National Breastfeeding Week Celebration

Did you know this is National Breastfeeding Week? Neither did I until a La Leche League member invited me to the local walk and picnic to photograph the event and hang out. I had a really great time getting to meet and know some of the families and support the mommies.

The MC, Kim, was unfortunately not able to participate in the walk due to hip surgery not too long ago but was all smiles as she greeted the large group.

Mayor Dyster presented accolades to Gina and Lynda for their 20 years of working to help mothers breastfeed.

There were infants that breastfed at the picnic...

... and toddlers! His shirt says "I'm a breast man" and his mommy's says "Yes! I'm still breastfeeding!"

Most of the kids had the opportunity to enjoy playing in the water park for about an hour. I think this little guy shows us what an awesome time the event-goers had all in all!

Thank you La Leche League for inviting me to photograph this special event for you!
