March of Dimes Walk!!!

We were able to have a lot of fun at the March of Dimes Walk to raise money to decrease the incidence of premature births!!
Ellie really enjoyed having her bike there. There were a lot of people though and then it made it really hard for her to ride along the path. We eventually put the bike back in the car and that made it a little easier to get through the crowd!!

Xander is just our cutie! He really enjoyed hanging out the stroller as we walked.

I was trying to get a cute pic of Aeryn and I but she wasn't really interested. She was more interested in the donuts and juice that they had for everyone who was walking that morning!

After we did the walk, they had a lot of fun things for the kids to do. Xander really enjoyed getting a monkey holding a banana made by the balloon guy. Xander just kept saying..."nana, nana" and really wanted to eat a banana when we got home.

They also had this professional face painter who did amazing jobs. I think we waited like 45 minutes to have the kids get their faces painted. But amazingly, they were very patient throughout the wait. They wanted this SOOO bad. Ellie chose a rainbow and a was really cute.

Aeryn wanted a rainbow butterfly. It was cool because the lady used a sponge/crayon thing that had all the colors on it and just brushed it along their cheeks to make the rainbow effect. The kids already are excited to go back next year to do it again.!!
