Not so Relaxing Memorial Day Weekend

I've been sitting here all morning, uploading pics and watching tv.....what a waste of a day, LOL! It's been a waste, but I am really tired....this past weekend was anything but relaxing! Normally, we would be on vacation in Florida, but not this year. This year, I didn't want to interfere with my son's baseball schedule, so we have planned our vacations for August and November.

So, for Memorial Day there is a Little League tournament that runs every year and this is the first year that my son participates. 1st game was Thursday night & fortunately they won so they wouldn't have to play again until Sunday morning.
Saturday morning we took advantage of the free time and went to the beach with friends! It was a great time. Nothing to do except lay out, relax & have fun!



Soon it was 2pm and we had to start heading back home. My son had to be back at the Hoboken Little League for a skills competition, so we were out of the beach by 3 and back home by 4! This competition was nice, the boys had fun!

The next morning we were up early for another 9:30 am game!



This was a great game, many bad calls, some spectators getting thrown out...LOL....but in the end, WNY wins it again...woo-hoo!!!

Now the next game would be on Monday at 9:30, ay-another early morning! We were there again & again the boys played a great game. They beat Hoboken, so this gave them a couple hours off before it was time to play the Championship game. At 2:45 it was time to play again and it was against Hoboken again! I actually felt bad for those kids, they must've been exhausted! This would be their 3rd game in a row, and it was extremely hot!

Game was great....even better than the ones before! Needless to say, WNY won and were now Memorial Day Weekend Tournament Champs!!! Woo-Hoo, congrats to our WNY All-stars!!!


After this win, the boys went back to WNY for a parade and some of us parents went to East LA for margaritas....lmao!!! Big mistake for me!! I had 2 and couldn't walk in a straight line!!! It was a good time, and now I know that I can definitely go back....loved their steak nachos, yummy!! Margaritas were great too, strong but great! :D

Hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day Weekend as much as we did!!!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.














After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.


Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
