Marching for Babies

Lets talk present first....then we'll take a little trip down memory lane.

Today was the March of Dimes, March for Babies (formally Walk America). 
We've done it every year since Little Miss, and our Angel, were born. I was out one year due to it was the day after the Gremlin was born...and I'm crazy but not that crazy!

It's just a relaxing "walk", it's all families, there because they've been touched by premature birth of someone they love. I can't say it's run very organized...but it's mostly volunteers so what can you ask for!

Needless to say it was very warm today! I think when we got out of the car at 9:20AM it was 80degrees. So for a day in April the beach looked it was July. The boardwalk was hopping all the vendors were open the walkers had to dodge cars on the streets they were walking! But all was good. The kids survived but were not happy. They bickered a bit, but all in all. We finished in under 2hours. Which I think...6 miles..probably a bit more, or it was on the map anyway...really it took 2hrs? But there were plenty of people trailing behind....and a ton that dropped off the trail, back to the beginning to hang and eat!! Oh well. They already gave in their money so go ahead! Cheat! ahahha. 

My feet are a bit swollen, but maybe if I came home and sat for a moment they would have been ok. BUT instead we threw a family b bq shindig for the Gremlins 2nd bday! Nice. He was crazy as always, never disappoints!
