I mentioned before how my grandma was very ill, well she passed away in the beginning of July. I was very honored to be able to give a eulogy at her funeral representing all of the grandchildren. I was afraid I would not get through it because I would be emotional but I said I had cried so much when she wasn’t doing well before she died that I said I would try very hard to get through it for her and thankfully I did. I am very sad that she died but glad she went peacefully in her sleep. I know she is looking over me. I will always love her and will never forget her and I know she is in a better place. We also went to two other wakes this month, my boss Robert’s father died and my friend from Hope’s Club, Missy DeMuth died, that was really sad, Missy was always so happy. My Mom and I drove to Elbridge for the wake and waited in line for one hour because she had so many friends there, we finally had to leave to be somewhere else and never went in.
While I was interning at the Congressman’s office they threw me a small birthday party, they gave me fruit, donuts for everyone and gluten free baked goods for me and flowers. The Congressman was there and I was able to meet his youngest son Liam, he is also very nice. They held it in the conference room and gave me a card signed by everyone at the office. I was definitely surprised and enjoyed every little bit of it. I love Interning there everyone is just so nice and pretty cool!
The week of my birthday I had gluten free cupcakes and it was a weeklong celebration. It started out with a dinner cruise with friends and family on Skaneateles Lake. I went upstairs on the boat to look around and when I didn’t come down for a while my Mom came up looking for me, she couldn’t see me until she looked up and saw I was piloting the boat. It was pretty cool, the pilot asked me if I wanted to so Mom got a nice picture of me doing it. The next day Mom took me out to lunch at Sake Bomb, we weren’t very impressed by it at all so we will not be going there again but it was pretty cool spending a lunch date with my Mom on my Birthday. Aunt Julie stopped in to say hello so that was nice also.
In our family we always get to pick where we want to have dinner for our Birthdays, so I picked King David’s, Greek food in Fayetteville, we really like that since we went to Greece 4 years ago. We had a really nice dinner there and then went home to open presents (I didn’t get the yellow car I picked out but got some really great presents anyway, lol). My Mom made me an ice-cream cake that was really yummy! I am spoiled and I love it, I got everything I had asked for!
I went to camp Casowasco at the beginning of the month, we swam, went on boat rides, hay rides, had campfires and dance parties, ate a lot of good food and had tons of fun with all of my friends. I got to speak to the entire camp about what camp means to me, our group is probably about 20-25 campers but this was all of the campers there, probably about 150 and then more with the counselors. It was awesome. I had a great time just goofing off with my friends. They also have a giant slide into the water that we went on. I passed the swimming test you have take to go into the deeper water so I also got to kayak which is always fun.
