We made our usual, bi-weekly pilgrimage to the Philadelphia area this weekend to celebrate my nephew’s 10th birthday. My sister was making a spread fit for a wedding and everyone was excited. Unfortunately, the birthday boy got sick! The party was cancelled! The food didn’t go to waste — some of it was generously donated to us and we are grateful. I was and still am incredibly disappointed that the party didn’t happen. I am told a swift re-do is in the works. The weekend wasn’t a complete wash because we were with family. My in-laws took turns visiting with us. Even our Bubbie made it this morning and we were very happy to share Sophia with everyone. Once again, sad to leave and wishing we were living closer to our families.
