~ DADDY-DAYS 2 ~

Continuing on with our vacation weeks with daddy...we took the kids to a local amusement park that we used to frequent when we were kids! It still proved to be fun, and they added fans with water sprays for the hot days; which it was hot this day!!! Eddie couldn't wait to drive mommy around :)



Eddie just LOVED this :)
This is how Maddy went thru the haunted house :)

Mia LOVES motorcycles (to daddy's dismay) and she was
thrilled to find a pink one!!
My very favorite picture of the day :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Oh, the mommies and daddies (that would be us and our friends Barb & Tom) made time for an adult night. We all drove into the city for a yummy dinner in little Italy and, of course, dessert at Ferrara's bakery ~ double yum! We walked thru Chinatown and stopped at a great store Meaghan Grace's mommy told me about, Pearl River Market. It had 3 floors of all things China! I bought Mia a few things and our friends actually found 2 beautiful tables there! It was a very fun, relaxing night.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
O.k, so on to our daddy-days...we drove into Southhampton, which is a pretty town we used to frequent when the kids were real young (and haven't been back to since) - it is such a pretty area...it was also daddy's birthday and we hope we made it a good one for him :)
This is our group at a picnic table in the park -
we packed snacks (because all of our kids LOVE to eat!)
and the kids played on the playground and ate, ate, ate!
Ohhh,how they love each other :)


Brandon adores Mia ~ the other day he played with
her in her room for over an hour :)

The prettiest girl...
in the whole wide world!
and such a character to boot !

Sweet Maddy ~
After playing and eating we strolled thru the town. It is so quaint and pretty. Some of the stores we remembered where either no longer there or where closed because of the time - the dad's didn't mind as much as us girls! We then had a rather late dinner (due to service!), but the kids kept each other busy and we had a good dinner - another good, good day!

A First Time For Fishing: Our daddy has always loved fishing and spent may hours with his own day fishing. He often takes the boys and on this day, he taught our friends dad and their kids to fish...
Alexa & Anthony on the pier
while the older kids fished, the younger ones played nearby
on the rocks ~

Max is king of the rocks!
What a view we had!

Me and the two pretty-girls!

All of a sudden, we hear cheers and yelling from pier:
Brandon had caught his first fish!!!!
We all came running and cheered him on ~

The little people sure had fun on the rocks ~
we always have fun with this special family
we are blessed :)
