Other Black Friday photos

26 Nov

JMan and I spend part of the day walking the beach and checking out an old WW2 outpost. 

We practically had the beach to ourselves which was nice on one hand and kinda sad on the other.

Wish we could have gotten in and around this place, but lots of “Extremely Hazardous” signs and fences said otherwise. I guess photos from over the fence will have to do. 

If you ever get down the NJ shore put Sandy Hook in your GPS and drive to the end! Here’s a link with more info.

My Black Friday

26 Nov

No lines, no waiting, just fresh air and a great view.

Happy Turkey Day

Beyond the mountain of food I’ll also be trying out the following…….and secretly hoping for a boat load of snow! 

New Belgium Accumulation!

6 hour drive, 6 or so prep time, 1 hour eating and 3 more doing the dishes. This New Belgium Accumulation White India Pale Ale never tasted better.

JMan’s cake class

15 Nov

JMan came up with this gem at cake class today. 

See the sun and waves?

They tasted good.

Wok & Roll

15 Nov

Jess and JMan attended a cooking class at Bamboo Restaurant on Sunday. Crab Rangoon and Wonton were the two appitezers they made.

The results where good.

Really good!

Fall in finally here

The leaves are finally falling off our maple tree. Also the Japanese Maple in foreground is at peak color (colour for our friends asross the pond)!

Ding it, I was really hoping for some moving targets!


8 Nov

I think I heard a collective sight when I put pen to paper this am! 

As we’d say in Ireland….that’s done and dusted. Now the big question is who will we end up with for the 4 year.

Random shots

Clockwise: Lathe Carriage gears, GMans school photo, JMans pizza creation and the boys horseplaying.

peter and the starcatcher

We went to see peter and the starcatcher at Cannon Theater yesterday.

Photo by Bret Bahe.

The cast did a great job and Shawn, Bret and all the other theater staff did wonderful work on the production. We all enjoyed the show, fun for the entire family. Buy tickets while you can, show ends next week.
