This past weekend was awesome. I got to spend some solid quality time my family. Mom, Dad, Par, Meg, Kelly and Molly were all around and it was so nice to get to just hang out and laugh all weekend. I also got to see my two best girlies, Mary and Heather which is always a joy! My brother Patrick wasn’t able to come home (he’s über cool – lives out in Cali) which was sad. It’s weird when a bunch of us are together and there’s one or two missing. I got to chat with him on Saturday though, so it was nice to catch up. I miss you brothaman!
We did a lot over the weekend – a bbq Saturday at our (pretend) cousins house where we got to see all the kiddies – such a treat! Did a little shopping for Meg’s honeymoon Saturday night, had tea with Mary and Heather, went out to Bellport to visit Fr. Jerry, saw SATC2 (awesome!), made the seating arrangements for the wedding, saw Kelly’s Brian who is home from Ireland (he was did a semester over there), went to the Babylon Memorial Day parade, another bbq at our other cousins, etc. etc. The weather was beautiful and I was surrounded by people I love. A wonderful weekend indeed.

Once we got home to Babylon, it was time to head over to our pretend cousins (do you guys have any of those??) house for a bbq. It was such a good time!
Sunday we drove out to Bellport to visit our dear friend Fr. Jerry (Mom and Dad have been friends with him since we were little – he even baptized Molly, or ‘Angelina’ as he calls her… He’s one of those ‘Italians’…) We went to mass at his parish, Mary Immaculate and afterward we went to brunch in town. Fr. Jerry will be celebrating mass along with Fr. Jim at Meg and Matt’s wedding so it was good to talk some wedding details with him and get to see him before the big show!

Meg also had her final fitting while we were home! She looks AMAZING in her dress – I can’t post any pictures because Matt can’t see it yet! However, here is a picture of my gorgeous Mother all dolled up. Meg was practicing my Mom’s makeup for the big day.
