Some of the fellas got to chatting over email last month and decided to plan a little get-together for this October. Meet up, gather the families, have a few drinks, and generally catch up on whats been going on. Steve-O's place in CT was chosen as a perfect halfway spot for those coming from Beantown and those of us coming from NJ...Essentially 245 miles away for each of us. Some of the others had a little shorter ride.
Once the date was picked it was decided that we should do a little early Thanksgiving feast, complete with some deep fried birds and all the fixings. A FakesGiving, if you will!
Giddy up! With 10 adults and 9 kiddos (I think) (and I use the term "adults" loosely), we knew we'd be in for a great weekend! Steve-O, that has to be a record for the most amount of people bunking under your roof in one night, rigth?
A series of photos from the trip:
Can't beat ending the night with a raging fire in the pit and a Sox win (though some of us had cashed it in before the 9th!
It was a little crazy with so many little ones running around underfoot, and the traffic was terrible to and fro, but we had a great time seeing everyone and we're already looking forward to 2014!
Thanks again to Steve and Christy for hosting everyone....hope we didn't trash the place too bad!
HUGE weekend for Boston sports and #BabyJ was right there with her teams cheering them on as loudly as possible!
The weekend started out with a 5th place, and top placed American, finish for our buddy Tim O'Donnell at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii and rouned out with big come-from-behind victories for the Patriots and the Red Sox!
Erin, Matt, and BabyMJO made the trip down this past weekend for a Friday wedding down in Delaware and then visited with us for Saturday and Sunday. No real recap here...just a bunch of photos....Enjoy.
Almost impossible to get a photo of the two cousins together...I thought this one was pretty funny!
J is really into feet right now...hence why she wanted to touch MJO's! She's also really into belly buttons and will constantly ask people to lift up their shirts so she can see it! It's pretty funny, right up until she jams her little finger in there!
And a BIG thanks to Matt for helping me bust up these shipping pallets. I'll clean them up, pull the nails, and then hang them on the wall in our family room as a great accent piece. Can't wait to see it all finished in a few weeks!
This past weekend I had to make a solo trip up to the Bean to see BabyMJO get baptized. Kelly stayed behind with a sick BabyJ and they were certainly both missed! I spent Friday night with my folks and then Saturday night over at Erin and Matt's...below is a quick photo recap of the weekend.
Izzy-dog hasn't gotten much attention in the past few months...so she was really excited to play with someone. And by play I mean try to climb all over me!
The big moment!
Not even a peep out of her!
Erin, Matt, and BabyMJO are en route to Jerz as we speak, so they'll be able to see Kelly and BabyJ soon! It's been a while since the cousins hung out....
