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.

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.

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.

Where I grew up, there were no Jesus lawn signs. There were no lawns, but Jesus lived right down the block. And another Jesus lived right around the corner. Moving to the suburbs has been quite an adjustment.
