Buddy Walk 2008 - Thank you for your help! !

The weather was perfect!!! Here are a few pictures from the day. Last Saturday, we took our family to downtown Duluth GA for the annual Buddy Walk. This year my parents joined us for the event; we all had a good time. The morning started with games, silent auction, raffles and entertainment. The kids always love riding the train and playing in the inflatables. The entertainment was provided by Jay Memory and the Cobb County Special Olympics Gymnastics Team. In one of the pictures you can see D seating by the performance area watching the Gymnastics Team. I thought he was going to get in line to join in; thankfully he did not. After the walk (about a mile), we enjoyed our picnic lunch of hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, cokes & ice cream. The last part of the event is announcing the top fund raisers and the winners of the silent auction and raffles. This year, we actually came home with a prize. Darrell won an Marquis Grissom autographed baseball and bat. All in all it was a great day!

Here are a couple of videos that I just had to share. There was some time in the afternoon to just have fun dancing to the music; D couldn't resist getting out on the dance floor. The videos are both short, but you get the idea.

Can you tell that our kids love to watch "Dancing With the Stars"? Just goes to show that white boys can dance (well, sorta).

We are truly greatful for those who supported our efforts by making a donation in honor of our son. You still have time to show your support - online donations will be accepted through Oct 31.
