Walk Now for Autism Speaks




Saturday morning found us, along with all the grandparents, at the Dell Diamond in Round Rock for the 2011 Walk Now for Autism Speaks.  Lily's clinic always participates in the Walk and we made quite the impression in our bright orange team t-shirts.

Lily's taking a few minutes before the walk officially begins to get in a good snuggle in the shade with her Daddy.

This is one of the Bird's best friends and therapists, Amalee.  Lily loves hanging with Amalee because she's so much fun and in this picture, she's also sneaking Lily some pretzels.  She knows snacks are the way to Lily's heart!

And we're off!  

Lily walked quite a bit of the way, holding hands with various friends.  Here, she's holding hands with her Dad (the headless one!) and Amy, the office manager at Lily's school.

This is Lily walking along with her Dad and Carson, one of the older siblings of a boy that goes to Lily's school.  They also go to our church so Carson liked chatting it up with her pastor.

And here's Lily with her big sister, Ryley.  Grandpa got to push the empty stroller, a thankless job.

Lily wanted to hold Ryley and Reagan's hands so we told the girls to act natural while Ryan snapped their photo.  I would say this is a pretty accurate representation - Reagan's just walking along, acting natural and Ryley's being a ham. Doesn't Lily look cute in her oversize tie-dye shirt??

It was a good day spent walking for a good cause.

By the way, in case you're interested, I updated the About Me page on the blog and added some more photos.  I've also added some new favorite blogs.  Check it out when you have a chance.

Have a super Tuesday!
