A Journey with Love and Laughter

Read about our family as we journey through life as a family, with siblings, school and spina bifida, and lots of fun and laughter along the way!

Our 6th Annual Spirit Wheel Walk Run

The day of our event came. 
And we had a fantastic turn out!
We had 41 people come out as part of Nick's Cheering Squad.


We had families and friends, co-workers and school friends.
And we had 4 families with spina bifida together!

It was about half kids and adults, so we got a kid picture of everyone!
From 2 weeks old to 14 years!


Nick was very excited to start on his walk


We started relatively on time, with Nick leading the way


The weather was nice and sunny but not super hot.
So it was perfect (but I have said that I will walk rain or shine... shine is just preferred)


Everyone took turns pushing Nick, and he had a blast!


We stopped at the look-out and the kids had fun climbing up and watching all of the adults below


and I think the adults were glad to have a rest


The kids were playing a game and didn't want to go back! Except of course that that is where the food was...


We all posed for some pictures while we waited




But for some reason didn't get one of all of us together


I can see how our event has grown in the last couple of years. We used to be walk for the whole 3 hours. Now we walk more as a group together, everyone (almost) makes it to the look out, and then we walk back.


The leisurely pace we made let us all talk as we walked.
And catch up with other families


Katheryn and Hannah were together as usual!


Then it was back to the picnic area for some socializing and food


and baby snuggles


And Nick was doing lifts on his walker


We picnicked right beside the playground (too cold for the splash pad) so the kids all had lots of fun, and the adults weren't too far away


And I even had an opportunity to educate some people who stopped and asked us about our event


At the end of the day we all had another fantastic year of cheering on Nickolas!


Nick passed out soon after we got home...


Always a sign of how well the day went!

We are still fundraising until the end of the month

But you will definately see Nick's Cheering Squad walking, riding and wheeling next year!
