12th Annual Mighty Texas Dog Walk

This morning our family participated in the 12th Annual Mighty Texas Dog Walk. Trying to beat the Guinness Book of World records for the "Largest Dog Walk" while benefiting a great local Texas Hearing and Service Dog Organization. Madeline's friend Mia had a sleepover last night, so we took her along with us.
Here we are at the start line...

Scooby Doo and his crew were even there!

Walking across the 1st Street Bridge with downtown Austin in the background.

We told M&M to do the buddy system so they wouldn't get separated or lost.

Penny Lane was really enjoying this walk, GO #2048!

A Cowboy walking his little doggies.

Taking a water break and watching the dogs passing by.

M&M had so much fun meeting and petting all these dogs! They did great on the walk too!

Only in Texas right...Proud to be a Texan.

There were BIG dogs...

And LITTLE dogs. :)

Tons of vendors giving away lots of FREE stuff and food.

M&M with all their free goodies.

We made it to the finish line and Penny got her gold medal. We had a lot of fun doing this. We were afraid it was going to get rained out, but the rain stayed away and the clouds kept it cool. We'll definitely be participating again next year!
P.S. Stephen was there too, but he was taking all the pictures.
