5K Mania

Will has now walked in two 5Ks.  He is a big boy!  Saturday before Thanksgiving, we took place in the St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital Give Thanks Walk.  It was a fundraiser for St. Jude, and they are our favorite charity.  It was a brisk morning, but it was very family friendly.   Families were out in full force with kids and dogs all putting names and faces to the fight of cancer.  Team Walton joined up with Team Carroll for a great walk.  Thanks to Uncle Jason, Uncle Bill, Kay, and Frances for helping us raise some money for such a great cause! 

After the walk . . . I really pushed Will in the stroller, not carried him in the Bjorn

On Thanksgiving morning, Team Walton along with the rest of the LP (our friends in the neighborhood) did a Turkey Trot benefitting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  It was even colder than before.  We were all super bundled up.  Most of us walked a 5K, while Dave ran an 8K.  Too bad David ran the 8K faster than we could walk the 5K.  Go David!  It was our effort to do something other than just go directly into a food coma on Thanksgiving.  Don’t worry, we went into the coma as soon as we finished. 

LP ready to go!
