October 2017

Grandparents Day at Joey’s school.  He was so lucky have have 4 grandparents & 1 great grandparent able to attend!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Joey made a Tzedakah box and learned all about the meaning of giving to those less fortunate.  Since that time, he’s been soliciting donations from his family members in the hopes of donating a full box to the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation.  He even asked the valet at Bubbie & Zayde’s condo!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We got last minute tickets to the Cubs play off game so I pulled Joey out of school and took him on a special date!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He had an absolute blast

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hey neighbor!

Spring Break 2017

We had another fantastic Spring Break trip to Scottsdale.  This year, Bubbie & Zeyde rented a house so we were able to spend some time with them too!

The kids were great on the plane.  They all had their iPads and stayed fairly entertained the entire ride.  We still wouldn’t consider a much longer flight quite yet – this was about their max!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spending some time with Bubbie & Zeyde after being separated for a month!
