Scenes from a Walk

A few highlights from this weekend's Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk®. The kids did really well considering we dragged them on a 3 mile walk! We had our biggest team ever, My sister & nephew, my Aunt K, Cousins S & S, Aunt K's friend, K, my Dad and Stepmom and Monkey and Mater all walked and had a great time.

Monkey and Aunt K in the T-shirt contest. We didn't win, which explains the look on Monkey's face, but the group that did win was walking for a relative that had passed away the day before... There were a lot of great T-shirts there.

On our way. (Mater is on Papo's shoulders...) There were TONS of people there.

My Aunt K and her friend, K. (They have the same name, and I would give them names like I've done in the past, but my family has a LOT of 'K' names, and I'm running out of ideas!)

The pic of Mater & the one of the 3 of the boys together seriously brought tears to my eyes! What a great way to carry on your grandpa's legacy, by making sure your boys know as much as they can about him AND the disease that he so bravely battled :) Your boys are as handsome as can be! (and I just read your post about what Monkey said about the army....what a wonderful lil man you have momma!)
Way to go on the 895!!!! That is astounding!

AudreyO said...
