Father's Day At The Beach

For Father's Day my family made me the best challah french toast I ever had. My kids gave me a great t-shirt with the two of them, and it says Kamanders Assemble, which is what I say when I want them to gather together. Then we drove out to the beach for the day. Afterwards we grabbed some seafood for dinner and the kids took a ride on the carousel. It was a great day. Still my favorite holiday.

Mother's Day Cruise To A Grand Island

We woke up bright and early for the 100th anniversary of Mother's Day. Andrea and I made gluten free pancakes while Eason went to the store to get Aviva's special coffee. We couldn't find any gluten free pancake mix so we made from scratch.

After breakfast we took a cruise to a luxurious island for some gourmet cuisine.

Memorial Shindig

Just in time for my mom's birthday the Browncoats of NYC had a Memorial Shindig in her honor. A lot of her friends came and there was a lot of food and drink and stories. Leslie made a slide show of photos from past events. It was very touching. There was also cake.

Up And Down And All Around Cape May

After we got up we got breakfast and went to The Lighthouse. We had a great view of the ocean and Cape May. Then we went walking along the beach on the west side of Cape May Point. The kids collected shells and horseshoe crab shells. The we went and rented a four seat pedal car and road around Cape May. Then Eason and I did our weekly 5k run up and down Beach Avenue in Cape May. It took us between 34 and 36 minutes. At night we went to the movies.

Derby Practice Run

Today was our last day to practice for the Rye Derby in Rye, so we tried to run as close a course as we could to the actual Derby course. We had to take an alternate route towards the end of Playland Parkway since it is not open to pedestrians, but we managed to minimize the detour and maintain the same distance.

We made the mistake of running right after lunch on a full stomach and Eason had a hard time. Towards the end there were lots tears and complaining, but he persevered. In the end, despite the crying, we cut a minute off our best time and ran 3.3 miles in 34 minutes. The best part of all is that, after all his complaining and wanting to stop, it took all of 30 minutes afterwards to be glad he didn't and proud of what he accomplished.
