Gracie's Gang - JDRF Walk

We walked on Sunday. For Grace, for little kids we don't know, for adults with Type 1 - we walked. And it was glorious! Kelly from the uber-fabulous Diabetesaliciousness joined us for the walk -  and I cannot think of a better traveling companion. She walked for Eilish, she walked for her sister Debbie who she lost to Type 1, she walked for herself, she walked. I am so very proud of her.

Ready for the walk to begin!

Lookie who we found! The one and only Kelly!

8,000 walkers this year!

Ok, sponsors - we LOVED the giant cow you brought!!! 
Oh and we wished the gallon of ice cream was actually that size!!!

Where we stepped off from - The Philadelphia Museum of Art!
And yes, of course my kids did the Rocky run up the stairs!!!

People have great sayings on their t-shirts!!!

It was a gorgeous day for a walk. This is Boathouse Row across the river.
We saw men and woman rowing during our walk.

I love my city.

And I love these two too.

Walking for all of us.
All of you in the DOC, all of you who are my blog-friends, we walked for you too.

And of course Nick was there!!! We all wondered where his OmniPod was placed!

And why does the flippin' meter always read a perfect 93?
I wanted to scratch it out and put a 2 in front of it
293. There. That's reality some days, Nick.

A great day.
