Cousin Reunion in Baltimore/Shabbat Dinner at Grandma's House! (TONS of photos)

Adam got to hang out with lots & lots of his cousins today at our mini family reunion in B'more! :) When I was a little girl, we used to have HUGE family reunions in Lancaster, PA at Park (where my mom is from). I used to look forward to it every year. The "next generation" is carrying on the tradition! Here are some photos from our luncheon:

Cousin Ben & his daughter, Cousin Mila with Cousin Jen & her kiddos Cousin Claire & Baby Blake

Daddy, Uncle Steven, Aunt Elizabeth (holding Adam), Cousins Jamie, Michael & Alex and Cousin Paul (holding Claire)

After lunch, we took a walk over to the B'more Harbor. Adam loved it and kept saying "water" and "go in boat". We actually had him go in the paddle boat but he started to cry "No Like It" and "Adam do it himself" (as in Adam paddle the boat himself). He was *very* upset when he found out that he couldn't paddle the boat himself (I know, I'm getting too strict!) so he decided to forgo the boat ride. He was back to his happy self again when we stopped for ice-cream. :)

We were at the B'more Harbor for 3 hours but it felt like 10! Adam fell asleep within 30 seconds of getting in the car and slept for over 3.5 hours total. We went to Grandma's House for Shabbat Dinner after his long nap. Here are some photos from the evening (lots of fun!!!!):
