I'm sure we've been missed

So, I'm sure you've all been wondering-where is Chelsea?  What has been going on with her?  Did she go on a family trip to Rhode Island or something?!  Well if you were thinking that, you'd be on the right track.  We DID go on a family trip to Rhode Island!  My biggest brother (by biggest I mean oldest) got married in Connecticut a few weeks ago so the whole fambily came!  We got to stay in a Haunted Mansion, which I have zero pictures of, but if you follow Cessy on Instragram you've already seen most of them-she tried to post a picture a day.  So here are the pictures that I do have!
Sullivan on the beach in Misquamicut, Rhode Island-oh, you didn't know this place existed?!  Well it does.  And it's fabulous.

I'm sorry, but don't you love having a cousin like Sophie.  I know Tessa does (Tessa isn't so bad herself!).  That girl can take some pictures-notice the shocking difference between skin tones...Soph is lucky she got Ashlii's skin...

We went crabbing with my new SIL Julie's family-I was deathly ill, but it was still amazing.  You put squid on a string and crabs just come and attach themselves to it.  It's gross in a good way.

We ended up taking family pictures there, and this is the best one of my little family of four.  That is literally how Sullivan looks in all of them.

This was at the wedding-it was this gorgeous old plantation, and there was just a lot of photo ops...BUT, since we didn't even bring our camera, Alex got this with his phone.  And I can't upload the ones I have on my phone because I'm computer illiterate, so just imagine a really pretty girl in a cute new organza skirt with super high heels and a semi shaved head...are you picturing me?  You should be.

Sullivan going for a walk in the woods outside Julie's dad's house. (Julie is said SIL)
He looks old.

Wha, wha, what?  Alex met Mark Ruffalo.  He has the best luck with celebs...have you guys met Mark Ruffalo?  Or Neil Patrick Harris?  Or Gordon Ramsey?  Or Tracey Morgan?  Because Alex has...it's mostly the only reason I fell in love with him, which is weird since he met all those people after we had been married for like 4 years...

Sullivan became this type of child on the trip.  Apparently he likes having me as his mother...it's sooooo annoying. (but also I love it.)

Again, this is Tessa's cousin Sophie.  And again with the pictures. 
Sullivan and Dexter, playing the haunted piano.  It was probably haunted...

We went to Dave and Buster's one of the days-and I may have beaten my dad in this b-ball game.  Then I realized it was a major fluke and lost by like 20.  And Devon was there too!!  He beat me too.

These pictures are way out of order, so sorry-but this was the reason for the season.  My brother and his wife-eating their cake...Isn't love great?

There was dancing-look at my dad.  He's terrific.  And this is a very unflattering picture of me-Ash and Rubie look good though.  But pay attention to Cecily (in black).  She's mid butt smack, probably.  And Cailey (in green) is most likely getting low while holding her sleeping two year old....

We took all the kids to the zoo one day while the boys drove to Boston for a Red Sox game.  It was just a zoo.

BUT they brought us home some Mike's Pastries!!  Gotta love them. 
I can't remember the name of this place, but it was on Diner's, Drive-ins, and Dives.  It was pretty good.

Adult table.

All the children with their electronics. 

And, this is the best picture ever.  Everyone was so scared.  Except my brother Cole.  He ain't afraid of no ghosts.

And that's it.  See you in 6 months!

Holy crap I could stare at these ALL DAY LONG. First of all...my legs look AWESOME in that awkward pic of your dad pooing in his tux. Second...Sophie and Tessa....I'm sorry no one else has kids like them. Where does Soph think she is going in that Zoo picture...all the kids in that picture for that matter look SO hilarious. I loved this post. Make my day much? Do something funny again soon.
