Happy Birthday, Samantha!

Our cousin, Samantha, celebrated her birthday this weekend with a big family bash on Saturday evening. Her parents, Karen and Sal rented out their Church rec center which boasted a full court indoor gym. Let's just say that the gym kept the toddlers to the adults (and everyone in between) totally entertained for the entire time. Sal owns a deli so he and his parents catered all of the food for the party which was indeed delicious (lasagna, eggplant, broccoli rabe, chicken marsala, meatballs, sausage). My husband owns a music store which is very cool but I'd imagine that having daddy bringing home dinner from the deli every so often might be even cooler! Grandma Sacco made her famous sour cream cake which brought smiles to the faces of everyone at our table. No one else dares to make this cake because you simply know that it will never come out as good as Grandma's. It is simply her trademark. Moving on from such indulgences...

Bella got to hang out with Aunt Lindsay who she really adores. And while Bella was literally running Grandma and Papa up and down the basketball court and up and down the bleachers, Dave and I got to shoot some hoops and visit with some other party attendees. We had a fabulous time. Wishing Samantha a very happy birthday.
