Marching in the Rain!!

March of Dimes
Pre-walk refreshments!!

The kids and I decided to go March for a cause today!! We walked for the 500,000 babies that are born premature each year!! It was windy and wet but the kids learned just how lucky they are to be able to walk a mile in the rain on their own...a lesson I hope they carry with themselves forever.

and they're off!! we got a bit of a late start as we where distracted by the playground :)

Sophia hitchin' a ride....

This reminds me of the children's book "The Ants Go Marching"

"The ants go marching one by one... horrah horrah!
The ants go marching one by one...horrah horrah!
The ants go march one by one
and the little one stops to suck his thumb
 and they all go marching down to the ground
to get out of the rain...boom boom boom!"

Sophie and her "under-rella"

 Go Team!!!
