A special day for another Classmate

I wanted to share this very happy occasion. Kristy, my daughter and Al were married in a beautiful evening ceremony on July 23 2010 at the Riverview in Simsbury. It was a small gathering of close friends and family. My husband and I happily welcomed Al into our family and are eagerly waiting for more grandchildren!!!!!

Two classmates celebrating a milestone in Italy

Pasitano and the Amalfi Coast
In 2005, Sue D and I (Candy B) decided to celebrate our birthdays by going on an adventure. We chose Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon for our first trip. We had such a great time we decided to make it a tradition -- every 5 years to mark our milestone birthdays, we'd go somewhere we'd never been. This year it was Italy. We spent a week in Rome and a week in Sorrento on the Amalfi Coast. It was absolutely amazing - history around every corner in Rome, and paradise in Sorrento. Now we have to figure out how to top this in 2015

A very happy day for all. We had a beautiful day that was shared with a little over 100 guests. All the planning was well worth it and the weather could not have been better. A wonderful time for everyone.

South Florida Fun .... Dodging the BP Bullet

The Florida Keys ... fresh air, beautiful breezes, sunny and warm - if only it'll continue that way.   Head south for salt water fishing, boating, paragliding, snorkeling, kayaking, sunset cruises and some of the absolute best seafood on the east coast.

Water-view of the schooner.  Crystal clear diving on the reef.  And no, we didn't see JAWS...

Madame "Head Concierge" for the DoubleTree in Key West, Debbie B. was again a fabulous hostess, a fount of Keysie knowledge, trip arranger extraordinaire, and just plain fun to hang with.  Call Deb and she'll make your vacation planning to Key West effortless...

Cat, Deb and Steve enjoy a laugh at the Tiki Hut.  The DoubleTree Tiki Hut bartender was from Connecticut too!  Small world! 

Cat snags the first of her "baby" bass at Lake Okeechobee. 

Steve got the "Big One" ... check out how calm Lake Okeechobee's water is...can you believe we ran out of bait?    Talk about active fishing ... and it was in the high 90's.
And a trip to Florida would not be complete without a trip or two to the baseball park to see the Marlins play. Next time we're headed to St. Pete to see the Rays play in airconditioned comfort.

I never thought I'd become a grandmother but I now have 2 beautiful granddaughters by my daughter Tara. Brynn was born Dec 2007 and is named after my son Bryan who passed away from Leukemia on December 24th 2005. She looks like Bryan and even knows Bryan when she sees his picture. She calls him Bubba, (a name only his friends use to call him) so we were surprised she knew that name at all. Camryn was born November 2009 and is the complete opposite of Brynn, petite with the longest fingers. Our Piano player. I have started babysitting for both of them. HELP!!!! I may be 60 years old and not the chick I was 30 or 40 years ago but I am looking forward to this new adventure. Anyone else out there have grandchildren? Would love to see pictures and here all about them.
Best Regards, Marcia Sharasheff Ahern
