Psoriasis Awareness walk

We took the family up to Liberty park yesterday to help out at the Psoriasis Awareness walk. I've got a good friend who's little girl has severe psoriasis, and she was the grand marshal. We went up a little early to help set up, and then did the walk together.

They had face painting and some little snacks and balloons, and the kids had a pretty good time.

Except of course for Kai "funtime". He warmed up a little later. Tia was so excited about her balloon she put it in her hair. I said she looked like an upside down exclamation point.

Here's the grand Marshal and her family. They are such a beautiful family. It was heartbreaking to see them struggle with this illness. She's doing quite a bit better now with a new medication. So happy for all of them.

Love the tall picture of Tia with the balloon, and funtime-Kai. That's a keeper.

Good experience for the kids to be part of the whole thing. Helps them develop that awareness. Sounds like it was a fun time too--even for Kai in the end.
