Guess what? THIS boy was in town again.
It's always a party when he's around.
He treated us to SHEAR MADNESS.
It's a play in Boston.
It was fantastic!
I love you Ben
(thank you Joy for letting us borrow him)
I try to behave...I really do.
Amy and I dressed up for the occassion.
I can't resist a "Charlie's Angel's" pose in the subway.
The man in the middle?
One of the stars of the play.
Ben has connections.
He's cool like that.
Teaching Amy that we do NOT touch
ANYTHING in the subway.
Feeling patriotic.
(Poor Rach has to associate with us crazies)
You can't take me really can't.
Subway shot - Ben getting cozy with R and A.
We had a great time. Thanks for the night out Ben!

Oh what fun you must have all had last night!! So great for all of you. Poor Jarrod was babysitting while all of you sold your wild oats. Glad you had such a fun time. Loved all the pictures--so good to see you smiling and laughing and enjoying life after what you've been through these past few months. Great medicine in laughing and having fun.

Serious night crawlers!
Amy jo's RED jacket is perfect for hitting the town.
Glad you guys are home safe!

Oh, you guys have the best time together. Makes me miss my family, all so far away. :(

It looks like you had a great time. I hadn't noticed in other pictures, how much Ben looks like your Dad.

April said...

How fun! You deserved a night out!

Paula said...

What are you doing in the flag picture? The Boy Scout pose? Rachael sure looks like she wants to get away! I miss her!

Nanci said...

Poor Rachael, she looks embarrassed. It looked like fun.

Joy said...

You and Ben are crazy together. Glad you had fun. Love the nose hair shots you and Ben are known for. TOOO funny. I'm glad that you have had time together, but can I have him back NOW PLEASE!!!!!

Fantastic snapshots! And I just LOVE that Patriotic Pose!!! Aunt Rachael ~ I can tell you're not embarrassed at all with that opposite-palm-over-your-heart trick. What a trooper! Being raised an only child the first 18 years of my life** I often wished for siblings of my own with whom to have fun growing up. You all have the very bestest family and I thank you so much for adopting us. Oh wait… we adopted You didn’t we! *lol* I’m sure Nana is looking down with a huge smile, too ~ keep up that great spirit!

**yep, my Mom was 42 when she had my baby brother after my high school graduation

FUN! Ben always brings the party, and hooray for Amy Jo in town.
Hope you guys had a nice day today, with your whole family!

Alana said...

Did I mention the part where I've felt disenfranchised since I was twelve and couldn't play on game nights because I didn't have a "partner"? I'm having serious recurring nightmares down here, even if I am married to the best girl in the world. Seriously jealous/angry. Ah well. I loved Sheer Madness when I saw it--hope that it was just as funny for you guys.

Zach, not Alana--I don't want to log out.

KeriLyn and Matthew said...

How fun! I really think that my brother should come and take me out to a play or something....what fun family time!!!

Jenny said...

Oh, sheer madness! Am I mad that I missed it! Silly people. That's what I love about you.

Jane said...

Looks like you had a great time! I am glad--you deserve a night of laughter!!

Your brother looks a lot like your Dad. Do people tell him that all the time?

Rachel said...

Fun! You guys always look like you're having the best time ever...probably because you are, huh?
