UMass College Eid al-Adha Dinner

Sup people, so UMass had a very late Eid al-Adha dinner last weekend 6-11pm very late for a “family dinner”, late am I right? Anyway so we got the family together in the big van and took a 35min ride up there for some food, and to get some laughs. One thing that UMass never fails at is to get a nice good laugh. After many speakers later and a 10-15min wait for the main speaker to come, even though he wasn’t late, I guess they never learnt time management. After the “late” speaker came, my cousin, younger sister (Mya), and myself went back into the main room, where we couldn’t really hear a thing, thanks to a loud table of woman and their loud children. With their husband sitting at the table next to them not helping them even a little bit… so sad. Anyways overall had a good time chilling with the family and having some food and seeing the few people up there I like.

Playing in leaves and Reading with the good Doctor

Ever since Fall started and the leaves hit the ground, I have been trying the take pictures of my ‘Cousins’ little fat-man Shuayb a.k.a Sir Linky outside with the leaves… So after many and i mean many weeks of telling his mother that he needed pictures of himself as a  baby in the brown, red, orange, and gold New England Fall leaves, I finally got took some and I think that came out pretty damn good if I say so myself… and I do :D 
so Sumiyya(Mya) my younger sister, and Najiyah (Naji, his mother) and myself  got him dressed and looked for some clean dry leaves (took like 10mins) but we found some in the front yard. The ground was a little wet from the rain the day before, but Mya had a great idea of putting a brown paper bag under him to keep him from getting wet, but that still didn’t stop him from trying to eat the leaves next to him lol after we went in the house for a little light reading of Dr. Seuss. Anyway here are some of the pictures from the other day!

Sorry ladies we got the only one there lol
