Liver Walk

We had such a fun morning. We were at the Galleria at 8am for the Liver Walk, to raise money for the UAB Liver Center. Astellas (Perry's employer) was one of the sponsers, and P had a booth. This was their first year, so it was a pretty small crowd, but it was one of the better walks I've done. First of all, it was inside - AWESOME! They had Chick-fil-a biscuits for everyone, lots of goodies at various tables (including stickers and great coupons for Build-a-Bear), and 4 clowns making balloon animals and painting faces.

Sarah and I walked FAST to keep up with Abby's hopping and running, and we won the "race" (everything is a competition in this family). Then the girls got their faces painted (a bunny for Abby and a butterfly for Sarah) and asked for balloon flowers. We finished with a carousel ride and were out of there before 9am! I had promised Krispy Kreme (before I knew we were having biscuits, obviously), so off we went for a doughnut. Abby's classmate and friend Katie was there, so it was an extra-special KK morning.

P took them to the library before lunch, so I was able to take a little nap. I'm feeling a little under the weather and hope it's just allergies. This afternoon we went for a playdate at Lauren's house, and then had dinner at Johnny Ray's. A full but fun day for all!
