4th of July Weekend!!!

This is my famous Aunt Sylvia & Cousin Xavier (the aunt that my sister and I fight over, all the time)!! We were having lunch at the Mustard Seed Restaurant in Solvang, CA. (She's much prettier when she smiles, but I took the pic before she knew it.... in fact, she'd probably kick me if she knew I was posting it... LOL!!)



This is a glimpse of the festivities we enjoy from my mom's front yard... this was the very end of a grand finale of just one of THREE shows of which we have a perfect view!!!



Hope you all enjoyed your holiday weekend as much as we did!!

  6. how neat you got to spend some time with your favorite aunt and uncle and in Solvang! bet you did enjoy that very much!

    I tried to do the video of the fireworks and it "stuck" for me; I couldn't get it to play; it could be my computer though

    looks like an awesome sight though!

  8. Hi Joann,
    Looks like you had a great time. Better not let your favorite aunt know you posted that photo of her on the Internet!
    Best,

  11. Hi Joann,

    I'm a bit behind on posts! I am glad you got some down time with the family for the 4th. I can tell your Aunt has a pretty smile, and I concur with the rest - Don't tell her you posted her photo, LOL.

  13. Dear Joanne, hiya! Many thanks for your great comments! I strongly believe that Michael was a great man: a musician who over came lots of harshness in his youth. So we can be inspired true!
    I love you Joanne
