Mother's Day Classic 2016

We woke up early to attend this year's Mother's Day Classic. It was (I think) our fifth walk and I think we've done it in virtually every weather condition from freezing cold to warm and hot. Last year was windy/stormy. This year was warm, but drizzly.

Amy had been an Ambassador for the event in 2014 and last year me and some of her friends had raised over $12.5k. I hadn't pulled together a fundraising team this year, but maybe next year...

The kids don't protest about the event and actually quite looked forward to it this year. It takes the form of a 5k walk around Lake Burley Griffin. You can opt to run (5k or 10k) which perhaps we will one year!

It was a nice morning. Mother's Day is tricky for us as a family and I worry about the kids, but it's a nice thing to do on the day and a fitting way to remember Amy as she was a stalwart at the event.
