Joe and Jen's Wedding

We drove through the night on Saturday and slept for a few hours in Westport before meeting Stacey and Nick in Stamford for a drive tto be with friends in Long Island for Joe and Jen's wedding. It was yet another reunion for us, this time with Karen's high school friends, some who we hadn't seen in years. A great way to end the weekend.

Melissa & Brian's Wedding

On Saturday, we drove from Danbury up to the White Mountains of New Hampshire to see Melissa and Brian get married at the Mountain View Grand. It was a gorgeous event and wonderful to see Karen's college friends all dressed up again :)

John and Amanda's Wedding

To start off our weekend of weddings, we went to Danbury to John and Amanda's wedding. Karen grew up next door to John and it was a reunion of family and friends. It was a wonderful way to start the weekend.

Who's Having the Grilled Cheese?

On Sunday, Brian, Tami, and Karen had the great honor to have lunch with Karen's Gram Ruth at the Town and Country Diner in Toms River, New Jersey. We were all charmed by her wit, dazzled by her evervescent youth, and treated to a delicious meal. If only she would have let Karen eat more than a grilled cheese (wink wink), it would have been a perfect day!

Seriously, Gram, it was so great to see you and I hope you come to visit us very soon. I promise I'll eat a full meal - and we'll treat. We love you!

Betsy's Wedding

This weekend we went to the wedding of Karen's lifelong friend. Betsy, a Danbury native, married her fellow Bucknell alum Bryan Parmley in Stone Harbor, New Jersey. We had a blast and spent quality time with Tami and Teri and Teri's husband, Jason. Betsy and Bryan are off on a Mediterranean cruise for their honeymoon and will make their home in upstate New York upon their return. Congratulations and thanks to the whole Hueser family for a fabulous party!

New Jersey State of Mind

We got the chance to stay in the "Reich" Suite this weekend at the most fabulous bed and breakfast on the east coast - better known as the Kraft House in Upper Saddle River, New Jersey. Jen and Matt made us a wonderful barbeque seafood dinner. We also got to play in the famous game room - where Brian reigned over both Matt AND Karen in air hockey and ping pong (given the Mariners' season, can you blame them for letting him win??!). Here is a picture of the cutest little man in town - and one with his daddy - now known to us as Gus Senior. We can't wait for our next visit!
