What a great day for a walk.....

Proverbs 20:7 The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.

We went on a 5 mile walk today, so this verse from our daily Proverb really stuck out to me!!

Our walk started at our house this morning (okay, actually we started out on our bikes.) From there we rode over to the house of one of our church members. That is where our walk really began. We left their house and walked to the Bismarck Elks Club. This was where the MS Walk began this morning.

The husband of the family that we met up with this morning has MS. This year we got several of our church members together, all wearing our church t-shirts and walked the walk together. It was a great time to fellowship and to show this family that we are there with them through all that they are going through.

We left the Elks lodge and the first part of our walk took us past the Bismarck zoo. It was a great way to start everything off. The kids were entertained with all the animals and it allowed
for a slower start for those of us that are still
trying to get in shape!!

After we passed the zoo it was on along the path that goes by the Missouri River. It was so beautiful!!! Since spring is finally here everything has turned green, trees and flowers are blooming, and birds are EVERYWHERE!!

After we went past the river we walked through a park and made our way back to the Elks Club. There we shared some pizza and fruit and headed on our way back home. After getting back to our friends house and getting our bikes we came home and COLLAPSED!!!!

And to think - we did all that before noon!!! No wonder I'm ready for a nap now!!!
