We had to wake Olivia up this morning. She wasn't too excited about that.

Thank you to everyone who participated and/or donated money for the March for Babies today. We had an amazing time. I'm sure that we were one of the largest teams there. Thanks to Gina, Savannah and the Brownie Troop for bringing our wonderful banner. Thanks to Grandpa and Grandma Sailing for the giraffe cookies and to Shelley and her mom for the bracelets. Thanks to Laura, Joel, Julia and Rebekah for making the streamers and to Kerry for the hand sanitizers and labels. Those footprints are the actual size of Olivia's feet at birth. Everybody be sure to save your buttons and bracelets for next year. We'll try to make t-shirts next year as well. Thanks also to everyone who took pictures (Can you believe that Ryan and I forgot our camera?) Please email me your pictures so I'll have something to post with this update. We got off to a late start as Olivia didn't want to get out of bed this morning. We actually had to wake her up. The weather was a bit chilly in the morning, but it turned into a wonderful day. Everybody did so much to make this day extra special and I appreciate all of you so much. Thank you again!

I am sorry I missed you today...there was a lot more people there than I thought there would be. We were in the Wesley area most of the time and didn't really move. We had to feed the kids at 10 so we didn't walk. We had a great time though. Congrats to you and your friends and family for raising so much money. That will help so many families. Crystal Hanson
