This past Saturday was the final hoo-rah for the 30th birthday. My mom organized a nice trip up to Berlin, Maryland for a lunch celebration. Berlin is about forty-five minutes from my parents’ house. The party crowd included my mom, sister, sister-in-law, mother-in-law, and best friend who drove down from Chestertown, Maryland. I’m ever so grateful that everyone took the time out of their day (especially at this busy time of the year!) to catch up. We enjoyed a great lunch where several quiches were consumed as well as a vegetarian wrap for me. After that we were off to our *free* carriage rides. Here are some pics from the day…
I’m so thankful to have these women to celebrate with. I typically feel uncomfortable being the sort-of center of attention, but it is nice to have everyone together. If it means that I have to have a birthday, then so be it! We also had a nice Christmas-y celebration at church today, and little H was excellent. He always behaves so well for his daddy! I must admit I’m a little bit jealous of the Mr.’s aura that seems to put Holden in the ship-shape mode.
Even after all this excitement, we still have more coming up with a Christmas carol sing, volunteering time, family dinners and breakfasts, and just happiness in general spending time with family and NOT having to be at work by 7:25 in the morning. Season’s greetings to you and yours!
