AIDS Walk 2010 (Better Late Than Never!)

Our family participated in AIDS Walk NY again this year. Friends and families joined us - making it a FABULOUS time!

The start of the walk in Central Park...
Katie, KC, Allison, Madison, & Simon

Ava (being shy) & Keri

A wonderful day for a stroll through Central Park!
For all of you Beatles Fans out there (Dad)...

Simon, Allison, Katie, Madison, Emma, & KC sitting by the Strawberry Fields plaque.

Of course - the kids only know the Beatles and John Lennon from Rock Band, but they all loved this memorial to John Lennon.

Next was the American Museum of Natural History.

After the museum, we all enjoyed the beauty of Central Park.

Allison & Simon on one of the jogging paths.

Of course - rock climbing by the Great Lawn.

Then it was off to the Central Park Zoo for a private, awesome party!

We cannot wait until next year! We would love for you all to join us!

Cousin Joey

We loved seeing everyone! We miss you all and can't wait until we see you again!

Everyone was prepared for Earl to do major damage to the shore.

Well, Earl came.
(A few of my storm chasers got right to work.)

And Earl left.
There was actually very little rain. Although the skies were gray and the winds were strong. Cape May beaches were closed for 2 days, but the water was crazy warm!

No swimming for 2 days - but loads of surfing!
(A treat for East Coast beaches!)

And just like that - summer was over!

School started and now we have a 7th grader, a 5th grader, a 2nd grader, and the Goo.
