Welcomed by the Kerins of Hudson

My dear friend for over 20 years (blangitty frick-a-chick, another "oldie" indicator!), Mrs. Kerins, has been overcoming challenge after challenge these past few years, and I have been too self absorbed to be of any assistance (boo, bad friend, indeed). To help distract us from these circumstances, I conspired with Mr. Kerins to have the Quinones family be surprise weekend houseguests at the Kerins of Hudson's.

John Kerins, Benjamin Quinones, Big Papi, Teddy Kerins

We drove from Frederick to Hudson in about 6.5 hours - not too bad considering that I-76 was shut down from Pittsburgh to 80, so we had to take a detour, AND we were traveling with one little Mister "unenthusiastic carseat rider."

Upon arrival, we went straight to the front door and rang the bell. Mrs. Kerins opened the door to us asking, "Is this where the fan club meets?" She was SHOCKED - she stared at us for a seond in complete disbelief, and then bent over laughing and crying and trying to catch her breath! It was the most wonderful reaction and we all felt so smarty arty at having pulled one over on her - as Mrs. Kerins is exceptionally clever, and I had myself convinced that she had us all figured out!

The Kerins family are all handsome and well - Mrs. Kerins is dilligently working on her recovery. We had a splendid weekend of cooking out, hanging out, playing outside, laughing out loud, and hugging all around :) We love the Kerins and we miss seeing them!!!! Hopefully we will not have to wait too long for a planned weekend of fun ;) THANK YOU to Mr. Kerins for allowing us this intrusion, and T H A N K Y O U to Mrs. Kerins for being such a great sport. :) xoxoxoxo And, Thank You to those beautiful boys for playing so nicely with Benjamin and showing him how the "big guys" roll... xoxo
