the "Walk for Babies"

Yesterday was a good day for the walk. Not too hot, not too cold. No rain (that's amazing!) This was our first year walking for March of Dimes, walk for babies. The money raised went towards equipping NICU's with the latest equipment and therapy for the little babies. It was exciting to see all the people! There were hundreds of walkers. I can't imagine how much money was raised.

Ready for the walk: Adam likes my pink hat, i decided not to fight it.
The Armadillo gave us free kids meal tokens for Texas Roadhouse:
Ann Shannon from News 8 was the MC for the preemie parade; that's when all the NICU graduates went up front and got their medals. She called the kids names, one at a time (or 2 at a time for twins) and said their birth weight and how many weeks early they were. It was very cool.
Then we walked!
....and walked
....and walked...
and walked! Adam walked the whole thing. Ben and Brad about 2/3's of it.
It was a privilege to be a part of this event!

That's awesome Sherry! So glad you could be part of it yesterday. It's wonderful to be able to support something you believe in so fully - and that you know is really worthwhile!
