The walk was amazing. We had 13 people signed up. We had 10 and two kids show up. More than last year, but not as many as we were expecting.
Last years walk was 61,000 people strong. I'd like to take the opportunity to mention that the entire population of the city we will be moving too is 53,000. Oh Wyoming! The numbers haven't come in yet from this years walk!
My mom decided she was joining us, and that was fantastic! She was nervous she wouldn't be able to make it all 5 miles, especially with B's mom there and her wanting to make a "good impression" to all people not related to us. But she did fine--better than me, actually. Sad, and so freakin' true. Would have been much better if it weren't 40 degrees out and we hadn't parked a mile away this year. Ha! But downtown at sunrise is absolutely gorgeous, so it was fantastic photo-taking time!
A few photos:

Wall of people for as far as you could see.
View of the finish-area from the other side of the river.
Awesome little dog. So many people brought their pets. They were cute, but it makes me wonder if their owners can read "no pets of bicycles." We did wonder about rollerblades, though.
The bottom of a ferrywheel, which for whatever reason is suspended in the air.
Then we came home and cleaned out the storage closet and threw out TONS of stuff. So exciting!
And then we woke up on Monday and couldn't move. But it was totally worth it :)
