Adventures in babysitting, NJ edition

Yesterday, we drove 4 hours to Lakewood, NJ. We then spent 4 hours in Lakewood, NJ. After that, we turned around, and drove 4 hours home. This doesn't sound very pleasant (or sane), does it? And yet, to get 4 hours to see The Twins (and Elana and Shmuel), it was more than worth it. Throw in Ben's happiness at getting a kosher dinner out of the deal, and it was a superb evening.

We hadn't seen the twins in 3 months, and boy have they gotten big. As you'll see from the photos, they are getting to be real people! We were slightly limited in what we could do with them, as the park we were going to walk around with closed 2 minutes before we got there, and we were lacking a home base other than Elana's minivan, but we made the most of it, and all had a great time.

The best part is, we're going to see everyone again in 2 weeks when we all celebrate Grandpa Irv's 90th birthday!

And now, the photos, that you knew were coming!

    Thanks so much for the pix, Ben. I sure do miss those babybugs! Any chance you can do a video from the cribcam??

  2. I know, we sure miss them too!

    You should definitely skype Elana and have her put her laptop in the crib to make the adhoc crib cam. Though, I'm ready for her to install one full time ;-)

    Hi Ben,
    I'm trying to get these pix to my mom, (blogs are blocked from her county school internet account) but can't seem to grab from the slideshow since they move so fast!
    Any ideas?
