We went to Binghamton this past weekend for our Callahan (Nate's mom, Grammy's) family reunion. Since Will and Luke were little, we've split the long drive into two days. We left Thursday, spent the night in Maryland, and arrived in New York in the early afternoon on Friday. Nate and I were winded. All 3 boys were happy to be out of the car.

After settling in, we were quickly introduced to several family members from out of town - farther than we'd come - Rochester, Minnesota and Boca Raton, Florida. They looked decidedly less tired than we did. And shortly thereafter, family arrived from northern Virginia. We were ready to go to dinner with our small party of 22.

In true traditional Binghamton fashion, we went to Sharkey's to eat. Wings, pizza, spiedies, kielbasa, city chicken, pierogi and halupki... you know, health food. We had a great loud time, getting to know distant family and catching up with cousins we haven't seen in a long time.

Luke had the most fun with the old fashioned bowling game down the center of the bar. Will enjoyed kisses from Grammy and showing off his new glasses. And once Matt woke up, he only enjoyed sitting on my lap.
