Yes, the moment you have all been waiting for has finally come. We had our Heart Walk on Saturday (May 19) and it went really well. 🙂
We started off by parking a mile away (hey, free parking, can’t complain) and walked to the area of festivities. We checked in, met up with some people we were walking with, and got started on our merry way. The Heart Walk is 3 miles, and I was wondering how the kids (especially Emmy) would do with walking it.
We elected to be at the end of the massive group of walkers, mainly to afford the kids a slightly more leisurely pace, and so as not to hold people up when we needed to stop for this and that.
We crossed over two bridges, this is one of them. We are some distance from the bridge still, but you can see many walkers already on the bridge – the teeny little specs at the bottom.
The kids were thrilled to cross the bridge at the same time as a train – though it was a bit noisy. You could hear Jacob’s “Choo! Choo!” above even the ruccous of the train.
Water break – here is Dorothy in her hot pink cast, she has been coping quite well with her left hand, little determined thing that she is.

Taking a break from the stroller on Dad’s shoulders.
The girls ended up walking all three miles, plus the last mile back to our car – a grand total of 5 miles. We were so impressed with them, especialy with Emily being only 4 years old. Go Emily!!! 🙂 The walk was a lot of fun and a great success, we can’t wait until next year to go again.
Oh, wait a second, that wasn’t the official announcement you were expecting? Gee…. guess you’ll have to wait just a bit longer (Jacob is upset about something, I need to go find out what).
