"Try It, You'll Like It!"

We had an awesome Fall kickoff weekend! Fletch got to experience two of his favorite things-TV show Yo Gabba Gabba and fire trucks-up close and personal. On Friday night, Yo Gabba Gabba Live came to Fairfax. It's the stage version of the popular kids show. 

The whole gang was there-DJ Lance Rock, Muno, Foofa, Toodee, Brobee and Plex.

Most of the time was spent dancing but the only picture captured of Fletch at the event was a moment of calm mixed with anticipation:

On Saturday, we went to the Fall for Fairfax Festival. It's the first family event of autumn. Both festivals are held on the grounds of the Fairfax County Government Center, which is walking distance from our house.  But the weather was chilly and rainy, so we drove. One of the main attractions is the fire trucks. You get an up close and personal look. 

You get to try out the equipment

And get a sense of how big these vehicles really are

Fletch went on his first pony ride:

There was a petting zoo:

And the characters from Madagascar paid a visit:

Despite the weather we had an action packed weekend!
