Jack is 9!


I wish time slowed down a little. 
As I am trying to savor these precious moments of our kids wanting our company, wanting us to watch their sports, and their activities, or sharing their experiences with us, I realize how quickly time passes...

Jack turns 9 today and he is still the sweetest, kindest boy.
His obsession with sports continues with football being his favorite! He played another season of football on the Randolph Bulldogs and had his first catch in a game against another town. 
He went to his first NFL game (NY Giants vs. Chicago Bears) and loved the experience so much we were back at the stadium for another game - NY Jets vs Chicago Bears this time (Chi Bears is Steve's favorite team, Go Bears!!).
Jack also enjoys baseball and even got a few tips from one of our neighbors - Wilmer Difo who used to play for the Washington Nationals. He also went to his first Yankees game!
And let's not forget about basketball which he just started to play :) but has been practicing shooting hoops outside and around the house for weeks!

Outside of sports, Jack still enjoys playing piano which, by the way, was his idea from the start, and we get to enjoy his "private" home concerts very much ;) 
A math wiz, solving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division equations the fastest in his class!  (proud mama). And an avid chess player - working on winning against Steve :)

Happy Birthday, Jack! 
Words cannot express how much we love and adore you! 

Here are a few favorite moments from this past year...

Laura + Adam • Bear Brook Valley Wedding


Laura & Adam waited a few extra months to finally have their wedding!
They tied the knot in an intimate beach ceremony in the fall of 2020 and planned to celebrate big the following year.
And what a celebration it was!!
From all the gorgeous details, florals, and "Laura & Adam Fun Fact" napkins, to the epic sunset skies and sweeping views of Bear Brook Valley grounds, the day could not have been more perfect!
And the night would not have been complete without an awesome glow stick party!!

Congratulations, Laura & Adam! 
And Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary!!
