The weather didn't seem to keep anyone away, though. Team Book Buddies and Pen Pals (aka Team Literacy Launch Pad) was Number 2 in fundraising overall, with a final total topping $2500.
Team Anthony didn't do too shabby either, raising over a thousand dollars and some awareness.
As always, the day was full of fun, friends, and adorable kids.
Like this one.
And this one.
And especially these ones.
Thanks to everyone- near and far- who shared the day with us.
Today is October 1st, which means it's Down Syndrome Awareness Month. I just don't think I have it in me to participate in 31-for-21 (a blog post every day of the month) this year, but for what will surely be some memorable writing and photos, I recommend you head over to Leah's blog and follow the adventures of our friend Cora, starting with her take on the Buddy Walk.
