Another Season of Fall Ball

Baseball can happen year-round if there’s a desire to play, and C definitely has more baseball to play than can be done just in the spring. He met a whole new crew for fall ball, playing for the San Diego Padres. Maybe it’s time to head to the sunny West Coast for a future season!

Start of Fall at Cox Farms

Another fall season, and another great day spent at Cox Farms with cousins! It was sunnier and warmer than last year, but the hayride, apple cider doughnuts and pumpkin picking got us in the mood for the best season of the year!

1st Day of 1st Grade!

And just like that, summer went by in a flash! And like a true pro, with a whole year under his belt, C returned to school with the confidence and excitement of an upper classman. We can’t wait to see what the year holds!

Time at the County Fair!

Arlington County puts on a good fair, and we enjoyed as much as we could during yet another year! It was a hot one, but it didn’t stop the rides, games and pursuit of as much free junk as possible with the Kohr buddies.

Best of the Rest of Destin

We covered a lot of ground in Destin, and took a lot of photos. Here are highlights of the rest of our week!

Floridian Pirates

We haven’t yet missed a chance to set sail for the high seas aboard a pirate ship, and Destin was no different! This time, the heat was a little much though. But, we made the most of the sweaty fun by hunting for treasuring, gaining key pirate skills and enjoying a little dance party at…

No Crabs But Still Fun at Crab Island

One of Destin’s coolest locations is Crab Island, a sandbar accessible only by boat and a true playground – pontoon boats, jet skis, over-water ninja warrior courses, restaurants and other vendors. The entire family enjoyed a great half day out on the water together – including on our two-slide boat and jet ski!

Diving in Destin

Two of the fifteen dusted off their diving certifications to head about 60-70 feet underwater and explore sea life in Destin. We visited the main Destin Bridge site, sunken to create an artificial reef in the 70s, as well as the East and North Bridge sites, which were teeming with fish, corals and other creatures.

Photos on the Beach

We used time together in Destin for a family photo shoot. We managed to get nearly 400 photos in 40 minutes as the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. Some participants were easier to work with than others, but all the family came home with some great shots!
