It's no secret that (gasp!) I turned 50 last week, and things got off to a nifty start as we visited my family in NJ the weekend before. Road trips can't be bad with the Hamilton soundtrack and a cross-stitch project to go.
Joseph was most excited to see my sister's dog, Manny, again, but he also got to indoctrinate his grandparents into the phenomenon that is flip tricks.
My parents set up a lovely family dinner for me at a great restaurant, and it was especially wonderful to spend time my aunt and uncle again, who I haven't seen in far too long.
No trip home would be complete without a trip to the Ewing Diner on a Sunday morning. What a great way to kick off my 50th celebration!
