Saturday, June 17- Paint the Town Red Day- We've been planning this day for about 1.5 months now. It was our first big "Mid-Singles" activity for McLean Stake (non-Mormon readers- this translates to "big singles activity for my local congregation and region"). We put a ton of work into this. (We being mostly Brenda and me, with tons of help from Jeremy, Jen, Steph, Staci, John, Gavin, Kara, and more.)
The schedule went as follows- 9 am- Temple Session, 11:30- lunch at Red Sage Grill, 1:20 pm- Nats. v Yankees game, 8pm- Rooftop Party. I don't have pictures from the temple or lunch, but keep on scrolling down for lots of pictures from the game and the party. We had a GREAT turnout at all events, and we are VERY happy with the final result. We had catering by Red Hot and Blue (and I still can't believe there were leftovers- the food was delicious!), music a la Stephanie, and oh yeah, we rented out the club-penthouse of one of the tallest buildings in Arlington. All in all- a fabulous day! I am exhausted but thrilled.
Tons of thanks to everyone who helped to make it a great day!
This pic is Johnny Damon doing a little pimping for the crowds at RFK. There were clearly more Yanks fans than Nats fans in the stadium (or maybe they were just louder!), but it doesn't matter- the Nats still pulled it out and won it! Woo-hoo! Let's hear it for the home town team!
