Our First Buddy Walk

The skies cleared and the sun was shining on us as we participated in our first Buddy Walk.What a hoot it was to be surrounded by so many beautiful families. It was the biggest walk so far with about 400 people. Remember we're a small state.



The beginning

The eating. Look how happy Sophia looks and how serious Peter looks. Funny.
This is me and my "Buddy" Melinda, she is Emilia's Godmother.
Peter holding on to some double trouble!

This wonderful man is Dr. Pueschel, one of the worlds leading Down Syndrome specialists and Em's Doctor. He is one the kindest, most gentle human beings I have ever met. We are so lucky to have him.
She finally gave in to sleep. she had a long and wonderful day. Can't wait to do it again next year.
BTW, check out Sophia's blog . My little sweet has updated and changed into her fall colors.

That is too funny that our Buddy Walks were also on the same day. Are you gearing up for the big 1st birthday party? Buddy Walk pictures look great.

That is awesome to see a physician participating in a walk. Sounds like he is a great guy. Love the pic of her sleeping. She is so adorable.
