Happy Birthday Avery!

Today we celebrated Avery's 8th birthday. We couldn't have asked for a better day, the weather was amazing. We couldn't help but wonder what the temperature in PA was today, we all reminisced about how hot it always was for Avery's birthday party every year - without fail, it was always in the 90s!

Here's the birthday boy...the obligatory cake-shot.

Nothing like a good old fashioned game of wiffle ball! It's so cool that the kids are old enough to play games like this. I'm so over blind-folding kids for pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey! ..of course I say that knowing that I'm not out the woods yet (Amaya).

We capped off the day with a ride over to Nubble Light in York. I am told that this is the most photographed lighthouse in the world. The kids played on the rocks for the while and Avery speculated about what would happen if he fell in the water.

And of course, if there isn't ice cream involved, you aren't in New

So good to be with everyone, yesterday. It was a perfect day. Loved the softball game. The BIG kids were having just as much fun as the little kids.
