Rob's 2 Cool Nephews

Brian as JFK
Scotty as "Gronk"
My (Rob) younger brother and his wife have 2 sons who are some of the smartest and most witty kids around. They love
   The first two are of Scotty and Brian dressed up for a "dress like a celebrity " day (something I love doing, but always as a superhero). Scotty dressed as a football player known as "Gronk" (I had to look it up). For those of you like me and Tom: "Gronk" is Robert James "Rob" Gronkowski (born May 14, 1989),is an American football tight end for the New England Patriots of the NFL.   Brian dressed as a young, casual John F. Kennedy.

The boys are into space, sports, cars, superheroes, reading, school, video games, the beach, and more. They each have their own sense of humor, and their favorite cartoon characters are "Hoops and YoYo." They introduced us to those two characters and we all send each other cards with the characters (all have funny sound recordings). Although we live 300 miles away, we keep up with their adventures through Facebook posts, emails and calls. Here are just a couple of recent pictures of the boys.
   The third picture is from the Pawtucket Red Sox game in Rhode Island. My brother, sister-in-law and the boys went to the minor league baseball game there to celebrate Father's Day. The picture is of Scotty and Brian with the PawSox mascot.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
