The touching 40+ year love story of Mimi and Zayda, now a movie!

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

This past weekend was Mimi and Zayda’s 40th Wedding Anniversary and we surprised the pants off of them with a SURPRISE 40th Anniversary Party. We knew we had pulled off the surprise successfully when Mimi showed up to the venue wearing a “jersey”, jeans, and her black Danskos (“They’re comfortable!”) to find 100 or so of their closest friends and family awaiting them with a hearty “SURPRISE!”

There were many highlights to the wonderful afternoon, though surely the biggest was an 18 minute video created by Jacob that chronicled the torrid love affair. Fantastic news for readers of this blog—we have the video! Check it out now in the photo gallery!

We came all the way to Needham to fly a kite from China

Monday, June 6th, 2011

Mimi and Zayda just came back from a fantastic trip to China and they brought back a cool kite! Lucky timing for us—because we were visiting them, we got to take the kite on its maiden voyage in Needham. It wasn’t a very windy day, but Daddy and Avi worked their kite-flying magic and we had a great time. Mommy even caught much of it on video, now posted in the Photo Gallery.
