Spring has finally Sprung
What a difference a day makes!
May 14th Anniversary Party
|Ana and the girls came home for Uncle Jerry and|
Aunt Kathy's 50th Anniversary dinner, but first
they checked out our camper.
|They had a snack before heading to Rugby|
to swim before the party.
|The girls loved the cutout from|
Andrea and Jeremy's wedding (2004)
|Claire, Riley (babysitter), Lydia, Cecelia,|
and cousins Madisen and Kendra (partly hidden)
|Someone clinked the glasses, so Kathy and Jerry had some fun!|
Uncle Frank, Kathy and Jerry, cousin Roger
|Cousins Sammi, Ana, Suzanne, and Jay|
|Doug, Jerome, Jerry, Wendy, Jill, and Mark|
|Maureen, Steve and Barb, Brad|
|Kathy, Reed, Julie, Connor, and Brody|
|Joni (Jerry's twin), cousins Judy and Roger,|
Bob, Uncle Frank and Aunt Theresa
|Jeremy admitted that he and Andrea|
bought the kuchen-pies
|Jeremy and Andrea 12 years later--|
they added the sign for her mom and dad's

May 3-8 in New York City
I flew from Iowa to NY on May 3rd,
two days before the girls arrived
for our "Girls' Weekend."
Went for a walk up Park Avenue and
back down Lexington
|I spotted "Uncle Fred's" surprise business, :-)|
|found Hunter College,|
and stopped at St. Ignatius Loyola church and heard
a Mass going on. . . did not realize until after
the homily that it was a funeral Mass.
(May he rest in peace)
|St. Vincent Ferrer on Lexington Avenue|
(No funeral here)
|When Sara came, we just "had to" try the Levain Bakery|
before the rest of the gang arrived.
|Two of the Levain cookies we bought to share when|
Ana, Trina, Kelly, and Ari arrived on Thursday
|We all stayed with Donna at the Park Avenue condo,|
|and enjoyed lunch before beginning the grand exploration!|
|Flowers bloomed everywhere in NY (Bloom-berg)|
Good thing the girls knew how to get around
They found St. Patrick's Cathedral
The Lego store was a real treasure!
We headed to Rockefeller Center (no ice)
Then went to NBC studios where the girls
went to a rehearsal for the Seth Myers show,
and Ari and I ate ice cream and hung out
(we weren't 18, so we couldn't go to the show!)
|Couldn't get a tour that day, but|
Trina and Ari went back on Friday.
Ari had her picture taken with a "Rockette"
