Dallas Heart Walk 2012

This is my 400th post. Dang skippy, that makes me feel like a legitimate blogger.

Yesterday, very very early in the morning, we drove from Fort Worth to downtown Dallas to participate in the largest Heart Walk in the country. The company that Chris works for was the lead sponsor and Chris had joined his boss's team. I had no idea it was such a large event...for some reason I thought it was just going to be Oncor employees. Ha! There were over 50,000 people there! Shows exactly how early we had to get up to get there on time, clearly my mind wasn't quite awake yet.  The weather was gorgeous, with highs only in the mid eighties.

This was right as the walk started. This was the view in front of us:
And behind:
People as far as you could see!

Both of the little guys were total troopers, very cheerful for being woken up and hour and a half earlier than normal. Otto somehow made it through the day on a twenty minute nap.
Meredith caught a few naps in the stroller, and was her normal happy self when she was awake. We continue to be amazed at her ability to nap in public, completely different from round one for sure.
Otto didn't slow down all day. There was so much going on and he wasn't going to miss any of it! After the walk, we went to Oncor's headquarters where they were hosting a lunch with bounce houses and frozen yogurt, pretty much Otto's definition of awesome.
And today we tried a new church (still church hunting) and Meredith slept through the service in the Ktan. Seriously, Chris and I are so impressed by her mellow personality. We love her brother's hand's on approach to life and wouldn't change him in the slightest, but she is definitely a lower maintenance baby by comparison.
After afternoon naps we took a little walk around the school down the streets track. Meredith rode in the stroller like a big kid for the first time!
She was pretty impressed with herself and did a pretty good job at staying in a semi upright position. Otto was very proud of her and insisted on marching her around the track.
