Boating in Newport, RI

We spent last weekend with my extended family in Newport, RI. We had glorious weather for both days and really enjoyed spending time with Derek's family (Mom, Dad and sister plus kids.) It's great that my in-laws have a *really* nice boat for us to relax on and watch the kids go swimming in the harbor. Oh, and who can forget the lobsters and steamers!

Talk to you soon and big hugs to you!

4th of July

We had a wonderful 4th of July in Stamford, CT. Our close friends joined us for the weekend from NYC. The fireworks display on Thursday night was great. Although the weather didn't cooperate with us being able to spend time down at our neighborhood beach, we still had a magnificent time enjoying our company in the backyard with bbq, cool drinks and lots of fun!

Talk to you soon and big hugs to you!



Enjoy the photos!

Here we are all ready for the neighborhood parade for the 4th of July.

Luc sure does look patriotic! Got to love the red super cape, too!

Claire did a great job with the streamers on her bike. We couldn't find her bike helmet so the winter ski helmet did the trick.
