Moving right along in my share of my super long weekend.
Sunday was my dad’s birthday. It was a biggie. He was not happy about the number. But we’re all happy for him.
There was some family drama. I’m working on… a lot of things, and I’m sensitive and I’m tired of drama.
But the day was all about sunshine and being together and crabs.
They insist on theming the food at all of their standard pool parties throughout the summer. One is ribs, one is chicken wings, one is burgers and hot dogs. My dad’s birthday is the crab fest.
Last year I was just dipping my toe in to the seafood thing again, but this year I was all about it.
So good. And this little girl stole the show for a while.
Her little personality at 14 months is awesome. She’s not fussy any more, and she is hilarious. She also loves when my mom sings The Itsy Bitsy Spider. Seriously, loses her mind. And at “all through the town,” literally screams, and claps faster than I’ve ever seen anyone clap.
But I digress. I do not have the video to share. So I’ll leave you with another image.
Yes, that is a flower power pool car. Thanks for asking.
My brothers and sister were worried that we didn’t have a cake, so before I brought out my cookie cake, they made him a cardboard replica so he could blow out a candle.
Oh boy. Here’s to a great summer so far, drama and all.
