Today we took Felix for a ride on his new little tricycle, which has a parent handle so we can push him. He thinks it's fantastic. It has a little cup holder so he can have a drink whenever he feels like it, and a toy mobile phone attached for him to play with. A lot more snazzy than anything I ever had as a kid, that's for sure (although my Dad did help Santa fix up a second hand bike for Christmas once and, as a result, it was the most popular bike on the street on Christmas Day!). We took one of the dogs for a walk at the same time, and Felix loved being able to reach out and pat the dog while we walked along. He loves the sunshine and the trees, and was constantly pointing out different things along the way. It was quite warm today so Felix needed a hat on, which proved problematic in the wind. Nathan had to run back a couple of times to pick it up as it blew away. I think Felix was thankful it kept blowing off because he hates wearing hats, so the wind did him a favour!

Well, tomorrow is the day we have been looking forward to for a really long time; it's Buddy Walk Day! We have everything ready by the front door for our 5.30am departure in the morning. All up tomorrow, we will do about 9 hours driving there and back, but we wouldn't miss it for the world! It looks like being a beautiful, warm day; absolutely perfect for a walk. I am so excited to be part of such a wonderful community of people, all joining together out of love and support for those with Down Syndrome. Last year we enjoyed watching dance performances and singing by some of the kids, and I'm really looking forward to that again. The crowd was really involved and the kids were all so enthusiastic! We will be meeting up with some beautiful people who are coming into the city to walk with us and celebrate Felix's life. We are really thankful to all of you who are coming in to be part of our special day tomorrow. Can't wait to see you all.
