I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend. As you might have read, I went to Unadilla and spent it with my family. My sister was kind enough to surprise me with an update yesterday while I left my computer unattended. I went to Herkimer to visit my brother and his family. I have a new niece as of just over one week ago. They named her Paige. She’s adorable and very good-natured, not fussy at all. I also got to see my niece Lily, who is turning into a very pretty little girl. And then there’s Gavin, a pretty typical 6-year-old. He and Daniel certainly seem to have a good time entertaining each other.
We had steamed shrimp, steak, potatoes, corn, and salad for dinner on Sunday night. It was a heavy meal, but it was delicious. It was the first time my family had peel-and-eat shrimp, not just shrimp in a salad or pasta dish, or cocktail shrimp. They seemed to enjoy it. It’s good when you can expose people you love to new things.
