Walk

Yesterday we participated in the annual walk for Down syndrome.  It’s always been known as the Buddy Walk but this year they changed the name to the “Step Up For Down Syndrome Walk”!  Buddy Walk was a lot easier to say!

The weather was great and we were joined by my parents, my sister and 3 of her children, along with at least 5000 others who were walking for the same cause!

They had lots of fun activities for the kids like face painting and tattoo…

This was the 7th year participating  in this walk in the past 8 years since we have had Ricky in our lives!!  What a blessing he is to our entire family!!!

Hey Lynda ... looks like the Buddy Walk was a wonderful success ... what a great reason for a walk - not to mention the MN weather was fabulous yesterday (and the entire last week!) I enjoyed looking at all the photos! The kids look like they had a great time ... Hope you have a wonderful week! We should plan to get together again soon ... maybe a visit to the apple Orchard? Hope you guys are well!

Hugs from Prior Lake!
