On Sunday downtown Westfield closes the streets to traffic for Spring Fling! The streets were filled with merchants and food vendors (Don recognized a couple of them from Rutgers Day). There were lots of activities for the kids, music, and lots of people. It was another hot day in NJ but we enjoyed getting out and about. We walked there from our house — it\’s about a 1 mile walk.
Here\’s Quinn checking out the ponies.
I\’ve been told by some of the Westfield mom\’s that the Westfield public pool is fantastic. The kiddie area has fountains, slides, and a couple of pools. Sounds right up our alley. The catch is that if you are a new member, you have to sign up in person at the recreation office starting at 8 am this morning. We were warned that you need to be there early so Don got there at 1:30 am and was about 70th in line. When I got there around 7:30 am with Quinn there were probably 1000 people in line. The pool has 9400 memberships and about 500 were available this year. So, unless you were there by about 3 or 4 am, you were out of luck. The first people showed up at 10 am and camped out in a tent. Don just happened to be sitting 2 people away from one of my friends. We are looking forward to a fun summer at the pool!!!
We have a great affection for orange in this household so I couldn\’t pass up a pair of orange shorts for Quinn at the outlet store. We continued our great day at the neighborhood playground and got some shots of Quinn sporting his orange shorts.
Today we had our first really beautiful day in NJ with temperatures in the low 70\’s. So we made the best of it and headed outside. I had some hostas to transplant that I had dug up from mom\’s house. Quinn was having a great time playing in the dirt and using the shovel. He even pulled up a couple of the hostas that I had just planted. It was all fun!
Here I am spying on Quinn and Darwin from behind the cherry tree.
No day would be complete without eating a little dirt. Quinn also has a little boo-boo on his chin from scratching it in the garage yesterday.
And look at this fantastic bed head 😉
Jazz is the neighborhood cat at Grams house. He was hanging around the garage so we thought we would give Quinn his first up close and personal encounter with a cat. He thought Jazzy was pretty great.
On Easter we all went out to brunch. We let Quinn loose on the chocolate fountain lol. Not really, but he enjoyed the chocolate covered strawberries.
While in Maryland over Easter weekend, we had lunch with Tim & Stacey. For all those inquiring family members, here are some shots of Quinn and our future daughter-in-law Sullivan. However, Don is a little worried because Sullivan kept referring to Quinn as her little brother. Next it will be \”I just want to be friends\”.
