Granny Quinn’s trip

Here’s a few photos of my mom’s trip. It was great having her over and we are looking forward to her next visit in August.

Taking in a game

Once every 4 or so years we get in a Red Sox game at Fenway. Last night was a hot one but as always it’s a good time with lots of bad food to eat!

Fenway was hopping with not that many empty seats.

JMan was dressed for the occasion while GMan was his usual trendy self.

3/4 family.

Whole gang.

Here’s a photo from September 2014. The last time we got in a game.

My two Starbuck buddies

I’m rather partial to Starbucks but now our ball of hair can also enjoy a sup of something with a silly name but only one ingredients! It’s on the super secret menu and it’s rightly named a Puppuccino.

My better 1/2 also gets in on the action, but with a slightly longer name and a few more ingredients.

However, here’s a good example of a customer order you really want to be front of:

I need a Double Ristretto Venti Half-Soy Nonfat Decaf Organic Chocolate Brownie Iced Vanilla Double-Shot Gingerbread Frappuccino Extra Hot With Foam Whipped Cream Upside Down Double Blended, One Sweet’N Low and One Nutrasweet, and Ice……oh and I have rewards!

It’s official

It’s official….the for sale sign went up today. It will hit MLS in a bit. Anyone in the market for a great house on a quite street come on over.

As we’d say in Ireland “bhaile ar diol”

It was a good run, 14 years and some change but lots of change for us. The time has come to downsize. I’ll miss 20 Bayberry Road Groton MA for a bit, but like I always say….”I made the big move years ago, everything else is incidental”.

Big boat – Day 7

Today was another vacation day sleep in, breakfast late and a bunch of shows. We started with Madagascar in the Aqua Theater. It was non stop fun aimed at younger kids but you can’t not tap your feet at the theme song.

After lunch GMan tried his hand on the Flowrider. After four rounds he was doing well.

After that we started packing as bags needed to be out and ready by 11pm. Then it was off to the Amber Theater for another show. Unfortunately we were last and ended up in the back row but the special effects were wonderful. Theater folk are so inventive when it come to set design. Necessity is most definitely the mother of all inventions. The whole stage at one point looked like a giant ocean scene with all manner of creatures swimming about, very well done.

Next up was a spot of shopping. The following will set you back 2 million! I was hoping for a black pair but they were out of stock….

Then is was parade time on the main promenade. This time we got good seats and saw the entire show. All I can say is the crew never stops.

After the parade we took in a family friendly comedy show….and yes it was very funny and family friendly. Then it was off to the lip sink face off. Again, a fun filled show with lots of energy.

11:30 or so we finish packing and off to bed.

Happy Anniversary/Halloween

Happy Anniversary to Jess and I and happy Halloween to everyone else. Today is 18 years….and counting….Love you Jess.

Cards, flowers (from Lenore) and Halloween muffins for good measure.
