Making Strides walk

I just want to tell everyone who sponsored us thank you. We had a wonderful day today as a family, and it was wonderful to be able to participate in such a worthwhile event, and to learn all of the things that the ACS actually does to treat and prevent breast cancer. It was a worthy investment, and I am grateful to all of you! Today, they announced that the total raised from this event was $75,000! Thanks to all of you who had a part in that!

I thought I'd post a few pics from today. It was a wonderful event and such a great feeling to be there. It was wonderful to see women who have survived such a difficult experience and to be with so many people who cared about it all.

There were about 3,000 walkers today!
Sisters. :)
After the walk came a little much-deserved fun for some girls who did so well today, and didn't complain a bit!

We just had to post this for aunt Chantile...look at the real tiara we got to try on!

We got our faces painted!
The girls thought the clown was Santa Claus...what absolute awe they were in!
Ducks in a row.

Even the baby was a trooper. :)Homeward bound.
