We learned later that when Cait saw the door, she actually said to Danny "We shouldn't go in there, someone's having a birthday party!" But Danny encouraged her to go in anyway, and we all surprised her. She was so excited and so were we!
The rest of the evening was spent opening presents, eating delicious cupcakes, and just hanging out. It was so much fun! One of the most exciting presents was the remote-control balloon shark that Alex, Emma, Vick, and I got Cait. She decided to name it Karen, and you can see her flying it here!
|So crazy and cool!|

Friday also marked the beginning of Family Weekend. My parents didn't end up coming because I've seen them for the last two weekends in a row (since I went home for Easter and then went to Boston/home last weekend). However, Alex and Cait's parents came! I had met Alex's parents in August, so it was nice to see them again. I had never met Cait's parents, so it was great to meet them because I've heard so much about them!
Saturday morning was really awesome, because I got to give my FIRST TOUR EVER! Saturday was an Accepted Students Day, so all tour guides (new and old) were there to help out. Cait and I gave a tour together, which was so fun. The families on our tour were awesome and made me so excited to continue giving tours in the future!
After our tour, I did some homework and then went to Emma's chorale concert. The theme was 100 Years of Broadway, which was awesome! Check out a video here:
Afterwards, Mike Check, one of the a capella groups on campus, performed as well. They were awesome!
Following the Mike Check concert was the Dean's List Reception, specially for students who made the Dean's List last semester. It was a very nice way to recognize students for all their hard work!

Since I had such an awesome time this weekend, today has been dedicated to homework. I have a lot to do with finals coming up, but I'm happy with my progress - the library is so great for getting lots of work done!
It's almost time for dinner, and then Alex, Emma, and I will be going to Lit Choir at 5:30 to practice and then perform at Mass at 7. I'm so excited!
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and thanks for reading my blog!
