The whole weekend went by in a blur. A few highlights:
Best Video Moment: Three-month-old Chloe spitting up on my cousin Sharon at Friday's dinner. Hart announces to the camera, "Chloe puked on THAT girl."
Second Best Video Moment: On Sunday Julian says, "I'm tired. We're all tired."
Skating coach quip: "I am really out of my element here." "Because you are not Jewish?" "No, because this isn't a skating rink."
Awwwwwww: Julian immediately rushes the pulpit after the service, grabs both cousins by the hand, and drags them off to the food.
Most popular guest despite puking: Chloe.
Most panicky moment: Custodian meets me upon my arrival Saturday morning to tell me the caterers cannot find the paper goods I dropped off on Thursday.
Second most panicky moment: Hart, who remains immobile through the whole service.
Words to live by: Cantor's remarks about being surprised by human capabilities, in light of human limitations.
Worst bowling moment: Mom, a former recreational bowler, scores less than 80.
Best bowling party review: Sam B. declares the party to be "AWESSSSSOME!"
Leftovers from Saturday: Noodle kugel, cheese, challah, blintzes, baba ganoush, pastries and lots of cream cheese. Sadly, no lox.
Leftovers from Sunday pizza party: Seven empty cardboard pizza boxes, three brownies, one serving of salad.
