March of Dimes Walk America

Today we went down town for the March of Dimes Walk. Here is the Northside Hospital Registration booth.
Here's part of my team...Maggie, Elaine, Sheila, Lindsay and Donna! La'shawnda and Isaiah walked with us today as well.
Donna and Lindsay had a good time playing while waiting for the walk to start.
Lindsay was laughing very hard here.
Lindsay played with her NSH beaded necklace ALL day! We were very happy that Donna was able to walk with us today. It's been a long time since Donna has been well enough to walk a 5.2 mile walk! YAY DONNA!
TA DA...look who we ran in to at the walk?? This is the woman who brought Lindsay into the world! MY OBGYN!
Our gang hitting the green after the walk.

Lindsay is chowing down...she was definitely hungry at this point!
So was Donna....tee,hee....
Obviously, Maggie wanted some BLOG exposure because she took this picture of herself with my camera! Nice one Maggie. Thanks for all your help with the baby today. I REALLY appreciate you helping push!
Lindsay with her beads at the CNN center. After the walk we decided to go to CNN center for lunch at the food court and some hanging out.
Here is the gang all cooled off and full from lunch.
Today could not have been a nicer day. Lindsay and I left the house at 6:15 this morning. (Second Saturday in a row too.) We had great weather at the walk and it was definitely a work out. We enjoyed our gab time with everyone and getting to spend the day just enjoying each other. MARTA could have been a little smoother...let's see we got "taken" at Medical Center first thing in the morning and gave our money to a guy who "sold" us fake breeze passes. biggie...Maggie and Sheila had their own and we were fine. Then only ONE track was running all day so we waited forever for a train and had to switch three times instead of once because of the route that they were running trains. This was TOTALLY annoying with a jogging stroller and having to go in and out of elevators etc. to change platforms. Once again MARTA was not SMARTA when it came to time management but fortunately we had all day.
Other than MARTA I could not complain. Lindsay and I stopped at Publix on the way home to replenish her watermelon supply. We arrived home around 4pm and promptly changed, took a bottle and Lindsay AND mommy took a fat nap! My little one was so pooped she took a three hour nap and still went to bed by 9:30 tonight. Lindsay's only complaint of the day is she hasn't kissed her Daddy yet. Today was also the BIGGEST PROM Saturday of the season. Daddy was asleep when we left and gone when we got home. Here's hoping tonight was a good night for Daddy and we'll have some family time tomorrow.

Looks like you had fun. I really hate those yellow shirts this year but you all made it look good. I'm also not impressed that when Evan was born, there was over a two week backorder on the storks. I see where the stork priorities are...j/k. Glad you had a good walk!

We had fun but you were right...that route/length was a killer. Once we got to Piedmont Park I was like alright..already...I HATED the Yellow shirts this year. Oh well, what are you going to do? At least it was easy to keep up with everyone. The only other yellow shirts were "Ted's Montana Grill" and they were no where near as big as NSH. That's funny about the STORKS. I didn't know that about when Evan was born. I would have demanded my STORK...I worked hard for that. Tee,hee. Mike and I went round and round about taking that stork off our front door. He finally MADE me do it before I went back to work. LOL! I was politicing to leave it up until we could "earn" a new stork. He didn't go for it. GIRL STORK is still hanging in my guest room though. heh, heh...

I was worried I would get too tired out - I have a problem stopping when I start ... haha

You have an excuse your pregnant! I didn't do any of my spring walks last year. I was NOT about the swollen ankles and trying to do any EXTRA walking.

Plus, five miles in flip flops is just not possible!!!

HOW CUTE is your baby? And she looks like she has a much better attitude than Skylar does. Ha Ha.
