Buddy Walk 2011

It's been a couple of weeks ago, but we got to participate in our first Buddy Walk with Ella Grace!

Team Ella Grace

It was great to see many families that we have met before, and to see SO many people out there supporting their family members and friends.  We were blessed to have my sister's family come be a part of our team, and we had several friends/family members who donated to the fundraiser in honor of Ella Grace. As you can see, it was cold and rainy, but it didn't stop the crowd from moving forward! 

We got to hear a little bit about this couple, who have been married for more than 5 years!  They met in grade school, and I couldn't help but feel so proud to hear their story!

We tried for a group shot!  Lots of little one's, which means lots of families to connect with!

We all took turns pushing our Buddy around the 1 mile trail!

And we let her finish the "walk", well, by walking!!

Coming across the finish line with Daddy!

We are very proud of our little Buddy, and are so blessed to be a part of this community here!  We look forward to many more years of being a part of the Buddy Walk!

Next year, I'm guessing she will be ready to walk the whole mile!
So proud of this girl!!!

She's got a new smile!

Notice the beautiful smile, with a mouth full of baby teeth!

And now, here is her new smile, as of October 7th, 2011......

minus a bottom baby tooth, replaced by the big tooth that is already growing in!  Still beautiful, if you ask me!
