Saturday evening was the "prenuptual dinner", which Erik helped to MC. It was an evening of toasts to Alex and Masha -- Dan rose to the challenge for our group.
Toby came to the dinner. He slept through most of the meal. He woke up hungry, had a bottle and then was perfectly happy to hang out with his parent's grown-up friends! Here's Lale enjoying a cuddle.
Emre and Lale enjoying the baby -- possibly the next set of new parents in our bunch?
Masha and Alex making a final thank-you speech at the end of the evening.
Toby eventually drifted off again and was happily cuddled in Patrick's arms... although Pat didn't want the adorable moment documented!!
Sunday morning, we all met up in the park (minus Andrew and Yoanna, who were home with their 2-year-old and not-quite-born-yet new baby). We had breakfast and then hopped into cabs to go down to Chinatown.
It was hot as blazes, and humid, that day but Toby was a real trooper, riding in his stroller and his Baby Bjorn.
We watched an Independence Day parade in Chinatown -- it was pretty impressive.
When we finally got back to the hotel we were all hot and sweaty, including Toby. Here's Toby enjoying a cool washcloth on his forehead.
We hired a babysitter through the hotel to take care of Toby during the wedding. She was wonderful -- an Italian grandmother even shorter than Nicole!
