Capital City Buddy Walk

Saturday was the 8th Annual Capital City Buddy Walk. It was a chilly morning, but we all wore lots of layers to keep warm. It was a fun day, and thanks to some pledges we received this week, our team has raised over $900 for the Down syndrome Association for Families of Nebraska. Thank you to everyone who donated to Ben's Brigade!
We had 19 people walk with Ben's Brigade this year. It was a fun morning filled with lots of activities for the kids, food, and games. We all warmed up a bit during the walk. I told the kids we could cut over to the play ground instead of following the trail the last 50 yards and missed out on getting stickers and giant cookies. Sorry that was my fault! We did end up finding the stickers that got us in to the Children's Museum free that day after lunch. Then we all came home and took a much needed nap. Well at least Ben and I did.

Here are a few pictures from the day.

Most of our group, but where are the Clymer's?

Here they are.

Aunt Shannon, Why are we out in the cold?

Uncle Steve, keep me warm!

Thank you for all your support!
