New Jersey Weekend

Last Thursday Chet and I flew to New Jersey for Labor Day weekend so that we could attend Dani and Brandon's wedding (college friends). We stayed with Chet's Aunt Carol, and on Friday night had an absolutely fantastic homemade dinner of filet mignon and fresh corn on the cob (picked straight from the field!).

On Saturday we drove to Morristown, New Jersey for the wedding, but stopped to pick up Michelle at her hotel on the way. The ceremony was held at a Catholic church in Morristown, and the reception was at a nearby (gorgeous) hotel. It was great to celebrate Dani and Brandon's wedding, and to catch up with so many college friends!

On Sunday, Aunt Carol, Chet, and I drove into New York City to see the musical "9 to 5". It was absolutely fantastic, and Megan Hilty, who played Dolly Parton's character Doralee Rhodes, had mastered Dolly Parton's voice and mannerisms! It was, by far, the most enjoyable musical I had ever seen (in my opinion, better than "Wicked", but not quite as good as my favorite, "Oklahoma!").

After the show we shopped for souvenirs (we bought a "9 to 5" magnet) and ate dinner at a local pizza joint. By the way, the weather in the city was absolutly perfect! Thanks again, Aunt Carol, for a fanstatic trip!
