Seeing Red

Josie attended her first Heart Walk over the weekend.  Every year, our good friend, Pete, organizes a team in memory of his father.  This year, we had one more important reason to walk;  July 8th will mark the one year anniversary of Josie's open heart surgery.  We are grateful for the advances in medical technology that allowed Josie's defective heart to be repaired and we are happy to support the American Heart Association in their efforts to finance life-saving research that will help heal many more hearts like Josie's. 
Naturally, Josie wore red and accessorized with her brightest smile!
Daddy did some baby lifts to help him warm up for the big 5k!
Josie helped Daddy adjust his hat (and she may have gouged his eye for good measure)...
And then she planted a sweet kiss on his cheek!
We could not go home without a stop at the Survivor Tent where Josie claimed her red cap - the official symbol of heart disease survivors. 
We are so proud of our little survivor and we had a great time honoring her at the American Heart Association's Heart Walk!
