big day. We had a blast trying to make blue circles with them on the way to the San Francisco Ferry Building...
We made it to the Ferry Building and were a tinsy bit underwhelmed with the blue...but it was cool none the less...
There wern't as many people as I expected, but once we joined the group, the energy was electric. There was such a feeling of community and good will. :)
We got there just in time for the small speeches to commemorate the day. When I saw Manny Hernandez from Tu Diabetes, I felt like a groupie at a rock concert. Ya, he's that great!
And to top it off I met the fabulous Miss Amy from Diabetes Mine. What an awesome woman with a beautiful family to boot. (My camera was on a weird setting.) Her daughter thought it was funny when I told her in my world, her mother was a rock star.
It seriously turned out to be like the best night ever. It couldn't have been nicer. And really Joanne, I could have sold a dozen of our shirts! They were a big hit!
