Daddy’s Day

The Sheriff had a great weekend celebrating her daddy!  Ace and Joker kicked it off with a Sheriff-less trip to Fenway to watch the Sox beat up on the Brewers with their favorite Polish-Irish duo.  Ace brought the Smirnoff Ice out of retirement that evening — it had been a while since she had one of her favorite summer cocktails since she was pregnant with the Sheriff last summer!   Thanks to Aunt K for watching the Sheriff!

Saturday morning, the A Team headed out to breakfast at Friendly Toast (yum), followed by the Sheriff’s first trip to Newport (fun).  The Sheriff slept through the annual pilgrimage to Bardini 2009 — the Eisenhower House — and enjoyed her first trip to the Barking Crab, Newport.  (She has already been to the Barking Crab, Boston for Mother’s Day dinner with Ace, Joker and Babci where she met her first 8 pound lobster!).

Father’s day was special.  The Sheriff had a nice Italian lunch in Ace’s old hood with her great grandparents, Dziadz, Joker and Ace.  Great Grandpa got his favorite veal parm and smiled the day away just looking at the little Sheriff.  And in the evening the Sheriff got to show off her new tricks (rolling over!) for Grandpa and Babs, followed by a splendid trip to Sullivan’s at Castle Island for some tasty fried food and ice cream!

The Sunny Days of Summer

The Sheriff has been having a great first summer! With the weather warming up and the sun shining lots, Ace and the Sheriff have been getting out for long walks and play dates all the time. The Sheriff’s favorite place is Castle Island and she and her friend C-Man love to have lunch on the benches overlooking the water down there.  It’s a nice life!   And Ace loves hanging out with C-Man’s Mommy — lots to talk about as they experience motherhood together.  The Sheriff and C-Man are pictured below on one of their many fun dates.  The Sheriff also loves her early evening walks with Ace and LaLa to Castle Island. The Sheriff is wondering if she will inherit their gift of gab — nothing beats old friends!

In an effort to protect the little Sheriff from the evil sun, Ace has purchased virtually every car seat cover currently available on the market and then some. Pictured below is the most stylish selection which Ace had made to match the eggplant/purple motif of the Sheriff’s Stokke stroller.

Speaking of the stroller, not a walk goes by where people don’t comment about its unique frame. A shout out is in order to Joker’s boss for recommending it (great for the tall types), and to Dziadz for underwriting it!
