NYC and Lehigh Valley Buddy Walks 2016

In September, we headed to NYC for the NDSS #NYCBuddyWalk 
This was our 2nd trip to NYC for Buddy Walk (we went back in 2014), and Porter's 2nd time on the big screen in Times Square. Thanks to Erik and Kelly, Devan and Porter's love was on display for all to see.
We had a great time in Times Square and had an adventurous day in the city...the kids saw some characters in Times Square. We got to ride a school bus through the city, which is an experience in an of itself...our trip from Central Park back to Times Square included a stop on a narrow street due to a disabled vehicle that our bus driver and a few other Buddy Walkers from the bus in front of us literally picked up and moved out of the way so we could continue. 
We walked in Central Park. Porter, Penny and Nana had a blast! Many thanks to Nana for making the trip with us...I couldn't have done it on my own!
The next weekend, we Buddy Walked in the Lehigh Valley with Devan's Designer Genes. 
These two! They're game changers for sure! Love seeing them together!
Again, Nana joined us to make the day possible, while Daddy stayed home with croupy Pax.
This year, our buddy Evan also joined the team. Porter was so happy to see two of his favorite people in the same place. The Lehigh Valley Buddy Walk has so many fun things for the kiddos to do! They always have an amazing day at the Velodrome!  The sun was shining and spirits were high as we spent a day with some amazing friends celebrating some amazing kiddos!
Tomorrow, we'll Buddy Walk for CHOP at Villanova. We can't wait! Praying for good weather and safe travels for all our family and friends who will make the trip to join us. It's our most favorite day of the year!
