March of Dimes Day

So today was the walk. I got up at 6 and managed to get us to the event at 8 or so. It rained off and on all day.

Now when you sign up for a walk and it says three miles, do you comprehend the three mile part? Now three miles on a track - easy. Three miles up and down the hills of TN.... ECK! We didn't do the whole thing but I think we did at least 2 miles. Shoot I think I did 3 miles even before the walk started chasing the baby everywhere. What a stinker!

So the walk starts and here we are trekking through the neighborhoods that surround the fairgrounds. And what do I see? A GARAGE SALE! WOOOHHOO

So of course I left the hundreds of people walking to run to the sale. I made Carla go too hehe I got the baby a fun riding toy for $4 :) Even with stopping, we weren't the last ones to finish haha!

So after some cold BBQ and hotdogs and a lot of playing on her new toy we came home. I am pooped. She isn't because she slept during the walk and on the way home. Must be nice!

Pictures from the day...

Cute pics! You have my exact diaper bag. Does everyone ask you if you got it in China? I stopped using it partially because I got sick of answering that question! :0)

there's a big community yard sale at one of the really nice neighborhoods here in Bristol next weekend. Let me know if you'd like directions - or we can meet and go together!

$4 for the ride-on?!!! That is an absolutely BARGAIN! Those things are wicked expensive here.

Looks like a great day!

Natalie is so cute! Do you think you could have carried any more on that stroller?

That is why I took the picture, I was pretty proud of how I strapped the toy to the stroller so I could yard sale and still finish the walk lol
