Planning Dad’s 84th BBQ birthday party from Boston, MA to be held in Maryland was a year long was another very “successful” endeavor. According to all who attended they had a great time including me and my 16 family members who traveled from Boston to Maryland to celebrate their Pop’s, Great Granddad and Great Great Granddad’s birthday. Yes 5 generations!! Even though we’ve done this for years, this was the first year we had to stay in a hotel.

I decided that it would be fun to stay right in DC. As a former employee, one of my granddaughter’s secured us a fabulous rate with The Westin, 1400 M Street. The location was perfect for us. The Washington Monument was a leisurely 15 minute walk away and as it turns out quite a few interesting historic buildings like The Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E) Church.  were right down the street. Staying in DC gave me the opportunity to show my youngest (19yrs old) how to navigate the city by noticing the streets are numbered /lettered. He was impressed. 🙂

Taking a breather before planning Dad’s next birthday.
