Women's Celebration Walk-a-thon

As if I haven't been to Idaho enough. This weekend was the Women's Celebration walk-a-thon and thus another reason to head north. We had to go get registered and took the kids to the expo part of the celebration.
Boise City Police Department had a great display that included letting the kids sit on their cool motorcycle and pretend-ride with the lights flashing.
Sweet-bot wanted to really go out for a ride.
My Drama Queen giving it a go......
Then it was outside to play in the fountain. Of course my water boy got soaked through, but it was a great day for it, not too hot and a sprinkling of fall leaves.
See, he just cannot stay away from the water.
Here we are before the walk.
It had rained all night and we were hopeful that it would stop for the walk. Ha ha hee. It rained and rained and rained. I think they got a total of 0.36" of water that day.
So we walked very quickly with the swarms of other women not deterred by a pesky rain storm and did our 5K walk. It was great fun and something I hope we do again next year.

Good for you, braving the rain for a good cause. I melt in the rain, therefore I hate being outside in it :)

Thanks for your sweet comment about my Isabel. It is so hard to say no to her; she's so darn cute and loving. I'm sure I'll give in and get her a darn kitten (her birthday is in December). Oh, well.

Sounds like you had a great day inspite of the rain. I think it is great when people get involved and do things like this. I need to make more of an effort...I don't know about walking 5K but something.

So funny! It was fun and I think my tennis shoes are still wet! It is sunny today and of course not a cloud in the sky. We had fun this weekend and we hope to see more of you..... I can't believe this but I was actually sore from the walk. Go figure! (Hey e-mail me some of the pictures when you get a chance).

C- I think the funds went to the local hospital and from there who knows, but it was great fun.

Good for you. I've NEVER done a 5K, but always say I want to. I loved seeing the grove with leaves all over. So pretty.

Cool! I want to start doing these too. I'm glad the rain didn't hurt you:)
