By the way, we lost about 30 to 50 pictures. Please don't feel slighted if you don't see your picture below. I'll try and round up pictures from the other folks with cameras and post those as well.
The whole family - 25 July 09 - Westbrook, Conn.
Several generations on hand to meet M&M. Above: Aunt Vera, Aunt Jane, Michelle, Uncle Ray.
The first week in CT, we rented a beach house in West Brook and had a great time connecting with (and introducing the babies to) our old friends. Felt like we were getting the band back together!
After a nice couple days with Jeff and Laura, it was time to head back to Connecticut. But we couldn't possibly leave the Boston area without first chiseling a free pancake breakfast from Kevin, Toni, Leni & Zoe. Kevin is one of my oldest friends in the Boston area, and we were thrilled that his parole officer gave him a waiver for the day to allow him to visit with the kids. Seriously, as always, the Hicks-Dutt crew came threw with a great breakfast to send us off back to the motherland.
Special thanks again to Dad for helping with all the logistics; Nedra for the great cake and toys, Aunt Heather for the extra help with getting settled in; Mom & Tom; Jeff & Laura for letting a family of four invade their home; Kevin & Toni for the great meal; Mark & Lauren a weeks use of the wagon and for the great pizza; Austin and John for the rides to airport; and to Mike who kindly prevented our car from getting towed away back in California.
