The sky was blue and the air was brisk, but still held a tad or warmth. We headed down to the coast with breakfast to go (trailmix in a bag) and made it with time to spare. At ten minutes before 10, we started our walk (a bit before the actual walk started). We walked by the salt marsh, out onto the main road in and all the way to the entrance of the park. We then turned back through the campground area and ended our last mile across the white sand beach. All three miles completed in just over an hour. All done without a stroller or wagon. Einey and Meenie walked, much to their dismay, well Moe got to ride on Daddy's shoulders. Einey and Meenie started to enjoy it when we had them race to the yellow route signs. Competition brings out the best in them.
All in all, I was happy with the results. We usually do the full five miles but due to having all girls walking (instead of being carried or pushed) I was happy with three. I thought we would have to do the quick one mile loop! Overall donations were lower than our previous years, but not as bad as they could be. We raised $730 this year (bringing our seven year walk total to approximately $5,500!).
Thank you to all of you who continue to support us in this cause!
