Saturday we walked with Team Stacy in the March of Dimes March for Babies. We walked in honor of Evan Stacy and in memory of Nicholas Stacy. The March of Dimes' mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. "One day all babies will be born healthy, we just have to walk to get there." For more information, go to www.marchofdimes.com.
Nathan and I walked in the bitter cold last year and were joined this year by Uncle Aaron and Mamaw (my mom). The weather started out pretty cold and rainy, but turned out to be a nice day for a walk. Team Stacy almost doubled in size from last year. Our goal is to continue to grow every year and participate every year in this event.

After to walk, we all gathered at the Stacy's home for lunch and fellowship. Nathan was much more interested in playing than eating (which is becoming all too common). He had to show his Uncle Aaron that he could climb the ladder all by himself and go down the big slide without help. He is getting to be such a big boy. From the picture, you can see that his favorite toy was the Little Tikes car. He must have gone in and out of that car dozens of times without tiring from the game. We may have to invest in a similar car. Finally, all the kids were playing with the bubble machine. I haven't seen so many bubbles in one place, and of course, neither had Nathan. He was facinated. He could only focus on one bubble at a time and followed it until it popped or landed. If the bubble landed, he carefully reached out and popped it on the grass. It looks like another future investment for the Wisener household. Maybe we should just go to the Stacy's more often and play with their toys.
