Yes, it’s actually happening…Little Dude’s Make-A-Wish to meet Lebron James was granted!

Thank you to EVERYONE who helped make this happen…including my readers who tweeted out our plea, my friends who made calls or sent emails to their “connections” on our behalf, and of course to the Miami Heat and Make-A-Wish, who are about to hugely brighten the lives of 35 kids who have been battling serious medical conditions.

I am so excited for all the kids and of course Little Dude…be sure to check back in with my blog next week when I post all about this experience. Right now, all we know is we are going to the American Airlines arena at 7:30 Friday morning and we will be hanging out there until 2pm…AND, on Saturday night, we all are going to the Miami Heat game versus Cleveland (Lebron’s former team)! It should be an unforgettable weekend for all the families…I hope to have lots of good photos too!

Until then, I leave you with Will Smith and his video, “Welcome To Miami” which I’ll be singing the whole way there tomorrow!

Emily that is such great news! I was hoping a little prodding in the right ears would do the trick. You will love the weather down here. It has been in the mid-80’s all week. I’m sure you’ve seen how tan I am since being here. You will be glad to get away from the snow. I know I don’t miss it. Would love to see you but I know you’ll be busy when here and it is all about Little Dude.

I didn’t realize you were still in Florida Eric…make sure that great weather doesn’t go anywhere! And yes, will be a busy weekend, but I promise to post photos from all the festivities!
