Matt had a busy work week prior to Memorial Day so he decided to take that Friday off as well to make it a four day weekend... lucky for us because his friend called to see if we wanted to go sailing that afternoon! The friend and his wife recently completed a rigorous multi-week training course and now they are itching to get as much sailing fun in as they can this summer. His wife was actually out of town this time, so Matt got to be learn the ropes, literally, while I made sure his two little girls didn't get in the way. Which was super easy because they were super well behaved. And asleep in my lap.
We took one of these little fellows out and had a great time gliding past the Naval Academy and around the Severn River.
Back at home I kept up with our new tradition of homemade pizza for Friday night supper. This one looks more like pac man than appetizing, but do not be decieved. The pesto corner was delicious and Matt loved the chicken topping.
Saturday was another unexpected fun time event... free tickets to the Washington Nationals baseball game. Matt, Hillary, Jeremy, his sister Megan and I took the metro out the the ballpark and sat through the rain to watch them lose. Sounds fun, right? It really was :)
That evening our pal Tanner got into town and we had a delightful visit with him over dinner at Gordon Biersch. And of course Menchie's to top it off.
Sunday consisted of the usual church routine, followed by lunch with friends, then home to lounge on the couch where we watched a pretty fascinating documentary on Woodstock.
Monday, glorious Memorial Day Monday kicked off with breakfast at the diner. Then came the first round of being overwhelmed by paint samples at Home Depot. Arg. Better luck next time. Moving on...
We had dinner here that eveing with Aaron, Angela, Pierce and Harrison. Crab legs, chicken, veggies and fruit. Followed by a casual and colorful game of Skittle chip poker and a movie. Good times!
