We drove 3 1/2 hours one way to visit my dad to celebrate his 70th birthday party. And then drove back home the same day. It was a long ride but luckily my husband did all of the driving. I know, I am spoiled!
It was really hot outside and we sat and talked and then we hit the limit of hotness and moved inside to air conditioning. I think I read somewhere that it takes two weeks for your body to be used to extreme hot temperatures without air conditioning. I will blame my cushy life with AC as to why I am intolerant to high heat!!
My sister and I thought of how we could make this party a surprise party. It was hard since we wanted our dad to cook the meat ;) We brought side dishes and our step mom made the roasted potatoes and the birthday cake.
The entertainment was fun and there were a couple of singalongs. Most of the music is "their" music.....I am proud I knew two of them!!! (one was by the Decemberists, do not ask which one)
My sister and I managed to snag a couple of minutes on a brief walk to take some photos. She mentioned that she might be visiting us in August. I have all my fingers and toes crossed that this works out with her family.
