GD’s Birthday Week Long Celebration

Families March, Myrtle Beach, 4th of July, and Heavenly Bodies – and NYC (July 2018)

What a wonderful week!


In the span of nine days we participated in various activities and outtings that merit memoralizing with pictures. Each gets their own album:

[] After the march we drove to Myrtle Beach to visit our good friends, Dave and Denise to see Dave act in a play at a community theater – and go to the beach.



[] We came home in time to partake in the Takoma Park 4th of July Parade and later enjoyed the fireworks after visiting with neighbors for a cookout.


[] After resting for a brief couple of days we took Greyhound to NYC where we thoroughly took in the amazing exhibit at the Met – and Cloisters – “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”. We also had a blast at the Guantanamera Restaurant.
