Last week Chris & I got to be a part of the audience at THE VIEW. It was a really cool experience. We are not regular watchers - or watchers at all for that matter - but it was definitely a great way to spend part of our day! We were there on St Paddy's day, dressed in out GREEN! We had really great seats and Marisa actually got to do the commercial break with Whoopi. How cool is that!! Elizabeth Hasselbeck spoke directly to Chris which he thought was AMAZING! They had three guests, Gary Sinise was there promoting the documentary "Brothers At War" which is the executive producer for, Dr Drew from Celebrity Rehab promoting his new book (if you really want a copy we have 2 and would gladly give them away :)) & last but certainly not least Jay Mohr. Jay was hilarious! Probably the highlight of the show that day. Afterwards we headed to Little Italy for some pizza. Another great day in NYC!

In case you missed the show you can view it at ABC's website.

Beantown Roadtrip

One of the great things about living in the Northeast is there are so many fun places that are within driving distance from us. One of the great places we'd never been before was Boston so we along with our buddies Jeff & Cindy Thompson decided to make a road trip of it. Since three of the four of us are unemployed we decided to see how we could do this on the cheap and still hit the major things we needed to see. It was a quick Friday evening to Sunday afternoon but we did it!

For those of you who have been to Boston you know that you can't do Boston without at least three things: Fenway Park, Clam Chowder, and JFK. Saturday was a busy day of walking the Freedom Trail so that we could see all the historic buildings and eating lunch at the oldest constant running restaurant in America...Ye Old Union Oyster House. Later that afternoon we toured the JFK Presidential Library which I thought was really cool. Saturday evening we rocked out Harvard Square so that we could see the university and eat some Cajun/Mexican was seriously spicy.

Sunday we got up and on our way home took a tour of the oldest US battleship the USS Constitution, had lunch at the House of Blues and saw Fenway Park. We had a great time and did it all for about $250! Who says you can't have a cheap vacation!

Side Note: Chris failed to mention that we also got to visit a childhood friend of mine. Rachel & I have been friends since sometime in Elementary school. We recently reconnected. It was great to see her and meet her husband Stephen and new baby girl Marlee. We rarely see each other, but always enjoy catching up! Here is to seeing each other before another ten years passed :)

Brooklyn Kale Cox

We are proud to be an Aunt & Uncle again. My sister gave birth to Brooklyn Kale Cox this morning at 8:10am. She is a big girl, weighing in at 8lbs 13oz! Susan is doing great! All the grandparents are loving it! Drew has been all smiles since she arrived - what a sweet big brother. We look forward to seeing more of Brooklyn later today via Skype and maybe this summer we will get to love on her in person. Congratulations Susan, Andrew & Drew!
