Think Pink

This past weekend I did the Atlanta 2 day breast cancer walk again.  This year I only walked Sunday because of the baby.  I still did 10 miles (Saturday is 20 miles) and it was so great to be a part of it all again.  My mom and her friends have done this for 3 or 4 years now and it makes me so proud to be part of their group.  

We really get to see some great parts of Atlanta.  This year we ended up at the zoo and my dad met us there with the monkeys.  We ended up spending part of the afternoon there and I decided to play hookie from work Monday since I was so tired by Sunday evening.  
Here we are at the finish line holding on tightly to the monkeys (they were ready to go see the animals at the zoo!).
We sent the bigger monkeys off to the zoo with grandad while we rested with squeaky.  Cutest baby ever!

It was obvious that the recession has hit in many places, and unfortunately it hit the walk too.  Seemed there were less walkers this year, but we still managed to raise over a million dollars to go towards breast cancer research.  

My dad had a great time with the monkeys.  He did such a good job taking care of all three.  I honestly was not worried about them, maybe him a little!  I was glad littlest monkey took a bottle from him.  He seems to be picky about who gives him his bottles, he prefers the nanny!  If you notice the picture, he does have his onesie on backwards.  No biggie!  My dad thought for sure the buttons should go in the front.  It was a good laugh.
