Celebrate Fairfax Festival, Fairfax, VA

When we could only make the last day (Saturday) of the Pets in the Park event in Delaware, we decided at the event to make a spontaneous trip to Fairfax, VA, where we could catch the last day of the event (Sunday Spoilers – haha!) …And Sunday Spoilers we were … Cello, Hooch, and Lager ALL made finals!  It was a fun  last-minute thing to do, and Margarita got to stay in a hotel (Comfort Inn, University Center) for the very first time, and did wonderfully!
