Our dear friend Mary took us on a wild and crazy adventure to the Jerz Jump! And boy did we jump!!
It took all of about 6 seconds for Deysi to warm up to this world of inflatables...
I love this great shot Mary took--going in for a lay-up on the moon walk
We drank a lot of water (this jumping is no joke!) and had to practically beg her to go have a snack
Can you tell we loved this?!
After 3.5 hours (!!) we were pooped!
On Sunday, after crazy car shuffling to get back and forth to 3 different Masses with three different people, we had a lovely lunch with Aunt Anne and Uncle Randy (my mom's sister--and my godmother, I might add--and her husband). Uncle Randy served up a delicious tomato soup and we had a wonderful time!
Discussions... (Mom, Aunt Anne and Beth)
...and now the posed shot...(yeah, ya think these three are related to each other?!)
"You guys just keep chatting...I'll shell a few more peanuts..."
The whole gang
And then from Summit we made our way over to Chatham (without the other 3 Kupins who had to head home) to visit our dear friends who have been family ever since they moved onto Erdman Ave. oh so long ago, the Forness clan. I realized I almost never have any pictures of our visits because I spend so much time chatting away that I forget to take my camera out! I did manage to get one, though...
Three serious hockey fans contemplating the Devils impending win :)
For a few glorious seconds after my bad attempt to explain this crazy game, Deysi thought that Brian was the hockey goalie she was seeing playing for the Devils...I wouldn't be surprised, someday, Bri... :)
The girls, of course, didn't make it into the picture because we were gabbing away in the kitchen. :)
And look what we saw when we woke up this morning!!! It had turned into rain halfway between Chatham and Princeton, but did she ever get a kick out of it while it lasted!!
We leave for Boston tomorrow morning and our appointment with the surgeon at Shriner's is on Wednesday at 11am. We're hoping for some more concrete info regarding exactly what the surgery is going to involve and how long they think the recovery time might be. We are so grateful to have had this time to see and experience so many wonderful things and we've set ourselves up for a lot of really great stuff once we get back to NJ post-op. Having things to look forward to helps a lot! Please keep us in your prayers as we start this next leg of our journey--there's a part of me that would love to bypass the surgery and all that goes with it, but God's got this in His hands and we're just going to try to take things a day at a time. He's taken us this far and will see us through to the other side.
