Ava's 1st Birthday Party and the AA County Fair

Today was a very busy day at the Mraz house...and a very special one. Today we began our afternoon by celebrating Ava's 1st Birthday. It was a very special time spend with some of our very special family...our church family. Ava looked especially pretty today in her birthday dress that her grandma bought for her.

Ava had lots of her friends come to her party...

More friends...
...and even more...

I believe Ava's favorite part may have been the cake...what do you think? Thanks Ava for letting us spend time with you celebrating your very special are certainly very special to us.

After we left all the fun at Ava's party we headed over to check out the Anne Arundel county Fair...we started with a few pig races...what is a fair without a good pig race!!

We checked out the Brosey's award winning cow...

...and their award winning pig...

...and let's not forget the award winning lambs...I'm seeing a pattern here...congratulations to all the Brosey's for a job well done!!

Then we took in a tractor pull...
And finished the evening with a walk on the Midway...there is just something cool about a county fair!!

Grandparents Day

Well, my big news for this week is that I got to go to Tayden's Grandparents Day program at his preschool. I flew out there on Monday morning and on Tuesday morning I went to school with him for his program. It was very cute, they sang songs and he made me a card in the shape of a heart, along with a self portrait and we had donuts with juice. I think that was Tayden and Tia's favorite part. We spent the rest of the time playing...we went to the play ground (the outside one and the one at the mall), we played ball, we read books and of course, we played dinosaur...a favorite of his and Tia's these days. It was great and Nana had a wonderful time...a big thanks to my wonderful husband who bought me the plane ticket so that I could go. Just for the record...Jerry and I think this Nana and Papa thing is WAY cool!!

Labor Day Weekend

Well, we had a great Labor Day weekend...we had the kids visiting and it was very nice to get to spent some time with them. We went for a lunch cruise on the Spirit of Washington and spent a lot of quality playing time. As you can see Tayden loved the play ground and little Ms. Tia enjoyed some good chow. Jerry took the big kids to see a Nationals game in the new stadium and Nana stayed home and played with the kids...I think Nana got the best end of the deal, even if the Nats did win!!

Twayne and Amanda had an opportunity to have a date night, which I think they enjoyed.

All in all everyone had a great weekend and hopefully it won't be too long until we are all together again!!
