Vacation: August 2009

Now it's time to cover the great times of The Weiser Family's Annual August vacation. This year we were in Bellingham, MA at the new home of my son Ben and wife Maria. Other than the health issues, we all had a great time. Let's start with the pictures at the pool in the backyard.

At the Pool

My perfect granddaughters: Lindsay and Lauren

Alec and Heather read by the pool.


SIL Alec and my son Ben.

DIL Maria and Lindsay

Alec and Ben play "Lazy White Man Raft Basketball." It's the new rage.

Lauren prepares to jump. She doesn't want to lose her nose.

Maria loves her pool.

Lindsay, Bud & Lauren chilling.

We have a family tradition (usually for a holiday picture) for the photographer to yell, "Crazy picture" and we respond, well, crazily. I'm holding Lindsay, Lauren is on the right and Alec is on the raft. We'd be VERY crazy.

At the ballpark

We take in a minor league game every year on vacation. This year we went to Rhode Island to see the Red Sox' Triple A club, The PawSox. There is no better family entertainment. It turned out to be a great game with Paul Byrd's last tune-up pitching before throwing a gem with the big league club four days later. The Red Sox won with a walk off hit in the ninth.
