31 for 21: Day 22 BUDDY WALK SATURDAY!!!!

 today was the panama city beach buddy walk! what is a buddy walk? according to the national down syndrome society, "The Buddy Walk® was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. Today, the Buddy Walk program is supported nationally by NDSS and organized at the local level by parent support groups, schools and other organizations and individuals."

it's been such a blessing to our family to have so many family and friends join us in our local buddy walk! the first year we participated, we had over 50 people join us! last year we had over 20, and this year we had close to 40 registered! it was a beautiful day, and we had a great time visiting with family, old and new friends, as well as other families whose children have Down syndrome! this is wyatt's first year to actually WALK the buddy walk too! what a great day we had.....
