Yep The buddy walk was a few weeks ago and I am just getting these posted.
Here we are with John C. McGinley from Scrubs. He has a son named...MAX (!) who is 12 years old and has Ds. John has been the top host of the buddy walk since it started. He was so nice and easy to talk with. I'm glad we got to say hello and introduce him to our son.
Max with Papa - looking adorable as usual ( yes I'm talking about BOTH of them )
His first introduction to a little pony. So adorable.
Here's our friend Jaime and his son Matthew. We met them at Club 21 and had a regular thursday night visit with them at the farmer's market in South Pasadena. he and his wife would bring their 2 kids and Jerry would meet us after work. Can't wait for the days to get longer again so we can meet up with them.
There were about 2000+ people at the buddy walk. It was pretty impressive. Loved running into all of our friends and seeing all the celebrities as well.
Here is Kylie - who I met at Club 21 and has been a regular at the play group we go to on Fridays.
Love her new glasses!
Over all the buddy walk was a lot of fun for us - mainly because we got to see our friends there and visit with their kids.
Max slept a lot - I think he was sensitive to the noise level. It's an event we will go to every year to support the cause and help create awareness that people with Down syndrome are people too! And great people at that!
