Happy 90th Anniversary, OLL!

On Saturday night, we went to a celebration in honor of Our Lady of Lourdes 90th anniversary. It's Mommy childhood parish and I was even baptised there. So it's a special place in all of our hearts.
Mommy and Uncle Jon went to school at OLL, too, and I got to meet a whole bunch of Mommy's old teachers. I met her principal, Sister Anne, her second-grade teacher, Sister Joan, and her eighth-grade teacher, Sister Jeanne Mary. Neat, huh? And we even got to see Bishop Ryan. He married Mommy and Daddy and even was the pastor of OLL years ago.
And I met many, many friends of Mimi and Pop-Pop's. I can't remember any of their names but they sure were happy to meet me. How nice!
Mimi was on the committee that put on the big event. It was so cool! There was a potluck, hog dogs and games for the big kids and even a band. Mimi and I cut a rug! Pop-Pop was stuck selling beer and wine with our friend, Anton. You had to be 21 to go in the "Beer Garden" so of course I had to stay out. I did say hello to him a few times through the fence. Hee, hee!
I also got to visit with some of my good friends! Here I am with Dele and Meg. Meg is Emily Rose's Mimi. She came all the way from Texas for the party because OLL was her parish, too, before she and her family moved to Texas.
Here's Grammy and Nancy.
And our friends, John and Sue. What a group, huh?
And of course, Emily Rose, Allison and Paul came up for the festivities with Meg. Allison and her two brothers went to OLL school with Mommy and Uncle Jon. We had a blast running all over the place with Jack. I ran so much I sweated through my jacket! Gross!
Allison and I did some dancing, too. Emily was too shy to dance with us. Maybe next time...
So another great party in just one weekend...I am such a social butterfly, huh? Happy Anniversary, OLL! We love you!

Thanks for coming. I had so much fun.

Love you,

It WAS a really fun night, Noah! Nice recap! Sorry you couldn't get in to see Pop-Pop... wrong kind of refreshment for a little guy like you to rehydrate! Hope you got lots of water though because you really DID play hard!

Oh man, that was a fun party! You and Jack and Emily were main attractions for me! I'm glad you got to see [and be seen by] so many of Mommy and Mimi/Pop's good friends! Party on.....
