Tonight we attended our second annual March of Dimes WalkAmerica awards. Last year they were held at Comerica Park, and we got to watch a Tiger's game. This year they were held at the newly opened MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Detroit, so we got to blow a whole $5 on absolutely nothing in less than 30 seconds.
Last year I received an award for being the #7 individual walker for our region. This year I got an award for being the #2 individual walker, and another award for being the top family team at our walk site!!!!!!!!! Pretty cool, huh? I need to find out how much the #1 walker raised, so I know where to set our goal this spring;)
It's such a small world too... Right when we got there I spotted a girl (woman? lady? chick? I never know what to say there...I'll stick with girl because that's what I would prefer myself) that John and I went to high school with. She was there with her husband, who also went to our high school, and their 4-year-old twin girls, Sydney and Olivia, who are former 25 weekers. Her girls were so cute and really reminded us of H and E. They made us miss our girls and wish that we had brought them with us...well, kinda. On the other hand, a night out sans kids was pretty nice too.
