Memorial Day Weekend

Hey everyone!

Is anyone else glad it is a 3 day weekend??      I know I am!   🙂

Last night my sister came down to stay over for the weekend.

Since it was Pat’s Birthday last week, she made him a cake.


The cake she made was delicious.  My sister is an AWESOME baker.   Although she is a dental hygienist, she wants to own her own bakery someday.  Whenever it is someone’s birthday, a holiday, or any special occasion, you can be sure my sister will bake some unbelievable treats.  She has even made a wedding cake for one of her friends that got married last year.

Bosco was a little concerned about how long my sister was going to be staying over due to the size of her overnight bag.


We had a fun night of pizza, cake, catching up, and TV.  Obviously Bosco didn’t find any of this too exciting.

This morning we were all up early because my sister and Pat were running the Spring Lake Five.   The Spring Lake Five is an annual 5 mile run held every Memorial Day Weekend in Spring Lake, NJ.   I am NOT a runner but went to cheer them both on. There were over 12,500 people registered for the run this year.
