One Tribe One Day!

One Tribe One Day is William & Mary's annual giving day. It is a huge deal for Chris' work, and a big day for alumni everywhere. We had lots of fun all day. We went to visit Chris at work in the morning because he left for the day before the girls woke up.

After naps we went back to campus to go to the carnival in the sunken gardens. There was a petting zoo and inflatables to play on.

Eleanor was crazy bold and took off up one of the giant inflatables. Last year Chris went on something similar with her, though it was much smaller, and this year she didn't even wait for him. I was a little worried her first time through that she wasn't going to be able to make it up the big wall, but we have a fearless two year old, for better or for worse. 

The inflatable obstacle course was absolutely her favorite part of the day. I can't count how many times she ran through the thing and then was shouting "again, again" before she was even off the slide. 

After the carnival we headed over to The Virginia Beer Company for another alumni event. The brewery was shut down except for W&M alumni so it was a lot of fun. The guys who own the brewery are W&M alumni who Chris works with and were so gracious to host and give out free drinks. Thanks VA Beer Co!

And a final message from Eleanor for OTOD:

These are the greatest pictures! Eleanor is certainly becoming a daredevil! Really proud of Chris and his part in raising so much money! Looks like a wonderful time.
