A day in New Jersey with Jeff's Family

Saturday, July 15, 2017

Summer is in full swing, which means we have been busy! Last week some of Jeff's family came for a visit. We had Anne and kids at our house on Wednesday night and then Sharon, Gerrie, Emilie and baby Sam at our place Thursday through Sunday. It was a bit crazy, but so nice spending time with them. Cohen LOVED playing with all his cousins.

Last Friday everyone gathered in New Jersey for an internment for Jeff's brother Jon who died last September. It was a quick little ceremony where Gerrie shared a few words. It was nice to be there with family and some close family friends.

We then headed to Kanji for a family lunch. It was the first time all the kids had done hibachi, so it was quite an experience. Cohen LOVED it! He's totally a steak boy, so he was in heaven. He also had sushi for the first time and surprisingly liked that as well. Of course, we had to finish the meal with a little fried ice cream. Cohen is totally a Neu....he could eat ice cream all day every day.

We then drove a few miles south to Ocean Grove. This is a city on the Jersey shore that Clara (my mother in law) use to frequent as a child. We went to Days Ice Cream for a second helping of ice cream (Clara use to come to this same ice cream place when she was a child) cause everyone needs two helpings of ice cream. Maybe it's because we have been in the City for a while, but I was shop at how inexpensive Days Ice Cream is! If you ever go to Ocean Grove, totally stop by!

It was a lovely day. It was so nice to spend such quality time with Jeff's family. They really are such lovely people and I feel so blessed to be part of their family. We ended up in New Jersey the next day as well for a little BBQ at Bob and Noramah's. I can't wait to see everyone again next month.
