In mid-June, Lynsey & Colleen drove up from NC, arriving just in time to hop back in the Subaru with me and pick Jessica up from her cross-country trip!! The next morning, Jessica surprised Reagan (who had no idea she was here!) and we took her to school for the day. Child-free on a Friday, we took full advantage, relaxing at home for a couple hours and then going to get our nails done. After our mani/pedis, we drove into Old Town and grabbed lunch at the Columbia Firehouse...one of our favorite spots. Then we hopped back in the car and went to pick up Reagan who was REALLY SURPRISED to see that Colleen & Lynsey had joined the gang!
That afternoon, we just lounged around and waited for Jason to get home from work. While we waited, the girls gave Reagan a bath...
That night, we headed back into Old Town, stopped for pictures near the waterfront and then walked to Landini Brothers for a drink...we ended up staying for dinner. Everything was delicious, especially Colleen's shrimp scampi - all 5 of them:)
On Saturday morning, we had good intentions of getting out of the house early and doing some sightseeing or paddle boating. That quickly evaporated when Jason offered to make breakfast for us! He's the best! After feeding us AND cleaning up, Jason took Reagan out for a Daddy/Daughter afternoon. We girls drove into DC and went to check out Eastern Market (another fav!). We all got scarves and I think everyone found something else for themselves (or kiddos). It was a great time, but it was HOT!
We drove home for a little rest before dinner, got a "HURRY UP" phone call from Jason, and headed to Gary Mike's for cocktails, dinner and corn hole!
We ate some delicious ribs, coleslaw, corn on the cob, and potato salad...which is what these three were polishing off straight from the container:)
As it started to get dark, we helped Reagan catch fireflies and put them in a jar.
And we asked Michael to take a picture of the four of us - it did not go so well...
We are so lucky to have each other! Though it was intended to be a girls' weekend, no one gave me grief about having Reagan around, instead, everyone took turns entertaining her. All in all it was a fabulous weekend and I, for one, can't wait to do it again next year when I can have some cocktails too!
