Georgetown

Highlights from our weekend with MotherCheer and TheBoss
  • familiar faces and family finally
  • Georgetown Inn (and watching MotherCheer run the customer service people around and around to make us happy. It was inspiring.)
  • the C&O Canal Tour
  • Georgetown Cupcake
  • Michael's new shoes (to replace the old ones which he has hand since, get this, 8TH GRADE. After I poked my finger through the bottom of the sole I felt guilty for eating out once a week and buying the occasional "luxury items," as Mikey deemed them, at Safeway like string cheese).
  • Anthropologie (even though it makes me want to spend a lot of money and possibly stow away in the store for a few days)
  • Ben's Chili Bowl. The chili, the dogs, the fries, were all excellent. Obama ate there once. We ordered the same thing he did.
  • The monuments at night. It doesn't matter how many times I see them lit up, I am moved everytime. There is a certain patriotic magesty on The National Mall at night.
  • Sleeping in. And sleeping in a King-sized bed. We did snow angels, well, sheet angels. Simultaneously.
  • Riding bikes all over DC. It was such a great way to get out, get moving, and cover nearly the entire district.
  • The grand opening of the old building in Eastern Market (it burned down last summer). I've never seen the market so crowded. And full of balloons!
  • Nick's Riverside Grille. We ate right on the harbor and watched the sun set. The night was perfect.
  • Showing off our cool ward out here.
  • Mount Vernon. It was one of the first times Mikey has really wanted to live out here. The view over the Potomac really was breath-taking.
  • Perfect weather. For four days straight. (Minus the 15 minute MONSOON that MotherCheer so courageously wanted to run through. We did. And we got soaked to the bone).

But we're rappelling in Zion tomorrow so you're jealous of us. But I'd rather be with you naked in a blizzard anyday. That's a figure of speech and not meant for a mental picture. I love you guys.

I'm sure you've posted on FB before, but I'm not on there often enough. I was so glad to get a link to your blog! I'm home this morning, and have had such fun reading through some of them! What fun you've had, and what interesting events and thoughts! Wow! I was totally entertained. Isn't it amazing to be able to share all this? Yay for Technology! But an even bigger YAY for great people like you and Mike. Glad you're having such fabulous experiences!
