Well, the Caps lost last night. . .miserably so. . .6 to 2! But, hey, I gotta say, they hung in there! They are a very young team and yet they got to the seventh game of the second round of the Playoffs. They are growing and maturing. Just wait until next year!!! Watch out Penguins!
And, my little dudely is growing and maturing, too.
Tomorrow is his third birthday. We have a busy birthday weekend planned: Grandpa Dave comes into town late tonight and Aidan and I will go pick him up at Dulles. Then, tomorrow morning we're taking Aidan to see the Big Trucks in Leesburg--it's some sort of Annual Event. . .not really sure what to expect, but Aidan loves Big Trucks! Then, after his nap, we'll have Grandpa and Grandma Harrison come out and we'll go to dinner to celebrate Aidan's big day. This will be followed by Cake and ice cream and. . .presents!!! Daddy and I got him a new big boy bike--shhhh!!! Don't tell!
On Saturday, we will go down to the Ashburn Ice House and celebrate his birthday with an Ice Skating party.
I've got the Goodie Bags, batteries, camera and video camera all set. Pictures, etc. will be forthcoming soon thereafter. Later that evening we will grill hot dogs out--one of Aidan's favorites--and then just play outside--weather permitting.
Sunday, Daddy has to work, so Aidan and I will go to church by ourselves and then take Grandpa Dave down into D. C. to see the Museum of American History. I know that doesn't sound like fun for a 3 year old, but he does amazingly well with the museums and he actually likes history, as long as I explain it in 3 year old terms!
Monday we will take a drive down near Culpeper to see a battlefield (near Goldvein, I think) that my dad wants to see. I'm pretty sure it's the Battle of Brandywine Station. We have a lot of battlefields here in Northern Virginia commemorating "The War between the States." : )
Anyway, we're looking forward to it all.
