Food and Wine

It's Thursday night.  We finally got the house organized enough for the cleaning lady to come in the morning.  We need her to come everyday so we are forced to keep everything in it's place.  Color War started today at Aden's camp.  I refuse to say Color Games.  Hopefully he's on the winning team!

Last Saturday night, Amy and I went to the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival at the Claridge.  We had no idea what to expect.  It was a pretty wild scene.  There were several floors of chefs making bite sized meals and liquor vendors giving out shots of different liquors.  
Many of the chefs were contestants from Hell's Kitchen so this felt like one of their challenges.  The food was good but so random.  We would eat a taco, a cupcake, some salsa, wine, crabcake, rice krispie treat, soup, you get the idea.  I think there was some bourbon in there too.
This guy is a White House chef!  He was also a character.

It was a fun night!
Sunday morning at 6:00, I got all four kids up, fed and dressed by myself.  I'm Super Dad!  We had the annual walk in honor of my uncle on the boardwalk in Atlantic City.
 Genny was so excited to feed the boys.

 Remy's mom.

 There were 5k and 1 mile runs before our 1 mile walk.

 Ariel was mostly in the stroller but Aden walked the whole way.  So proud of him.
 I guess it took 18 minutes.
 Rest before the big 50 yard dash.

Aden was so serious but Ariel was all smiles.
We had a fun morning.

 Back home by 10:30 and Amy was still asleep!  
 Aden and I went for a ride with Amy's dad on the WaveRunner.

 Steve was out with friends.
 So were Marc and Chad.

We zoomed all around the bay.
 Then it was to my parent's to swim.

 Hey Vicki!

 We stayed over Sunday night so after dinner we hit the Dairy Bar.
 There was a magician!  Have a great weekend everyone!

Party on the Beach

It's after midnight and I'm just starting this.  I hope somebody out there appreciates it!  

First time trying real food!  Noah did better than Eli.
Friday night, we had dinner with Joseph and family before heading to the shore.
Saturday morning.
Noah and his buddy Nate.  Ali and Todd came down for the day and Lindsay and Chad were still there from last week.  Also Todd's brother joined us.
Somehow we got everyone to the beach.
And set up quite a camp.
 Hey Ali and Linds!
 Todd and Sammy.
 Todd and Sammy and Todd's brother and his kids.
 Jax going for a ride on daddy.
 I don't have many pics of my kids but there is Ariel with Sammy.
 Lindsay, Chad and her parents.
 There's Aden.
 Jax wanted to do what Aden did.
 The water was really warm.  All the kids besides mine enjoyed it!

 The Brombergs.
 Cool tent.
 We had a feast on the beach.
 Ariel was almost buried.  
 Lots of help with feedings.

 We made it to the pool for a bit.

 We had such a great day with everyone!
