Donny's Birthday

As a Washington Nationals baseball fan, you couldn't have a more perfect birthday. Donny's 34th fell on the first Nationals playoff game (now we ended up losing that game, so that could've gone better for the birthday boy!) We started the day with a dozen Dunkin Donuts and presents at breakfast, and right after lunchtime we scooped Ava and Sophie out of school early for the afternoon game. We had a blast cheering on our favorite team.
Sophie lost her other front tooth!! She's all set to sing "All I Want for Christmas is my two front teeth..."

We celebrated some the weekend before. And of course celebrated our niece Marley who shares Donny's birthday.

Here we are explaining our afternoon to Danny. This dinner occurred just an hour after I drove my mini-van into the garage and the van's door was knocked onto the driveway. Breezy little drive to the body shop! Oops!
This was the opposite of an early birthday present

Cox Farms love

One of my favorite fall traditions. Kettle corn, slides, hayride, tractors and farm animals. It is so much fun, even on a summer-feeling afternoon.

The next week we took advantage of the all-day admission with Lily's field trip in the morning, and we took everyone back after school. The place is empty, and admission is half price. So much fun!
