Wrapping up with our CT visit, there were a few amazing meals and some fun ‘other’ activities.
One evening the kids put together a Candy Land for the adults. We all got tickets and a quarter to spend on the games (that they made up). It was very creative
Aunt Elaine was kind enough (and brave enough) to babysit all 3 kids one night, so Joe & I could go out to Portuguese food with Jenn & Jacques.
So much shrimp! I was in heaven!!!
(when the kids were getting along, they had a good time but there were definitely some “Three is a crowd” moments.)
Anyone heard of ‘Magic Jinn’? Well, thanks to Aunt Elaine & Yvette – we came home with not 1 but 2 Magic Jinns. Now we can play guessing games in stereo (‘very interesting!’)
On our last day in CT, it rained a ton…I think it rained for at least 6-7 hours straight! That is pretty crazy for us San Diegans.
I let the kids go out and play in the water and jump in the puddles. They were soaked within 3 minutes.
That night, Aunt Elaine volunteered to watch the boys (again!). After dinner, she and the boys walked to 7-11…for Slurpee #2. (Yes, in the evening!! Eek!)
Uncle Warren & Aunt Yvette treated us to a FABULOUS Fish/Lobster dinner. So, so good!! Complete with oyster appetizers….Joe’s heaven.
Lobster ‘Larry’…didn’t stand a chance again Joe LaGreca.
As if dinner wasn’t enough to fill us up beyond belief, we went to ‘buy 1 get 1 free’ night for Ice Cream sundaes.
One last stop that night. We met Jesse at The Corner Pug — a place that always reminds me of my cousin Warren. He took is here 9 years ago when we we came out with the girls and my Dad. That trip is memorable for ALL of us. It was the last time we (all cousins/aunts/uncles) were together. We had a ‘Cousins Only Outing’ that we will all treasure in our hearts (and thankfully, we have a few pictures from that night to remind us of the fun time and great meal).
Being back in CT was great but in was also so strange & sad. It’s hard to be there and have so many memories with Little Warren — and he isn’t there 😢 He will never be forgotten.
All our CT Fam — thank you for a fabulous vacation. It was great to spend so much time with everyone. Now…it’s time for YOU guys to visit us in San Diego ☀️
