11 Years




So much has happened in the last 11 years and 1 day.  June 27, 2002 seems like yesterday and ages ago at the same time.  We've moved I-don't-even-know-how-many-times (twice cross-country); bought 3 homes; had a beautiful baby girl; and of course faced family loss together. 

I love you, Tony.  I'm looking forward to many more years.  Together.

Building a Garden

As you can see, Jill dressed herself on Wednesday.
 After I picked Jill up from Tyla's house, we headed to the library for Lego night.

Jill's real garden in the backyard - she's been watering it every night.

Chatham - This is the Life

 It would be an understatement to say that Mary Ellen's parents' house is nice.  It's amazing.
 We arrived late Friday afternoon.  Jill couldn't wait to get to the beach.


 Should've packed her suit!
 Saturday - beachin' it

 It took me 33 years to have a drink at the Chatham Bars Inn.  It took Jill 3.5.

 back at the beach Sunday morning - we stopped for breakfast sandwiches and brought them along for a picnic







 Saturday night after dinner out
 very excited to see the seals 
the seals!


Florida: Orange You Glad You're Here?

It seems like ages ago, but it was only last week that I had the opportunity to go to Ft. Lauderdale for a few days for work.

Monday afternoon - this was the view from my balancy looking to the left.
 ahhhhh the beach
I strategically planned my flight to arrive early enough to meet Justine, my college roommate, and her family for time on the beach and in the pool.  We enjoyed a delicious lunch with my friend/co-worker/travel buddy, Tara, complete with a pitcher of mojitos.
 Julie, Justine and Lily live somewhat closeby in Boca Raton.

Where Did This Rhythm Come From?

You should've seen Tony's face when she did this move.  He looked concerned.  Very concerned.  It was HYSTERICAL!

Fire Muster

This weekend was a bit of a bust, to be honest with you.  The stomach bug ripped through me and Tone and took our overnighting on the boat plans for a ride.  It took all boating plans out of the picture and we actually just (barely) ate plain chicken sandwiches for dinner on the boatyard Saturday night. 

We made the most of Sunday when Jill and I went to the Fire Muster in the town Common.  Here are some pictures from our afternoon adventure:

Playdate at Point Street and Meeting Elizabeth

After picking Jill up from Tyla's house Thursday afternoon, we headed to Carah's parents' house. This is the picture I got with my phone when Carah asked the kids to look at Meg and smile. 
 good listening, guys
Carah and Elizabeth
Elizabeth is 4 months old and weighs 18lbs. She is a sweetie pie.
 Here's a picture I stole from Facebook (what a creep) because it was so stinkin' cute!
Jill, Patrick and Thomas played really well together.  Jill had no interest in Elizabeth and gave me a funny look when she saw me holding her.  Then she jumped in the hot tub with Mr. Dawe and his martini and the gang and forgot about Mom paying attention to anyone besides her.

Let the Boating Season Begin

On Sunday, Tony and I took the boat out for the first ride of the season.

 relaxing and oh-so-nice


 not a shabby view for a Sunday evening
