Who wants pictures?

We've got them, lots and lots of them.

We wouldn't want you to think that even as Gabe's menu expands a little bit that he's forsaken his favorite food.

Sometimes even Cheerios can't keep the boy awake

We wanted to get Gabe started on his road to being a rocket scientist early in life, so we got him rockets!

He helped us set up

He's so proud of his rocket!

He found the rocket after we launched it

Of course, there's no pressure:

If the rocket scientist thing doesn't work out, he could be a chef

We've already mentioned the fantastic time we had at the reception in Maumee. It wasn't all fun and games, though. Things got scary:

Avoiding the ghosts we ran afoul of... mannequins

... and toilets! AHHHHHHHH!!!

(We'd like to emphasize that these were taken up on the third floor and were in no way near the actual reception. We're pretty sure the bathrooms on the first floor were better, but do you think we were crazy enough to go in and check??)

Maybe even scarier than the haunted inn was the weather. The only one that liked it was Gabe.

Gabe really likes the snow... in his galoshes

Wait, did someone say galoshes??

It's almost spring... in some places... so it's time for galoshes

He liked the snow so much he didn't want to come inside

We've probably overloaded your internet enough for one night. We hope you enjoy the pictures!

Perfect Reception

Mom and Nick (aka "Bunnut" and "Papa Nit") put on a beautiful, meaningful, and joyful reception. Looking around the room at Gianno's, it was obvious how loving and loved they are. The room was full of smiling, social people, and the whole atmosphere reflected them perfectly both as individuals and as a couple.

We had the greatest weekend. Besides the reception, which was the reason we went up there, we got to have dinner with the Wolfgangs (aka "Wolfgangs") and Laura (aka "Wo-wo") at Pizza House. We had a total blast. We were lucky enough to be "stuck" in Maumee when the weather turned ugly on Sunday morning, so we got to stay for an extra day.

I have to say an extra huge thank-you to Mom A for the coffee you made me every day. It tasted really good and made such a difference in my mornings. Thank you!!!

Most of our photos are on film, but here are a couple that we took of G and Zozie with the digital camera. We got Chip some buggy garden galoshes so he could use them at home where we don't really have snow. His snowsuit from last year was a size 2T, so it still fit! Woohoo! Oh yeah, those are jeans in the photo, because it was a last-minute, last-night-in-town foray into the snow. He loved the snow, that's for sure.

When we got home, Chip had a little steam to blow off from almost 11 hours in the car:
