Happy 4th Birthday Tyler!!

Ty turned 4 today!! He was so happy, he kept saying that he is 4 today!! All in all it was a pretty good day. He went to school and told everyone about CT and all the Lobster that he ate!

Ryan got Tyler more Star Wars legos...I am not sure who was happier.. Ryan or Tyler!
Tyler wanted to play baseball, like the Yankees!! So we had a mini batting practice in our backyard. Ty did pretty good!

Lobster DAY!!!!

We made it back home safe from CT!! And I do not even know where to begin, I have so many pics... I'll start with a little bit of lobster day first! For those of you that are non-Meehan....Lobster Day has evolved into an annual family reunion to celebrate my Grandfather's birthday. I believe it was my cousin Kathryn that coined the phrase "National Lobster Day". Why do we call it lobster day?? Well, there are always a literal TON of lobsters...Ryan and I each ate 2 1/2 lobsters...body included. I believe we had some other food there, but all I ate was Lobster, clam fritters and stuffed clams...I wanted a devil dog, but those puppy's were GONE in 2 seconds. The closest I got to a devil dog was watching my brother get a 1/2 eaten one. Good thing I have the recipe!

This year 13 of my 14 first cousins were there. Of course, I didn't realize it at the time, I guess someone should have taken a picture or something, it was good to see everyone!

I do have to give a huge shout-out to my Cousin Kathryn, she worked her butt off to help Gram get everything ready for Lobster day. Thanks Kathryn!!

Liam had so much fun, too. He didn't have any lobster quite yet, but he still ate everything else! Luckily there were a bunch of second cousin's there. He had fun playing with his cousin Sean that is a just a few days younger than him!
All the kids had so much fun with the golf cart. At one point, there were like 7 kids under the age of 7, screaming at the top of their lungs...."WE WANT THE KEYS...WE WANT THE KEYS!!". Luckily, one of the older cousins was nice enough to take them around in the golf cart, like a 100 least we got to eat in peace for a few minutes!! 1/2 the time I had no idea where my kids were, it was pretty cool!
