Last weekend, Seamus and I joined Jen and Ethan Weisser for a mommy/son road trip to our first LPA regional! It was held in Long Branch, NJ and the hotel was right on the beach.
After we checked in, we enjoyed walking along the boardwalk and stopped for lunch. Then it was off to explore the hotel and meet some new friends!
We attended a fantastic fire safety demonstration, presented by an LP firefighter. What a great role model! The boys got to climb into a real fire truck.
We got to meet Tracy Sharp and her adorable son Kullen!
We hung out in the lobby with friends for a while, and then headed upstairs for some “quiet time” before the banquet. Our boys got all spiffed up for the fancy dinner!
They wasted no time in getting right out there on the dance floor. All kids had such a great time showing off their moves!
Just a few of the hot mamas! Leslie, me, Jen and Susan!
The boys partied hard and crashed hard! When we woke up Sunday morning, we could really appreciate the beautiful view from our balcony.
Sunday morning was spent enjoying a delicious breakfast, and then heading back to the hotel when the kiddos played for hours. Our friend Erik’s dad helped them all make paper airplanes, and they could not have been happier!
A few of the cuties…Ethan, Seamus, Hailey and Sofia. Seamus and I actually got to meet Sofia a few years ago in NY at one of Preston’s birthday parties! It was so nice to see them again.
Time to leave…and they didn’t want to go! We had such a great time. Luckily their frowns were turned upside down with a ride on the luggage cart.
Next year, our own Mohawk Valley chapter is hosting the Fall 2012 regional! Looking forward to hosting for all of these wonderful people! Thanks again, Garden State chapter!
