BERT’S BIG ADVENTURE – 2010

Wow, what a trip!  I don’t know how the folks at Bert’s Big Adventure do it, but they keep one-upping themselves.  Last year’s adventure was incredible, and they came up with even more outstanding surprises for the families this year.  As with every BBA, it was VIP all the way for the kids and their families.  Riding in limos, flights in chartered planes, many special events….the list goes on, and no stone is left unturned.

For any readers who aren’t familiar with BBA, you should check out their website HERE.  Each year they select some very special families to take on this trip, and I’ve been lucky to see twice now how much impact is made by all the planning, donations, and caring that goes into this event.

It was so lovely getting to know these wonderful families, and watch them enjoy a few days away from the trials of their everyday lives.  For a little while the stress, worry, and doctor visits are put on hold and replaced with excitement, laughs, and play time.

I have to shout-out to my pal and fellow photographer, Robin Nathan.  She came along on this year’s trip, and it was great having her talent and personality along with us.

 

 

Thanks to the BBA folks and all the fantastic families for all the truly magical moments!

    Tiffany - Well….I should know better than to look at your pics and not expect to be affected! At first my favorite was the little girl looking out the window with Tinkerbell, but then I saw all the Princess pics and then the pic of the hug between the child and Bert – you are so fabulous! Thanks for sharing the joy and the inspiration.

    Susie - Once again, you’ve done an outstanding “job” of capturing the spirit of the event. I sat here with a big Goofy grin on my face as I looked at those gorgeous faces. You really catch that joy. It’s magic!
