Hi guys! What a fun and amazing weekend! I was blessed to turn 38 years old this Saturday. I don’t take that for granted. Several dear friends and family members didn’t make it to that age, so I thank God for allowing me the privilege of living. I hope not to disappoint Him as I continue to journey through life. Let’s talk about the weekend.
Friday. We were supposed to see The Tomb of Christ exhibit at the National Geographic Museum in Washington D.C., but traffic destroyed my attempt at getting the family there in time for our timed entry L. Bug and S. had already seen it, but I hadn’t had the opportunity. I was pretty bummed to miss it, but I didn’t let it ruin the weekend. We decided that we would go to the “Golden Triangle” in DC to watch the outdoor movie “Jumanji”. We stopped first at the local Wawa and loaded up on subs and quesadillas, mac and cheese, a strawberry smoothie for me, and peach iced tea. Then, we traipsed our way to the lawn, unloaded blankets and bean bags, set up food, and settled in for a great evening. It really was. The atmosphere was fun. The temperature was comfortable with a nice breeze blowing. The movie was funny and the kids enjoyed themselves. Amariah did get a bit fussy towards the end because she was tired, but a few rocks in my arms and she was out. We made it back to the house a bit after midnight and all promptly fell asleep.

We ended up stopping at my brother and sister in love’s home to drop of the kids to be babysat for the evening. We left there and went to an obscure looking cement building. I was super confused by this point. We walked in and there were a host of friends and family ready to play Escape Room with us! It was a new Escape Room in the city and we got to play for my birthday! It was such a great time! We laughed. We tackled clues. We had NO idea lol. I absolutely loved it lol I look forward to doing it again. And no…we didn’t escape lol.
Afterwards everyone asked my preference for food and because of the late hour, I suggested going to Longhorn for dinner. It was a great choice as we all laughed and talked sports and parties and life. The server was fantastic and gave me the best sundae I have ever had in life. Seriously, I have no idea where they get their ice cream from, but I need the number! We closed them down, gave hugs, and thanks and went our separate way. After picking up the kids and returning home, it was almost midnight. I was TIED and completely happy. I went upstairs to change clothes when S. called me down. He and the kids had a beautiful birthday cake and a birthday cupcake! The cupcake was because my favorite cupcakery didn’t give me the free birthday cupcake they usually do and I casually joked about it to S. He heard and went out and got one for me lol. I love him.
All in all, this was such an amazing weekend and I couldn’t have asked for a better celebration. God truly is an amazing God. Thanks for all the love and birthday wishes. Here’s to a fabulous 38!
