I might have mentioned that we popped over to New York a couple weekends ago to celebrate a big birthday of my mom's. All in all, the weekend was great fun, with more family hang out time with more family members than I can ever remember, at least as adults. The night before her big party, we went out to a delicious Italian meal in the neighborhood. Just family. Around a big table. With delicious food. And good times all around. Couldn't ask for anything better in my book.
