Buddy Walk 2010

Yesterday was the Buddy Walk in Coeur d'Alene, ID put on by our Ds Connecitons group. We started out the morning by heading downtown to appear on the news with our friends the Kibbe's to promote our group and the walk, and that went pretty well! Then off to the walk! The weather was beautiful, the turn out was great, and everyone had a lot of fun. This was our first Buddy Walk and we are looking forward to our next!!!

I am so thankful to team Ella Grace with the Pretty Face! As I looked at the picture below I realized that, with the exception of my mom, Chris and Hunter, I would not know a single one of these people if I didn't have Ella. It's quite amazing when you think about it. Thank you so much to everyone that came out and walked with us, it meant so much!!!
