March Of Dimes Walk

Saturday we were up bright & early, drank our coffee(except Carson of course), & went walkin for healthy babies!
When we arrived there were of course tons of people & babies everywhere, it was great to see so many people supporting such a great cause. When the walk started we started down the path that began with a small field of stars with "in memory of" & "in honor of" <insert name> on them. I couldn't help but get teary-eyed looking at them & thinking about Carson's short three day stay in the NICU, the day after we came home from the hospital, at four days old (a story for a different day), and how terrifying that was, and how blessed we were to have a healthy baby boy. I also thought of the story of another bloggy momma Holly & her son Liam. Their story is one of strength, courage, & loss of a precious life & was on my mind and in my heart the entire time. I was walking for Liam's memory, all the little lives taken too soon & those who had to go through so much to be here today.

It was an amazing experience & we will definately be walking again next year!

Oh by the way, yesterday at King's Island in Cincinnati....this happened.
