My first long weekend of summer break is almost over. I fret not because I only work three days this week before having eleven days off. SUPER SWEET!

Friday I want to the movies (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom). Sunday was a lazy day and today (Monday) was mostly lazy except at the moment the shower isn’t draining and we might have to call a plumber, ye gods!

Saturday was my dad’s birthday party. He turned 76 on June 14th and wanted to have family over on Saturday to celebrate. He also had a friend entertain us with some music towards the end of the party. There was so much fun and I can’t even remember the last time I’d been to a family party where most of the food was Filipino.

I don’t cook so we ordered lumpia and picked it up before heading to Pittsburg to pick up my grandmother and her housemate. I spent most of the drive talking with my grandmother. She told me some family stories which I just found so fascinating. Sometimes you think you know things and then someone tells you a story and you realize you don’t know much at all.

It was great spending time with family, catching up with my grandmother and aunts and cousins. I think my dad was happy to have everyone there.
