Jennifer Aydin and Bill Aydin had the ultimate parents' weekend at the University of Connecticut. After their eldest son, Justin Aydin, left for college in 2022, The Real Housewives of New Jersey parents have missed their college sophomore.

Just before their son moved to Connecticut last August, Jennifer shared a heartwarming message for him on Instagram. "Your family will always be here for you, no matter what!” she wrote in the post. “And we’re going to miss you like crazy!! Especially me.”

Luckily, the family has had opportunities to spend quality time with their college student since then. 

In a September 20 Instagram post from this year, Jennifer shared: "It's official! I have a 19 year old! He's away at school and we were lucky enough to have him for just enough time to cut a good ol' fashioned ice cream cake, just with the family, just us."

And in mid-October, Jennifer and Bill had a chance to visit with Justin once again.

In an October 14 Instagram post, Jennifer shared a photo of herself and her husband flanking Justin. All three Aydins had big smiles on their faces and stood in a field filled with people who appeared to be other parents and students. 

Jennifer warded off the October chill with a snuggly grey coat printed with the Louis Vuitton logo, while Bill was quite the dashing dad in a quilted black jacket. Meanwhile, Justin looked so happy in a New Jersey hoodie. 

Happy family gatherings, of course, are nothing new for the Aydins. In fact, before Justin left for college last August, Jennifer and her family hosted an epic family dinner at home. In an August 2022 Instagram Story video, Jennifer showed the group’s “farewell dinner for Justin” and shared that he was “leaving for college tomorrow.” 

The mouthwatering dishes, cooked by Jennifer’s mother, included a variety of kebabs, salad, lamb, rice, and more. And of course, in true Jennifer style, there was a gorgeous (albiet small) cake.

In the caption of an Instagram video showing the family members singing to Justin as he stood in front of the confection, Jennifer wrote, “We’re loud! We’re proud! We’re a loving family!! And it’s time to see our [firstborn] off to college! As it said in your teeny, tiny cake (Thanks Dad and Amo Tony) ‘KICK ASS!’”
