Susan G. Komen 10/10/10

Sunday morning we woke the kids up early to be at our friend's house by 6:15. We had to get outfitted in our pink for the Susan G. Komen walk. Suzanne, our friend and mom of Christine's best friend, is a breast cancer survivor.

The girls all ready to go. Suzanne had bought pink hairspray thinking Andrew would wear it...but to our suprise he wanted nothing to do with it!

The adults.

There were over 30,000 people at the Phoenix Race for the Cure.

Our gang on the walk....Andrew, Maggie and Morgan (Suzanne's daughter) only asked about 10 times each the dreaded question-"How much further?" They all made the 3.1 mile walk...Andrew was piggy-backed for some of it.

Andrew didn't want to be in the group photo. Of course, he continued to walk while we were having our picture taken. That led to a few moments of panic for Andrew because when you look around and see 30,000 people, most of whom have the same shirt on, it's a little hard to find your mom and dad.

Maggie messing around in the car with one of the goodies she got at the race. The scarf on her head was courtesy of Ford.

Happy Birthday to Christine!

Christine was not happy that on her birthday Maggie and Andrew only had to go to school for half the day.

I put them to work icing cookies. I had baked the sugar cookies in the morning while they were at school. Then when they got home I gave them paint brushes and they painted the cookies orange.

After they dried some I used black icing to make them look like basketballs. We took them to Christine's practice for the girls.

After practice we went out to eat and them came home for a little ice cream cake.
