Five Fun Days

We had a whirlwind long weekend of fun and friends!  It’s become a tradition to have Seamus’ checkups at DuPont just before Memorial Day weekend, and make it into a little mini-vacation!

Seamus and Ethan both had their checkups on the same day!  Here they are sporting their super-cool armbands after getting a blood draw.  Seamus got a thumbs-up from both Dr. Bober and Dr. Mackenzie – see them again in a year!


We had fun playing on the playground before checking in at Ronald McDonald House.  Liam thinks Ethan is funny!


The two lovebirds, Grace and Collin walking hand in hand….while their goofball brothers wrestle!!


On Friday, we joined the Weissers at the Brandywine Zoo.


There’s a tiger in there!


After saying goodbye to the Weissers, we headed to Annapolis, where we stayed overnight with the Greenes!  We had lots of fun playing outside before our cookout.


I’m so glad I captured this pic of Liam trying to blow a bubble!


Four little monkeys sleeping in a bed….Seamus, Simon, Grace and Jude on their “camp-out!”  They had so much fun!


Thank you, Greene family for letting us stay overnight!  We were all so excited for our trip to the Baltimore Aquarium on Saturday.  The kids loved the park on the walk to the entrance.  Simon showed us the cool instruments.


Waiting for the dolphins…I was just cracking up at my littlest man hanging out with his hands in his pockets!




We took a break from the aquarium for a little POLP meet up with the Swartleys, Raabs and Wilets for lunch!  The kiddos were so excited to see each other!


After our fun day in Baltimore, we headed to my Aunt Maureen’s house in New Jersey.  We love going there and visiting the beach and the Ocean City boardwalk.  Sadly, this was our first visit without our Uncle Jon, who passed away last August.  It was not the same without him!

Enjoying a beautiful beach day!


The beach wore everyone out, but after a nice rest and dinner, we were ready for the boardwalk.  Ready to ride the rides!


It was a wonderful visit!  We had two nights with Aunt Maureen and our cousins Andrea, Tom, Brittany and Andrew before we headed back home.

Liam giving some love to Aunt Maureen!  Thank you for having us!


It was a very busy and fun five days!  Liam was wonderful all those hours in the car – about 15 total after all of our journeys!  However, the rest of the time….his behavior left much to be desired, lol!  We had a great mini-vacation and we’re glad to be home safely.  Hope you all enjoyed your weekend as well!

Looks like a wonderful memorial day weekend! It must have been so nice to catch up with all your POLP friends and to see everybody.

Liam with his hands in his pocket is the cutest thing ever!
