March of Dimes

We marched for Karsie today, and for others that are preemies/birth defected babies. We saw lots of neat stories and lots of faithful families still supporting little ones that they lost. It was inspiring and heartbreaking at the same time. However, the walk was fun and a great time to spend with family.
After the walk we took pictures of our team - Team Scripps Mercy Hospital. Karsie's shirt was way too big (as it was an adult small) so we had to have a makeshift onesie with the patch put on by Nana.
Ladies time. Auntie Christine, Nana, Michelle, and Karsie.
The beginning of the walk was s...l...o...w - as all walks/runs are. Balboa Park did not have wide enough streets, but luckily no one was in a rush.
A little break to take a picture. Karsie zonked out right after this.

Aaaaannd sleep. Karsie pretty much napped the rest of the walk. It was good that she stayed awake for her cameo.
One of the coolest things that we saw was a family that posted signs on their shirts that labeled them as preemies with their birth weights and how early they were. There were two boys that were now probably 10 and 13 years old - very healthy looking - that were 1 lb. and 4 lbs. respectively. It's neat to see how far they've come. One day Karsie will get to march with something like that. Maybe next year.
