We stopped by GiGi's house for a quick visit before driving up to New Jersey for Ann & TJ's engagement party. GiGi gave Owen his birthday present - two new books and a Tonka tow truck! Owen was in heaven.
The drive to NJ was going well until we hit bumper-to-bumper traffic near King of Prussia. Luckily, we stopped on the side right near an exit, backed up carefully, and took the exit in order to find a detour. We were over an hour late to the party, but had we kept the course, we probably would have missed it all together.
It was a lovely luncheon honoring my cousin and her fiance. We can't wait for their wedding (they're thinking summer of 2012 after Ann finishes graduate school)! The kids had fun flying paper airplanes through the engagement ring balloon, while Vivi found a metal tub which I turned upside down so she could use it as a walker (sometimes you have to get creative to keep kids entertained!). I didn't get to catch up as much as I would have liked to with every family member since I was chasing Vivi around most of the time we were there, but it was nice to at least see everyone and introduce them to the kids. We'll definitely have more time to catch up at the upcoming nuptials. :)
