A trip to the Children's Museum with Mom Mom and Mommy!
I took the day off on a random Friday to spend some QT with Danny Boy.  I'm so glad my mom wanted to join us because we had a great time.  Danny was in heaven and he couldn't have been more perfect.  Mom bought us a family pass for a year - THANK YOU, MOM!!!!!  We are going to take Connor back soon to show him around! We have such an awesome museum!

Celebrating my birthday with the fam!

Thank you, God, for the small reminders of why we send our son to a Catholic School. As we were leaving today and I was rushing Connor to get in the car so we wouldn't be late picking up Danny...he said, "WAIT, Mom! I HAVE to say a quick prayer!" I waited and snapped a picture of him praying in the middle of the Stations of the Cross (SO glad my camera was handy!). It's NOT easy writing that tuition check each month (actually wrote it today!)...I NEEDED that ♥

My Birthday
I had a great birthday!! Tig got me a new light fixture in the kitchen and cubby/lockers for the boys (previous post ~ "My New Toys").  He also filled a bucket with my favorite candy and wrote me the nicest card - and had the boys write me cards too - which I LOVE.  It was one of the nicest birthdays I can remember.  Since my birthday was on a Friday and my dad happened to be out of town...we got a sitter and went to BW's with some friends/family and saved the family party with Connor, Danny and all the kids for Saturday.  The best part was that Colleen and Doug came in town and stayed with us on Friday night!!  I also had a nice day at school - celebrating with 25 kids is the way to go :) and Kristy got me the cutest necklace along with some gift cards from my class :)

My NEW TOYS!!!!!
Thank you, Rudy, Mom&Dad and Tig :)


Danny Boy!
After watching lots and lots and lots of Connor's baseball and football games, it is FINALLY Danny's turn to be a part of the team.  He is by far the youngest, the slowest, and the most clueless...he is also by far the CUTEST! ha!


Warming up!
Go #5!  I am pretty sure the only reason he is playing is to get the jersey and the trophy.  Last week, Pop Pop O came to see his game and after pictures, and a 30 minute the time the game started, Danny lasted about 5 minutes and then cried his eyes out because "I didn't get the ball!!!!!!"  he was devastated and there was NO reasoning with him.  I snuggled him on the bench and we watched his team - well, I watched his team, Pop Pop threw the football with Con and Danny bawled his eyes out until we left!

Go DC United!!!
Look at that determined run!
