I was caught by surprise when Jennifer and Howie decided to show up with Patriots shirts as well as a regulation football. I love surprises, but thought the ball was a little over-inflated. Then again, I think I've become used to my son's Nerf football! Jennifer and Howie had a lot of fun throwing the ball around and even calling some plays, that is, until Howie decided to knock Jennifer over! I mean, the girl wasn't even wearing pads! Seriously, it was nothing but fun; I think my face still hurts from all the laughter. Can't wait for their big day later this fall at the Boston Harbor Hotel!
