Marching in Memory of Smith Randle Bailey

Yesterday morning, bright and early, we boarded the Dart Rail and headed to White Rock Lake for the March of Dimes, March for Babies Walk. We walked in memory of my nephew, Smith. Cole was super excited about the "train" ride and then riding the "huge bus" from Mockingbird Station to the event.

Team Smith met in the Preemie Pit right by the stage and starting line. There were thousands of people walking. It was a HUGE event! We are so thankful for all of Kori and Jon's friends and family that joined us on the walk! I have to say I felt Smith with me all day.

After the 5 mile walk we boarded the train again and headed home to rest! I have to say, Cole and Campbell were rock stars the whole day!
I want to send out a special thank you to Joni Fleming for originally sponsoring Smith in the walk and allowing all of us to join her! We love Joni and the Fleming Family! I also want to thank Matt Poe for designing and printing our Team Smith shirts! We all looked great thanks to him!

We plan on making this walk an annual family and friends event! We would love you to join us next year as we help raise money for babies! Please visit http://www.marchofdimes.com/ for more information about their mission and ways to donate time and/or money!
