While Patrick was at his bachelor weekend with friends down in Miami, Heather, Julie and I headed to Lee, Massachusetts for a shower given by Chrissy's mom and aunts.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JULIE!

April 18...a great day in history. Paul Revere's ride may have been two hundred and thirty three years ago, but it was 30 years ago that Julie was born. We were thrilled with our first child.

I LOVE GETTING READY FOR WEDDINGS!

Patrick and Chrissy's impending wedding is bringing families together and we are having a blast.

Last night we attended a party at Winged Foot Golf Club that was given by Barbara and Frank Fee and Joe and Kathy (number 1) McCurdy. Marty McCurdy Moran (in Eugene, Oregon) was in "attendence" through the flowers she contributed for the family affair. Everyone was thrilled to share in Chrissy and Pat's happiness.

Joe dispensed some sage advice: 1. Don't get into a wrestling match with someone stronger than you and 2. Don't come home wearing a leprechaun costume.

Kathy was creative and wrote a poem.

But it was Barbara's toast of Patrick's lifetime of smiles that touched us all.
