This past weekend was an eventful one! We ventured up to New Jersey to celebrate the (belated) joint birthdays of my grandparents, who both turned the big 8-0 this year. It was a great weekend of family reunion time, seeing cousins and relatives I haven't seen in years!
We enjoyed a day of games, drinking and eating, followed by a luncheon on Sunday with more of the same. It's a beautiful thing to bring a family together, share memories and celebrate. We're super lucky to have such great grandparents; I always feel like I hit the grandparents jackpot!
All of the grandkids! I'm the oldest, if it's not abundantly obvious. I felt old, y'all!
We had every intention of spending a portion of the rest of the weekend in New York, but sadly, Sean managed to sustain a serious leg injury while playing soccer with the family. We're still waiting for the full word on that, but let me say: life seems really stressful until you don't have a healthy body, and then you know real stress. We're lucky it's not worse, but it hasn't stopped me from complaining about having to do all his chores yet. It's a good reminder that despite how I might complain sometimes, he does plenty around this house!
To make ourselves feel better about our poor fortune and canceled vacation plans, we made a point to stop at the famous Brown Dog Ice Cream, where I had scoops of black raspberry and lemon poppyseed ice cream. Delicious!
