Grilling for a Benefit

Nathan was asked to be the grill man at a cancer benefit. He agreed since he loves to grill. Although, a little disappointed once he found out he was only grilling hot dogs, he still did it. So as the grilling began I chased the boys everywhere while they played. We made our way back over to Nathan and I noticed he was taking ice from the cooler and sort of washing his hands and arms. At first I just thought he was cleaning himself off. Then I thought “Oh no, did he burn himself?” So I went over and asked what he was doing. Poor guy had hives up and down his arms and hands. Turns out the hot dogs had chicken in them. I had never seen him react like this before. He had cooked chicken on the grill for the boys and myself and never had a reaction. So he basically took a step back and let the other two guys handle the dogs until it was over. I wonder what will happen next time he does chicken for us.

A few side notes while at the benefit:

Charlie asked if he could go request the Christian band to play Luke Bryan’s “Rain is a Good Thing”

Charlie was later blown up by a storm trooper. He was so excited.

The benefit was for http://www.facebook.com/pages/A-Million-Kisses-to-the-Moon/152322038167443?sk=wall  – a children’s book inspired by McKenzie Brownlee—-Its a celebration and memory of a courageous little girl who fought a STRONG battle with cancer.
