As is the ritual during the summer and fall months, we make an almost bi-weekly pilgrimage to Delaware and Pennsylvania to attend the many birthdays of our littlest cousins. As tiring as it can be to make the trek, we always enjoy our time and are happy to see our families. This past weekend was our youngest cousin’s 1st birthday party. The theme was The Cat in the Hat and it was executed beautifully. My cousin brought in a musician to do some signing and dancing with the kids. Sophia couldn’t get enough of all her cousins, the food was delicious and if you know my cousin, you know she likes to bake. The dessert table rivaled the savory offerings.
When the party dust had settled, it was quiet sibling (okay, cousin) time at my parents’ house. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think they were siblings and that is just how I like it.
