The first of many

This morning we participated in our very first sporting event as a family!  (Getting to the event on time was actually a sporting event in itself, but that is a story for another day.)  Free State Autism hosted a 2 km and 5 km fun walk to create awareness about autism, and we were there!

After an epic effort to get to the starting line on time, someone needed a little top-up before the start...


It was a cool, clear, sunny day in Bloemfontein.  The walk started out on tarred roads, but soon led us into a private game farm, where the largest part of the walk took place.


What a perfect, peaceful morning.  The route went through a Blue Gum forest...


... crossed dry stream banks...


... and the three of us had a ball.


Each participant received a hot dog and juice after the walk, which soon turned into one, big family picnic at the finish line.


What a lovely, fun morning with my gorgeous little family!
