Pictures to prove we've moved in - stuff on the walls is always an indicator of being settled. Benjamin's room:
The man, the myth, the legend:
Family dinner at Mimi and Pop-pop's house; Benjamin and his cousin Lauren.

Ahoy there shipmates! We took a tour of the USS CONSTITUTION this weekend in Boston with Greg's (Dad's) War College Class... there's the landlubbers now!

Impressed in to the Continental Navy is Gun Captain # 1:
and on Gun # 2 is Captain Burp Cloth and his Fist Mate...
Request permission to go ashore, sir!
We cruised around Newport last week and captured some photos of the breathtaking sunset:
St. George's in the distance (place where Mom and Dad got married - where the magic started)

Shots... take two!

As you can see from the picture, both Mom and Benjamin fared much better during our second time at the immunization table. Yes, there was crying and yes, there were little tears and big tears, but all-in-all we recovered much quicker this time. Chalk it up to experience, thicker leg fat, and/or just plain toughness - Shot Ninjas 1; Benjamin 1.

Okay, all right already... we know it's been a while, but we hope to quench those toddler tastebuds with this opening picture. Of note, Benjamin starting to eat solid food (i.e. mushy oatmeal; nothing too solid about it actually). LOOK AT THAT FACE!

Auntie Alana rolls up her sleeves. "Auntie, you really know the way to a man"s heart is through his stomach!"

"Mom, when do I start eating steak? Medium rare please"

"I ate too much mushy oatmeal!" - Fat guy in a little chair

"Time to work it off in the Jumper"

"Now it's time to relax on the beach"
"I am more of a second beach guy. You can see the church where Mom and Dad got married" - Saint George's in the distance.
We celebrated Alicia's 21st birthday... again. Of course! At the Atlantic Beach Club, in style.
All the cousins were there to help celebrate and eat cake!
Ladies, ladies, ladies!
The 'dudes' in between meals (Benjamin's meal - then Dad's meal)
Too much partying! (One of the very few instances you'll see Benjamin snuggled up to Mom in Mom's bed)

Of course we can't sleep too long without food. It helps when you have a long line of enthusiastic volunteers. Baby-sitter in training, Cousin Jordan at the bottle.

Dad and his buddy at church. God is great!
A 24 hour Grandma pit stop. Grandma needed her Benjamin fix. More like Benjamin needed his Grandma fix; Grandma's little buddy!
