With Memorial Day, we thought we had an easy weekend. No baseball or softball games to worry about. But, what ended up happening was a fun-filled and busy weekend. Let's start with Friday night....
5/22 - It was an early happy birthday dinner for Donny at El Azteca. The margaritas flowed and the food was decent.
5/23 - Day at the National Zoo. It was a very nice day to walk around the park. Walk was the optimal word as we spent 4 1/2 hours seeing various birds, mammals and reptiles. While we were able to see Jake's favorite, the elephants, none of Hanna's favorite, the polar bear, was present. And after a long day at the zoo, what could be more satisfying then the first snowball of the season. Ahhhhh!!!
5/24 - BBQ at Bill and Alisaa's. Getting together with family is always fun. Throwing things on the grill is always fun. So, my my math logic, throwing things on the grill with family is always funner. Steak, crab cakes, corn on the cob. The food was top notch.
5/25 - Baseball and BBQ. To celebrate my dad's borthday, we used the kid's discount tickets to go see the Orioles take on the Blue Jays. We lasted about 5 1/2 innings until the weather was too much to bear and we headed over to mom and dad's for BBQ (see math equation for 5/24). Good thing the Orioles held on for the win. 4-1 was the final. BBQ was old-fashion Kavalsky "Myrtle Beach"-style. We had steamed shrimp, taco salad and chicken on the BBQ. Follow that up with a huge bowl of fruit (watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple) and (as Tiff likes to put it) a deconstructed trifle for dad's birthday cake.
Wow!!! Awesome weekend. Don't get many like that, so I had to share.
Peace in the middle east and I am outta here.....
