July Group Gatherings

I know many of us are starting to meet each other as we've become pretty close. So I thought it would be neat to keep an "album". Just post a picture of the gathering on this thread!

I saw that Katy and Erika posted some pics, and I'll post some here too. We had a great time! It was so nice to meet them - they are both wonderful! The boys were so cute together and Ashlynne (Erika's DD) was adorable too! I have a really cute pic of Ashlynne and my niece Emily that I will post later....

Samantha, Dylan, Kristina, Kailey, Stacey & Ben in Ottawa, Canada.

Our day today was a blast! And I just want to say that Stacey & Kristina are amazing ladies! They are so fun, down to earth & easy to talk to, we really had a wonderful time!
We went to lunch, then shopping and then we went to the wave pool! The babies loved it!

Here's some pics. Sorry there's so many, but when you have 3 gorgeous babies it's hard to narrow it down.

Here's all 3 babies! Kailey, Ben & Dylan

So where did we leave this Sam? Are you making reservations or do you want me to? (I think we should... we stand to take up ALL the highchairs in the place... LOL!) Are we including the DHs?

My Dh is not going to be a happy camper if I leave him at Sam's house alone while we shop. He is awesome with kids, though, so he should be a great help. Wink

Wonderful Meagan! Tell him my boys are Aaron and Jake and they like video games and soccer. They can meet us at the end of the shopping line at supper time SmileROFL

Yeah, you laugh now. My DH is a kid magnet. It is absolutely freaky. I have a group of four shy, snooty cousins ranging in age from 7 - 15 who never warm up to anyone. Within 5 minutes of meeting him, they were hugging him, laughing, and wanting to do whatever he was doing. :roll: He'd probably have a great time hanging out with your guys. We should just send them to a sports outlet or something.

I am HOPING my DH can make it too but work is a problem these days since one of the other supervisors is out on medical leave. DH and the other supers are filling in. He hopes the sick guy will be back soon. (John loves when I call him"Super". Sorry OT). Anyway Christa yes bring Dh and I can try to make ressies for the Quarter Deck? How many people?

It seems like: 7-8 adults, 3 babies in highchairs, and 3 kids? Is that right?

Meagan, my DH is a kid magnet also... hmm between the two of them the entire town of Kittery might have to be locked down... pied pipers anyone? LOL

My Dh won't be there so I will be looking for someone to keep them occupied so we can talk. I guess I picked the right group! Biggrin
I also need an extra pair of hands to push the second stoller. :roll:

Well, my DH recently stayed with friends in NC (he was interviewing for jobs) and helped them take care of their DD. In particular he persuaded her to sleep, the same way he does with Benjamin. He has no problem taking care of other people's children! WinkBiggrin

Worse is when they have no idea! They're just plotting to plot! I'll probably find out what he has planned right on that day... watch him decide not to show up... :roll:

Tell him there will be lots of golf stuff. That gets my DH everywhere.

Sadly, he hates golf. Is there a lot of baseball stuff? Or another die-hard fan? He *might* go if he thinks there's someone to talk to. Wink

Sorry, my DH doesn't believe that there are any other sports worth watching besides soccer and boxing. :roll:

How about Kyle, Stacey. Does he like baseball. MH loves all sports but like I said he may not be able to go unless the guy that's out comes back to work.
How about getting to hang out with 4 STUNNING women? That's not enough!?

Hey Sam, just want to confirm that my DH is coming with us. Smile I may however only be able to do lunch and not shopping - all of a sudden got a crapload of work in. :roll: Can't wait to meet all of you!

NO SHOPPING!! :shock: I think that is one of the 10 commandments. Thou shall shop. Right?
Well at least we will get to meet for lunch. I just need to remember to call on Sunday to reserve the table. Feel free everyone to drop me reminders! Wink
We said 1pm right?

Actually I hate shopping. Wink But I'm willing to tolerate it for quality time spent with friends. Wink

I wish I knew how to run a chron job... I would spam your email with reminders. WinkBiggrin

Yes, 1pm. See you there!

Don't worry about the shopping. Stacey, Meagan and I will do damage enough for you!

I am sure one of the smarties on this site would know how to have reminders sent hourly! Wink

See you at 1pm on Monday at the Quarter Deck. :jumpingbeans:

Well thank goodness Meagan was there! Wink

OK... now DH wants to know what topic of conversation to expect. Hmm... could it be... our babies?!?! Wink I think he is feeling a bit left out. Anyone else's DH feel like he is only coming along for the ride? Wink

Well... Stacey was early...Christa's Dh was charming and my DH and Meagan's DH stayed home!!! :o We had a great time but we still couldn't get Christa to eat ANY chocolate but I may get another shot at her if we meet up again!
Stacey came over with the family and had a cookout with us before heading off to find a hotel. Christa, you totally should have followed us and had dinner here!
We had lots of fun and it was awesome to meet everyone! I think we hold the record for most Cuties in one place, four. Anyone done more?
Oh and did I mention both Bens are soooo cute and Stacey's boys clean their plate and use their manner?!!
Great day and pics to follow but not from me. :roll:

I can eat a little bit of chocolate now!! I just didn't realize you pulling out the Godiva box was an invitation. Wink Next time you have to open it up and show me what's available. Wink

I've eaten a couple of slices of pizza and Benjamin seemed OK, had some "spitties" so I should probably lay off, but a couple of pieces of chocolate (especially dark chocolate... yum...) isn't the issue it once was. Wink

Well, we just have to plan our next get-together now! Smile

Stacey and Christa, I so enjoyed meeting both of you, the kids, and your DH's. Christa's husband looks so much like Michael Gross from Family Ties! Stacey's son, Aaron, really entertained Brian out on the front yard at Samantha's house and was a real ham acting out his own TV show for John's video camera. You can see pictures of our get-together (along with various vacation pics) at:

I had a great time seeing Colleen and finally getting to meet the rest of the family the weekend before last. Kathleen danced like an angel and Sean and Brian had a blast. Here's pictures:

Great pics Meagan. Look like they had tons of fun playing together. I saw a couple of mischievous looks too like they were plotting something. I hope no one got attacked.
