Busy Sunday

Yesterday was Terry's birthday. We celebrated by taking a nice, long ride into New Jersey to take part in a surprise anniversary party for my sister and her husband. Ruthann and Al were wed some 40 years ago April 26th.

It was a long day!

We left the Aerie around 10 AM, stopped at a Perkins in Buckhorn for brunch, and arrived at my nieces house in Pompton Lakes at 2:45. The party was scheduled for 3 PM.

Ruthann and Al arrived on time and were properly surprised. We enjoyed seeing everyone especially the four little girls (age 2 to almost 5) two of whom are Ruthann's and Al's grandchildren.

The SILs manned the grill and produced a nice barbecue meal including the normal hot dogs and hamburgers as well as some sausage and peppers, kielbasi, and a chicken shishkebab, we also had some cake and ice cream.

The Cake

Sis and her hubby opened their presents (with some help) before we hit the road for home at 6 PM.

Four hours later we pulled into the driveway at 10 PM--a full 12 hours after we left.
