This week we drove out to Waynesboro, PA, where Nicki went to high school. Waynesboro is quintessential Small Town, U.S.A. in the middle of rolling farm country. We were escorted around town by one of Nicki's best friends, Maria, (For some reason, everyone over the age of 60 refers to her as "Marie.") and we only visited people named Joanne.

Thursday afternoon we went to Princeton and Michayla's future alma mater, Princeton University. We ate lunch at PJ's Pancake House (Not on the list of 1000 Places to See Before You Die, but should be). Next we did a little shopping, had ice cream at Thomas Sweets (again, not on the list of 1000 Places to See Before You Die, but should be) and then we showed Michayla the campus. Here's Michayla celebrating being valedictorian of the graduating class of 2027.

On the 17th, we drove over to Willow Grove, PA (Home of the fabulous but long gone Willow Grove Amusement Park) to see Nicki's parents, Bubbe and Grampa G. Michayla was forced to endure Grampa G's famous Tickle Torture, but she never divulged the secret information.

October 15th, Mark's dad celebrated his 80th birthday! As if seeing his new grandchild wasn't enough, we all piled into the car and went to an Italian dinner at the Saint James Catholic Church. Oy with the pasta sauce. Mark's mom was beside herself as she worked the room, showing off Michayla.

On Tuesday the 20th of Sept. we took Michayla for her first visit to her very own doctor, Dr. Pang. We all celebrated by taking 5 vials of Michayla’s blood and scooping out 5 stool samples from her stanky-poo diaper. All of the tests came back A-Okay. Yea! Michayla celebrates by doing the Bottle Dance from Fiddler on the Roof.

Tuesday night was the first meeting between Michayla and Ebbets. Ebbets was a little confused at first (ah hell, she’s still confused) but they’re getting along swimmingly and when Michayla goes to bed, Ebbets lays by her crib.
Marty, of course, sleeps in the crib.

Oct. 4 Michayla, along with her mom and old man, attended her first kid’s Roshashana service. Michayla loved bouncing to the music and dad loved that it was only an hour long.
Then it was off to Santa Monica for Tashlic on the Beach, where we cast away our sins on the water. Tashlic is really special to us, because 2 years ago at Tashlic, our friends Richard and Susan recommended Norman to us. And now look at us. Here’s Michayla on the beach doing her best Corporal Agarn impression.
