Israel's 80th Birthday Celebration

For Israel's 80th birthday we planned a special weekend in Mystic, CT. We all met at the Engine Room for lunch. Then we went swimming at our hotel. Then we all had a fabulous dinner at Bobby Flay's Bar Americain. The food was amazing! It was the highlight of the trip for me. Afterwards we went to see Dancing with the Stars: Live! - Dance All Night Tour at the Mohegan Sun Arena. The show was good, though it was a bit long for me, considering I never watched Dancing with the Stars. The next day we had breakfast at Kitchen Little at The Mystic River Marina and went to the Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration. Afterwards we had lunch at Mystic Pizza before heading home. It was a great weekend and Israel had a great time.

Turkey Run 2015

We all ran in the 3.2 mile Turkey Run. I didn't even try to keep up with Eason, who finished at about 26:00. Instead I ran with Andrea, who finished in 41:00. (These are the times we calculated from when we crossed the starting position. The official times are below.) were both significant improvements over our last run.

Last Thanksgiving

For Thanksgiving this year the kids and Aviva put together an apple-themed menu. Babcia fried 92 latkes, and they went like hot cakes ...or latkes and cranberry sauce. Aviva slow cooked the turkey, and everything was delicious! After hosting our family for Thanksgiving for 14 years, this is our last.

Halloween 2015

Post Family2 This Halloween we went to our friend's house for a pre-Trick or Treating party. Andrea dressed up as Hermione Granger from Harry Potter. Eason dressed up as Donald Trump. That left me with the dilemma of dressing up as either Lord Voldemort or Bernie Sanders, and since Eason was going Trick or Treating with his friends, I went for the former, with the best last minute preparations I could muster. Aviva, also at the last minute, put on her best witchy custom. It was a-ghast!

Apple Picking 2015

We went apple picking at Barton Orchards again with our friends. We went to the haunted house, played in the amusement park, went through the corn maze, and picked lots of of apples and a few pumpkins.

Bye, Bye Bungalow 2015

We finished our yearly ritual of packing up the bungalow for the winter. We would have kept coming up more, but the kid's soccer schedules are taking over all our weekends. So after Aviva and Andrea kayaked, while Eason and I canoed around the lake, and we found the lake monster for the first time this summer, and we took a ride around in the tractor, we said goodbye to the kayaks, canoe, row boat, picnic table, rope ladder, swings, tetherball, and hammock...until next year.

Rosh Hashanah At The Bungalow 2015

We had Rosh Hashanah dinner with our family at the bungalow. We also celebrated Babcia's 47th anniversary in America (by eating all the food Babcia made for us). After easting we had fun doing the usual bungalow things...after we stopped for a photo shoot that is.

Labor Day Weekend, Push-Ups And More

We did our usual Labor Day weekend activities of running, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, eating, and a good amount of laying (and floating) around, plus, of course, or Labor Day push-up contest. The contest is supposed to be 500 push-ups in an hour.

Summer 2015 With The Maldonados

We spent some time with the Maldonado family, like we do every year. It is always fun. Luis improved his boat and now his boat is very powerful. We all tried to water ski, like Jack and Riley do, but while some of us did better than others, none of us came close. As always, it was a great weekend.

On our last day in Maine before leaving, we decided to hike round the Gorham Mountain Trail along the eastern coast of Mount Desert Island, overlooking the ocean.
