Well, I'm finally getting a chance to post those pictures I promised from my weekend. Everything went great and we had a lot of fun at the Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk. There was so much to do! There was a rock wall to climb for the kids, inflateables, live music, arts and crafts, clowns, face painting, and even celebrities like KC Wolf and Ronald McDonald! lol There was even free food, who doesn't like that?! For lunch there was a line where we could choose from hot dogs, burgers, brats, cole slaw, grapes, apples, bananas, oranges, and even non-fat yogurt! I knew there was going to be food but wasn't expecting such healthy choices! I had packed a bag of my own snacks and didn't even need it, I was pleasantly surprised! The walk was arround the KC Chiefs Arrowhead Stadum and was just a mile long. I figured out why it was such a short walk when I saw a lot of kids starting to get tired and therefore throw fits and have melt downs along side of the path, lol. My daughter did well but started asking if we were almost there about a 1/4 mile into it...lol, I gave in and gave her a piggy back ride for the last leg and thought of it as walking with weights, just one big a$$ weight directly on my back LOL. So without further ado, here's some pictures from our big day!!
Here's some with my friends kiddos in it...you'd think the red head would be mine but that's Hannah :)
And here's some pics on the walk and of our Team, "Lorelei's Troops."
Oh and I can't forget our team captain, Lorelei!!
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed my pics! I know, I got a little picture happy, lol...that's just the scrapbooker in me
[edit: sorry about any neck cramping that may occur during the viewing of these pics, I'll do better next time...oops]
