It's My Heart 5K

This morning I got brave and headed downtown with both kids and a double jogging stroller in tow. (Stephen was working.) We signed up for the 5 K Walk that benefits kids with heart disease like our little friend Isabela. If you can believe it, this was my first ever organized walk/run, so I wasn't sure quite what to expect. We got there a bit early which gave the kids time to run around, harrass ducks and explore Sam Houston Park a bit. Unfortunately, my camera battery died just before the walk began so I'll post a few more later when I get my hands on some more. We were joined by the rest of our core, the Falcones and the Alexanders. It was so good to catch up with them and fill them in on the latest in our lives. (I know you are still waiting for that blog, but I don't have the green light to publish to the world yet.) Both kids enjoyed the balloon release and Cavett even decided to run a bit. Cavett's comment of the day was, "Is this a parade?" So, that is what we called our little walk--a parade. I am so glad we were able to be there to support Isabela. Please begin praying for her as she prepares for her next surgery on April 14.

Great fun!! and although we've had some great sunshine here, we were totally bundled up. I'm jealous of short sleeves!!! hugs for Isabela!
