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!

Benji’s 4th Bday

Benji was psyched to turn 4 (because we mistakenly told him that he could stop napping once he did).
Grandma and Grandpa came in to celebrate a week early.  We went to Quartino for dinner (it was way too loud for GG so we ended up crashing Aunt Cari’s house for dessert).

Donut cake

Benji got a Viewmaster and ended up loving it so much he chose to bring it in to school for his “show and tell” day.

On the day of his birthday, Nanny and Poppy came over for a special french toast breakfast (the kids are on break).  After that, we headed to Northbrook Court for lunch with Great Grandma Poo Poo…







…and then visited Great Grandpa Morrie at his office. Joey had a great time playing, “which one is bigger?” and showing off his math skills…













The Suarai joined us for pizza and cupcakes









Birthday Shabbos

Thanksgiving 2016

Finally a Thanksgiving we were able to attend as planned (we’ve been sick the last 2/3 years).  We had Thanksgiving dinner at The Goodmans house (Carrie is such a good cook!) and then headed to the lake for dessert.







The boys had such a great time playing with their “boy cousins”















The kids loved exploring the lake in the Winter.

We headed back early from the lake to celebrate Poppy again!
