March 10, 2016 - My Mom's...39th birthday! Again!
It was also the first birthday of my Mom's niece, Keira, so the birthday girls had to go out to celebrate with some ice cream.
It's hard to believe just how much Keria's grown in the last year.
As the saying goes
"They grow up so fast."
The "they" in that phrase was so commonly applied to me and my brothers, that it's a little odd to bestow it on someone else. I guess that's part of getting "old!"
For my Mom's birthday, we had a date to the Fabulous Fox theatre for a performance of the Piano Guys. A one night performance - on her birthday - how cool is that?
We're the two biggest music lovers in the house - if there's ever music being played around the house, it's either coming from her or from yours truly.
Yes, I'm driving. No, my eyes are NOT looking at the road.
Coincidentally, we had friends just across the way at Powell Hall.
Well, I didn't know this, but you're not allowed to get photos of the Fox Theatre.
(From this shot, I could see why, because it appears to be a sacred Buddhist temple or something.)
That said, I hope you appreciate this post all the more when you take into account that I was tracked down by security and could have been escorted out of the theatre for getting these photos!
And, of course, I wasn't able to get photos or video of the Piano Guys' performance, and this is the closest thing I can find:
It was a lot of fun to spend the evening together.
Little did the two of us know that my Grandpa would pass away just a few days later and we'd have to heavily lean on one another for support in the following week.
