This month has been packed to the brim with “stuff to do” and this past weekend was no exception.
My Dad turned 50 yesterday and being the big kid that he is a party was a must! My mom wanted to surprise him though, because he would appreciate that far more than anything else. What he thought would be lunch with his parents at my Uncle’s restaurant Little Havana turned out to be a surprise party with 40 of his closest/oldest friends and family and his happiness was undeniable! He said he felt like a King
More pictures from Dad’s Birthday party can be seen HERE!
After Dad’s party, Heath and I headed over to his grandmothers for a surprise visit and then once the sun went down over to 34th Street to see the lights. 34th Street in Baltimore has been featured on several Christmas TV shows and the news for years. Every one who lives on that block participates in Christmas in an extreme way (I think it’s part of the deal if you move there). Every night the owners of these homes allow people onto their property to check out their elaborate displays, some even let you inside their houses.
There are a ton more pictures of this street HERE and I really suggest checking them out. The designs these people come up with are amazing and I have a picture of each house!
Overall it was a GREAT weekend even with it’s busy nature. Sadly though, I still have so much to do before Christmas like actually getting my cards in the mail and finishing my Christmas Short Story… oh and wrapping those few presents left. Sigh. Christmas came too fast this year
