Madonna and Ed's Brunch Party

Our fern house is located on the street called Hobart, which has an array of old houses from the early 20st centry.

Our beloved neighbors Madonna and Ed invited us to a brunch party on their front porch. Madonna made great french toast stuffed with peaches and cream cheese... Mmm Mmm. Saturday brunch with a group of friendly neighbors was a real treat!

Heritage Square Museum

After a quick ride on 10 to 110, we visited Heritage Square Museum. The eight historic structures constructed during the Victorian Era were saved from demolition and moved to the museum.

Something about these old houses always intrigues me so much. It is not the structures themselves. Of course they are beautiful. Little details here and there make you appreciate the architecture of that past era. Yet, what really makes me feel special is the lives the houses embody. People talked, ate, laughed, cried, and lived in the houses. The people died but the houses lived. If you are interested in the Heritage Square Museum, here is their web site:
