pure imagination

If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it. We celebrated my lovely mother's birthday last week in true Smith fashion. Buff sent out a random txt inspiring the idea, then I brought it to life with a little help from my good friend CS4. There were treats of all kinds, enough to last for months! Of course, in this particular household they didn't last until 9pm. We spent the gluttonous evening watching the kids dance the night away to my mom's new hip-hop CD.
Mother must have been in heaven. This was the look on her face all night!

Told you.

I have the best mom in the world, btw.

We went to Gilbert's Constitution Week celebration this year. After a series of unfortunate comedians, magicians and adolescent boys singing and dancing around the stage, Francis Scott Key showed up and sang the National Anthem. He may or may not have forgotten some of the words, he did mumble through a few lines in the later verses. The fireworks were fantastic!
