So not 3 miles

The walk was so much fun! I had a tearful moment standing there looking all around me seeing little kids and strollers everywhere and all the hundreds of people around me walking for the same cause. It was wonderful. I also saw a few people I used to work with at the tv station I used to work for who were covering the walk and that was nice. (The station was one of the sponsors). It was an absolutely gorgeous day and as we were watching the pedometer on the jogging stroller, we noticed it wasn't quite 3 miles but instead almost 6. And at the end, the first-trimester-tireds got me and I felt like I was going to fall over and die and I found out that I think I have a knot in my butt (or at least lower back) because man, that hurt. But the walk was awesome and it's yet another post best told by pictures. Till next year!!!

Dad, Mom-In-Law, Hubby and Poops (We missed my mom on walk day, she was a little under the weather. Love you, mom!!)

Me and Poops

Why wouldn't we seen an alligator (or two) in the pond we were walking around?? Believe it or not, we were walking right next to a bald man pushing a stroller, who just happened to also be an alligator wrestler. I felt so safe! It was like the time I took a flight that not only had the priest who married us on it, but Hulk Hogan, would you believe, and I thought, this is the safest flight ever! If something happens, we'd have one to give the smackdown, and one to pray that we all make it safe!
