Momzoo – Happy Birthday

Tomorrow is Momzoo’s birthday (4/27).  I wanted to be the first to do a virtual happy birthday, so here it is.

Run to Walk

We have just signed the entire family (Dadzoo, Momzoo, and the 5 kids) up to do the 1 Mile walk.  We have a lot of relatives that are also going to do the Run to Walk.   If anyone wants to join us, feel free to sign up.   We have a cousin that uses this service, and anyone that signs up and lets them know it is for Stoney Alder he will get a discount on his next visit.
