A great weekend

I can’t ever forget Mother’s Day since my birthday falls right next to it. Remembering does not sound like much but it’s an accomplishment for me. I have been forgetting one of my best friend’s birthdays for 35 years.

In addition to enjoying my birthday, Lily and I had a great weekend with the kids.

Saturday was the kid’s last ice skating lesson from 11 till 11:30.  We stayed until 3 PM and both kids were exhausted. The girl likes skating, but the boy enjoys it much more.  This is one of the few things where he can go really fast and not get into trouble!

Sunday we took the kids to the Mets game.  To celebrate the holiday they gave Lily and the girl a pink baseball cap.  Naturally the boys had to buy their own and we ended up supporting the economy.

Lily took the picture. The kids know how to smile, I don’t know why they made those faces…

Usually Lily and I go to evening games so we always leave right after the 7th inning.  This game started at 1 in the afternoon so we stayed till the end.  The kids had trouble following the action but they sure liked the cheering when the Mets hit two home runs.  The Mets won 8-3 and we headed back to Flushing to pick up the car and go home.

We have to take the kids to more ball games; we all had a great time.
