The Wedding part 2

Here are the pictures from the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. I reached the max of pictures from the wedding post.

Jenna dressed as Cinderella.

Jenna at the petting zoo. Great idea - they used stuff animals instead of real ones!

Jenna and Madison - Jenna was so excited to have Elmo as her best friend.

The Wedding!

Friday October 27 - Michele and Richie's wedding finally arrived. All went well. Bride looked beautiful and the groom looked very handsome. My fears of Jenna not walking down the aisle did not come true. She was a trooper holding my hand both up and down the aisle. She was so good the entire night until she fell asleep around 1030pm. She really enjoyed herself as did everyone else. It was a great time Friday night and we all needed Saturday to recover! Sunday Jenna and I spent the afternoon with Madison, Jennifer and Mark at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. They were celebrating Halloween by having children dress up in their costumes. I dressed Jenna as Cinderella and Madison was Elmo. You can imagine how excited Jenna was to have her best friend as Elmo.

Jenna and I walking down the aisle. Still can't believe she walked down!

Weekend with Grandma

This weekend Jenna had a sleepover at Grandma Gladys' house. She enjoyed visiting Great Nanny and Cousins Monica and Amanda on Saturday. Jenna also enjoyed her outing to church with Grandma. Of course the highlight of Jenna's weekend, besides spending time with Grandma was playing with Rudy. She loves to play ball and take him out for walks. I bet Rudy was happy to see Jenna go so he could take a nap!

Dogsitting Weekend

Mike, Jenna and I got to dogsit Murphy for the weekend, while Mom and Jason were out of town. What an experience taking care of a puppy and a 2 year old. Both Murphy and Jenna kept me on my toes. Saturday was the last dress fitting for Michele's wedding. Hard to believe it will be here in less than 2 weeks! Sunday Jenna and I came back into Brooklyn to celebrate her friend Faith's 2nd Birthday. We had such a great time seeing all of Jenna's Tutor Time friends. That evening we took a ride over to Uncle Thomas and Aunt Susan's house to visit with Brandon and Ethan. They just turned 2 on October 6. Jenna had a great time playing with them. Since I was off Monday I took Jenna to a cute little park in Patchogue off the water. We had a great time playing at the playground and the weather was perfect.

Happy 2nd Birthday Faith!

We survived!!!!!

So we survived our camping weekend, though if you hear the way Mike tells it, you would think otherwise. We found a very family friendly campground in Greenport, LI. Jennifer, Mark and Madison met us out there and we had such a great time. The girls were so well behaved and really had a blast. We took them pumpkin picking on Saturday at Harbes Farm out near the campgrounds. Saturday night the campground had a DJ and the girls danced the night away. Weather was perfect, save for the downpour Sunday morning. We finished up the weekend with a nice walk around Port Jefferson since the sun finally decided to show itself. We really had a great weekend - Aunt Linda and Uncle Rick should be happy to hear that Jenna is ready to camp again next year.

Jenna playing at the playground. They had this really cool wooden train for the kids to play on. You couldn't drag her away from it.
