Saturday, aside from being Simon’s first 5K, was Auntie Abby’s birthday. Since the girl knows how to celebrate, she was in Brooklyn first thing to run the race as well, and was, of course, there to help bring Simon down the homestretch and cheer him on as he broke the tape.
And then, because we know how to celebrate, we went home and had cake.
Pumpkin cake with brown-sugar frosting. Quite tasty . . . but if I were to make it again, I might halve the amount of frosting. Delicious, yes, but also very sweet. A little goes a long way, and the recipe makes more than a little.
Anyway, we’re super lucky to have Abby living close by. She’s a champion aunt and babysitter and it’s awesome to have her around.
