One year, I took them to a Renaissance Fair complete with a live jousting match, and another year I took them to a child-friendly version of the play “A Christmas Carol.” Last year, I surprised them with a limousine ride to look at Christmas lights.
I rented the limousine for three hours. During that time, we rocked out to the radio on full volume, sipped on sparkling white grape juice, snacked on cheese and grapes, snapped group photos in front of pretty Christmas light displays, and ordered food at a Wendy’s drive-thru.
Since the limousine held eight people, my two oldest nieces each brought a friend. That really made it extra fun for them because they took a million selfies of themselves with their friends posing inside the limo!
My sister and I enjoyed ourselves too. Even grown adults find limousine rides exciting and fun! We took a bunch of photos too, even if they weren’t selfies.
Sharing the joint experience of a limousine ride with my sister and her daughters made the holiday season especially memorable.
I know one thing for sure. When my nieces fondly remember their very first limousine ride, who will they think of? Aunt Diana!
Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. – Oprah Winfrey
