Arthritis Walk Today!

What a perfect day for the Arthritis Walk! The event was at the zoo this morning, and it was a great success! Lots of walkers, and a lot of money was raised for the Arthritis Foundation. The kids were on their BEST behavior--I couldn't believe how great it was. We even had some time afterward to watch the penguins being fed! Brent had to work today, and we were sad he missed it.

This is a picture of us with our friend Patti--it was great to have her to walk with today! The walkers that battle arthritis were given a blue ball cap to wear, and they had a group photo taken for the event. I couldn't believe how many young people and KIDS battle arthritis! It was amazing to see.

Our little "walkers"--Blake and Graham napped for a while.

Sophie was enjoying herself (and the sucker Maria gave her!). Isn't this the cutest hairbow??

Afterward we went to lunch with Patti, Laura, Brian, Maria, Sarah, Jason, Eldon and Austin. The kids were on their best behavior then, too! Mommy is so proud!! :-)

Blake, how much fun did you have today? THIS MUCH....!!

I love it when they are on their BEST behavior! Doesn't happen too much when you are out and about it seems but it is so nice when it does happen! YAY! Congrats on doing the walk! We are doing a walk for Alzheimer's in October! I hope my kiddos are just as good that day! :-)
