Wow what a day we had. Today was the the second TMC barbecue of the year and we had it at this amazing park in Wilton, CT which had a beach and a pond and swings, etc. Perhaps most important was the grill which was huge and active the whole time. If you didn't get a quick response from us today, now you know why. Sorry about that - we like to respond immediately when possible. Oh and thanks to the awesome grill team. Andrew we will miss your finely honed grilling skills.
We had fun swimming, playing soccer, bocce ball
and football. The Dave Rodriguez team apparently was undefeated in bocce and Kevin and I had some good games with John and Tim. John has a wicked backspin that was tough to top. Apparently Dave went to the same backspin school as a child.
Karl and family filled the swimming slot that was vacated by Bob Liu this time. Bob was on vacation. It was great to meet Max's niece and Jan's daughter and all the other kids at the party such as Eriks and Karl's.
It was great celebrating TMC anniversaries. Congratulations to Lisa Morris for being with TMC for 12 years and to Frank Coppola who has been with us since 1998 or 99 - I can't recall.
Also happy birthday to Stephanie, Rachel, NT, Benzy and Joe. If I forgot someone - sorry - I left the cheat sheet at the picnic. I hope you had great time and enjoyed the cake.
Thanks to all who helped organize (Stephanie, Rachel, Heather, etc.), cook & bring equipment. That was great and I can't wait to do it again soon! Blogged via wireless handheld
