Happy 8th birthday Payton

Payton's had a great time at his 8th birthday party. He had both friends and family attend; what could be better? As usual his Mom made him a great Ninjago cake.
Payton's party was the weekend after his birthday. We weren't going to make him wait until then to have cake and ice cream. I picked up a cake at the store and we had a little celebration at home on his birthday.

Payton's tree

I planted a tree for Payton and Parker last summer. Payton's survived, but sadly Parker's didn't. See that stick on the right in the background? Yeah, that's Parker's tree. This year I replacing 4 out of 5 trees I planted last year. I really wanted these Sugar Maples to grow for their orange fall leaves. I'm switching to Red Maples because they tolerate varying conditions better than the Sugars do.

Liberty Bell

We're out and about today. We're in Philadelphia to see a show. We came early to check another site. We decided on the Liberty Bell. We've been there done that now. We're having lunch now and afterwards we'll head for the afternoon showing of How To Train Your Dragon at the Wells Fargo Center.

New jersey and first win!

Payton's football team received their long awaited new jerseys. Payton is no. 85. The team did the town proud by wearing them in their home opener victory. The team clicked really well and won 27-12. It was pretty sweet.

Don't little kids look good in football uniforms? It is quite a transformation.

Second grade, here comes Payton

Payton's first day of second grade. He was pretty excited and I think really glad to be going back to school. 

Parker too started at a new school the next day. I no longer drive Parker into Doylestown. His new school is just ten minutes away with a Wawa on the route. Sweet.

Parker turned 4

Our little Parker turned 4 years old. Poor Parker. Bad Mom and Dad. No party for Parker, just our family at Giggleberry Fair. Parker didn't feel short changed and he had fun playing with his big brother. Thank God for siblings. Next year Parker will have a proper birthday party.
