We all went to the Buddy Walk in Melbourne, which helps raise awareness to people with Down Syndrome. It was a 3km walk around Princess Park which was more of a run away towards to the playground, ask to be carried by dad, sit down and sulk, or sit in the double pram and cry. Not an easy walk. Sheena did enjoy the picnic afterwards, where she participated in the sack race even though she was 7 years off the minimum age of entry. She just walked over to the starting line, got herself into a sack and lined up with everyone else. It was pretty funny. I had to pick her up and run her over the finish line, becuase the jumping action was a bit much for a little girl. Lets just say we didn't come first (this year).

Sheena is reluctant to get her photo taken at the moment. Her rebelious streak - its "no-ooo", or just not facing the camera. I managed to get her face-on in this photo because she was tugging at my leg pleading to go outside for a play on the trampoline. In the second photo she is asking to go down stairs by signing stairs (we still have a safety gate at the top of the stairs). Yes, she did get her way.
