Babies! On the March!

You'd think babies would tire easily, but they do not! It's been another great year shooting for the March of Dimes Colorado and their annual March for Babies, which was this past weekend. And for those of you wondering, I still have no babies of my own (other than a particular Lensbaby).

This year was much like years past, lots of dedications, lots of color, lots of babies, but this year did see a significant change. This is the first year that the March for Babies was held in City Park and what a great place to hold the annual walk! First, it's self contained so no more worries about getting hit by cars or turning down the wrong street or racing to catch a mall shuttle to get ahead of the pack. Second, there is so much grass! It's like A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat! It definitely made the whole feel of the event much more friendly like a big picnic! Which there was, sponsored by K-mart, as well as games and activities and even some warm up Zumba lessons! Yeah, I'm definitely considering "gettin jiggy wit it" for those of you that are old enough to remember.

And at the end of the day, it really is all about healthy kids. And a magic show. Cause magic shows are cool. Also, can you believe that this is my fifth year shooting this great event? Seriously, you'd think I'd have a baby by now.

And in case you were wondering, the Denver march raised just around 1 million dollars. None too shabby. Them babies have some deep pockets.
