It was zia’s* 93rd birthday on Feb. 20th. Our whole family (from CNY, CNJ, and SJ) gets together for it in Baldwinsville each year, as if it were a family reunion. Weekends like this are always a good time. :]
*Zia means “aunt” in Italian. I’m not sure why we don’t call her zia Maria, since that’s her name, but we’ve always just said zia.
