Belated birthday celebration

By K.J. Cardinal

We capped off a great weekend today by having my parents down for a belated birthday celebration for my mom.

It's sad to say, but I hadn't seen my parents in over a month and I was definitely jonesing for a fixin' of Meme and Papa.

We celebrated the only way we know how, with good food, good drinks and great company. We supplied the lobster, my parents brought the filets and a full-fledged Cardinal celebration ensued.

Papa did his best to tire Anna out... or maybe it was the other way around??? Either way, those two were in their glory playing together, which was perfectly fine with Meme as she got to spend some serious QT with Leo.

The best part of today's get together is that it officially marks the start of the holiday season. Today was the first of at least three-straight weekends we get to see my folks. The holidays truly don't get any better for me as work slows down and family time picks up.

Happy birthday, Mom! Thank you guys so much for making the trip down to see us! We can't wait to spend the next couple weekends with you guys and the kiddos.

  1. Thanks for making Mom feel special for her birthday. Sorry I couldn't make it down there's probably a good thing because I'm sick as a dog and don't want to get your cuties sick! I can't wait to see you next weekend...are you staying all weekend? I have work Friday night and Saturday night, which unfortunately means I'll be missing the Cardinal Christmas Party...but I think you should part with me this weekend!

    Love ya
