Joey and "Muddy Buddys"

We just had a really nice weekend. Our good friend Mende came to visit Joey from Minneapolis and she and Joey fell instantly in love. And, as with all the ladies Joey loves, he smiled and laughed for her all weekend (which of course, mommy can't seem to make him do!). Mende's mom, Charlotte Price also came to visit Joey and again...he smiled and laughed for her. We had an amazing time.

On Sunday, we went to a Jeep Club event, hosted by Muddy Buddy's Jeep Wrangler Club of Dayton, Ohio. Joey's uncle Rick is a member. It was, by far, the most amazing afternoon. We met tons of wonderful, kind people who donated ALL of the profits from their meet and greet to Joey. And, the winner of the raffle ALSO gave all of her money to Joey.

We want to make sure that anyone reading about Joey knows what a wonderful group of people Muddy Buddys Jeep Wrangler Club of Dayton is. They barely know Joey's uncle Rick, yet donated all of their proceeds to Joey. AND...they have already offered to host another event for Joey. To all of our new Muddy Buddys friends - thank you. Words cannot describe the feeling of joy you brought to our family. I know that the world is filled with good people after spending time with all of you.

And for those of you in Dayton/Cincinnati area, the group is hosting a park clean up next Saturday, 4/19. They will be particating in the Five Rivers Metro Park Clean up.

You can check out Muddy Buddys website at to find out about this great group of people and the park clean up next week.

Once we download more photos tomorrow, I'll post some of Joey at the Muddy Buddy's event.

Thank you all again,
Love Joey, Ron and Rachael

Muddy Buddys really is a great "family" of people. I only joined the club a month ago, and I've only met handful of club members. It's really pretty humbling.

They're also involved with an upcoming Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society, which just happens to be the same day as Joey's B-Day party, May 3rd.

Here's a couple links for the Relay:

This past November, they teamed up with another Jeep club for their first annual Toys for Tots campaign.

Let me try that first link again, when you do a copy and paste, take the section break out between "RelayForLife/" and "RelayForLifeOhioDivision" and the break between "22978&type=" and "fr_information":
