Happy New Year!!
Wow, another year down. We celebrated by going to a friend's annual family party that starts in the afternoon then by evening, we all head over to the town's First Night. There are great shows and lots of music and people. We saw The Tramps perform (As in "Burn, Baby, Burn, Disco Inferno!) and watched the fireworks at 9:00 pm. The great thing about First Nights are that you can still make it home and be snuggled up on the couch watching the ball drop at midnight without feeling like you "didn't do anything" to celebrate the New Year. Great when you have young kids.
The New Year weekend, Dr. Fabulous was itching to get outta dodge. He works very very long hours and is always on the go, mentally and physically. Sometimes, he just needs a change of scenery so we'll go somewhere within a 2 hour drive, or even closer, and just stay at a hotel. We've gone to Valley Forge and different small places in PA. We've also headed over the Baltimore, our old stomping grounds. The kids love it and it's so nice and easy.
We hit the Walter's Art Gallery again. The kids loved it this time as much as last!
Then, we did the Aquarium after dark. The kids have never been there. I took CB there when she was about 4 years old. It didn't go well. She threw a very nice, expensive necklace I had received for my 30th birthday into the enormous stingray tank.
No such drama tonight.
These jellyfish were so cool. I'm sorry, I took a thousand photos of them. While I wouldn't want to run into one at the beach, I could watch them for hours in the aquarium.
It was a great way to kick off a brand new year.
I hope 2016 is filled with joy, love, and happiness for you and yours!
