Two Birthsdays are better than One

Happy Birthday J.R. !
Happy Birthday Grandma !

Last weekend J.R. celebrated his second birthday and Mommy threw a surprise party for Grandma into the mix. The weather could not have been better, and a big family definitely helps with the action and fun of the event. (Even if it doesn't make Mommy's work easier, it was well worth the effort.)

As if it wasn't unforgettable anyway, there are over 200 pictures of happy kids of all ages playing, unwrapping presents and enjoying a summer day in April spent with the family.

I hope to see you all again next year ...

So I don't know nothing about football

Last night I learned that ...
  • Linebackers are big and slow - not very tall though
  • Running Backs are lightning fast
  • Deep down inside they all are kinda like the basketball people I grew up with. They have the same team-fun-sport spirit that you can find in any athlete who is serious about their sport, but doesn't forget to have fun.
  • They seem to be really nice, fun, down to earth, patient, team people who enjoy a nice game of hoops.
OK, so they are in incredible physical shape and they do not make their money playing Basketball (I have seen better) - but that was the beauty of it.

The game last night was a fund raiser basketball game for the Westwood High School between the High School Booster All Stars and the NE Patriots.
They were not seriously playing - just a relaxed fun game.
Here are the pix:

The Pats players who attended were:
