TEAM BROCK AND BRODY

March of Dimes - Walk For Babies is over! We had so much fun. My legs are still "jelly" from walking 5 miles. There were so many other family groups there today at the U of H marching in honor of or in memory of a baby/babies that were loved by their families. Then there were the happy stories to tell of the premies who have grown and were actually walking or "strolling" with us today. My heart was bursting with pride at our group. All of our kids made it the entire route without any tears or "whining"! That was the adults doing the whining! Macy rode her scooter the entire way. It was her 6th BIRTHDAY and she selfishly gave up her day! We did enjoy lunch out at a nice Mexican Restaurant downtown complete with presents and cake! We didn't leave out our precious birthday girl. Our strong Reid walked with the big guys and the baby's all rode in strollers and enjoyed the scenery. JD and Jaxon were our missing partners. Jaxon got very sick when we got to Houston with an ear infection and some other "stuff" so we kept her home at Aunt Ashley's with her mommy. We missed them so much! We were also missing Reese or we would have had all of the families newest babies. We missed them SO much. Aunt Kathy drove the FW crew down and we were so glad to see her and walk and talk and laugh together. We missed Whitney and Kyle but they are WAY busy. Matt, Christine, Jack and Sam came along and marched not only for Brock and Brody but for their own J & S who were premies and for their sweet friends. Christine's mom, Mindy came too and we L.O.V.E.D. having her with us. We missed JoJo and Jenna but Reese was busy getting her daddy off on a trip to Guatamala. Next year we are making Jordan come too! Lauren and Mason stayed with their Daddy so Mommy Kedra could come and we are so grateful she did! Riley entertained us with her running skills like her JOJO. Jack and Sam were champs making such a long walk and their mommy . Enjoy the group photo just after we crossed the finish line 2 hours after we started. I don't know about you but count me in next year again. But we are going earlier and getting a better parking place.


Brock and Brody's beautiful mommy and little sister were our inspiration.


LOVE TO ALL THE TEAMS, but our especially.......


If you double click on the group picture you can see it much better and for some reason this layout almost cut out Riley in the picture. And we don't want that! When it's double clicked you can see me holding her with her ears covered. She did not like the loud band but she ran the fastest.

Reese and JoJo and I are very sad we couldn't make the March! Hopefully next year! I love the picture of everyone... And I especially love the story of Riley running like JoJo. Can't wait to see you! Are you coming to Abilene this week? I hope so!

It was such fun! By the way...all of you who look at the photo of Riley running...we were all stopped at a water station as she ran up and we began to cheer for her and she got the biggest grin...like she was crossing the finish line of the biggest race on earth! Can't wait til next year!!!
Hugs!

I had so much fun with everyone there and am so blessed that everyone wanted to come and walk with me and help remember B & B.

I do love the picture of Riley running. If only I would have had that much energy.

Love you!
