Another Kernan Party

Here’s a long post from our visit to NJ where we stayed with Mommy’s Uncle Mike for a party at his camp for Bridget and Will’s graduation and Katie’s entrance into high school.  Thanks so much for the hospitality, we felt perfectly at home and had a great time as usual.  One of the best compliments we could ever get was said many times over the weekend – “you two certainly make beautiful kids.”

Our arrival – Uncle Mike’s driveway is bigger than our entire yard!

Before the party, Bradley and Katie put the finishing touches on Aunt Sharon’s cool video of their kids’ lives.

Uncle Mike got Deric to smile a lot – I guess after five kids he knows a few tricks.

Bradley had to take Mike to school on their Wii soccer game – why isn’t Bradley’s controller plugged in????

Bridget and Will joined the party to cheer Bradley on – he didn’t even have to watch the screen.
