Buddy Walk 2010

Say hello to Team Anthony! Saturday was the Northwest Down Syndrome Asssociation Buddy Walk and Anthony's friends and family came together to walk side by side and support NWDSA's mission of building a more inclusive world.
Here's the starting line of the big walk!

Over 1,000 partipants filled the streets on a beautiful, sunny day!

Check it out! It's The Screening Room, Jim Snell's band, poised on the brink of stardom! They volunteered to be the entertainment and sounded fantastic!

It's not unusual to feel like you might need a little nap mid-walk, especially when the temperature is 80 degrees!

So there are hotdogs at the end of this thing, right?

Great job, Anthony, but we promise to feed you soon!
The Albuquerque bound Kate and Kurt along with Suzanne and Harry!
The Vanderzanderwoodzens!!!

Tracie and Brian brought the supremely cool Jorden who was a great walker!

One amazing Daddy! Looks like Zoe is channeling her psychic powers!
  Here's Archer and Anthony, relishing in their post-walk victory!

The Mahon clan represents! Cousin Brian and Aunt Peggy, who flew out from Flushing to walk!

My uncle Kurt looks like Dirty Harry Callahan. Go ahead, make my day!

Shannon and Gyan! Where's our pal Anant? Off with his Daddy getting a balloon probably!

 Coolness incarnate -- Archer tries in vain to keep daddy Jonas in line. I want that T-shirt, Archer!

One lucky, lucky guy...

Jorden reminds Anthony that the paparrazi are relentless! So smile!

After the big walk, the fountains were turned on to let the walkers cool off! You don't have to ask us twice!

Cousin Brian gets his Woodstock on!

 Jorden dove right in!!!

Mommy about to be ambushed... a sudden splash!!!!


 Aunt Peggy having a terrific day!

We had the best, best time!!!

...but even team leaders must find time to nap! 
Thank you, everyone!
