I am in DC, well, technically, Columbia, Maryland which is where my youngest brother lives. It is home to my mom and numerous cousins as well.
The drive here was uneventful, which is always a good thing, when a mom is driving with 5 boys. Traffic was ridiculous! Ridiculous, with a capital R! It took us 1.5 hours to get through 5 miles due to construction. Did I mention the van has no a/c?
Moving on, we arrived in good time and the boys did great. Saturday we went to my brother’s church… so weird seeing him act like a grown up and pastoral. 🙂
My kids went to spend the night at Auntie Tina and Uncle Raj’s house. They had a lovely time… and I was kid free! Wahoo! Josh hung out with my mom and it was a night off for me! Did I say… “Wahoo!”
My brother and sis-in-law went out to a gospel concert, “JJ” Hairston and Youthful Praise… Despite “JJ” and Crew being 2 hours late… it was church! I loved and miss having that in my life, at least once in a while. Maybe we are going to have to make more effort to check out the Toronto talent more often.
We left the concert early… at close to 11 p.m. to go get some food. I have not been out this late in a long time! Out and about after midnight and no kids to wake up too. (Thanks Tina and Raj, Reg and Kumar).
Today we went to a pool splash park with the cousins… this meant a dozen kids under the age of 5! What a hoot! Even the rain and cool weather and dark clouds did not hinder the good time!
Nothing like family and fun… cousins and chips… water and and more water!
We are having a great time!
Tomorrow is shopping! We are hitting the outlet mall and gonna shop till we drop, literally, or run out of money!
