Aunt Karen Visits

Karen came to visit this weekend and I hope she had a good time, we certainly did. We introduced her to Margaritas at Chipotle, Cake Love Cupcakes, a Pit Fire with Home Brewed Beer and Cornhole.

Friday we went out to Chipotle for dinner and found out they serve Margaritas now. Kate and Karen said they tasted like they were from a Slurpee machine instead of the broken-ice type.

On Saturday we awoke early and Kate and Karen went out to Starbucks and gabbed while Jack and I watched cartoons. Then we went to the mall to see if we could get our grubby hands on an iPad and see what the hub-bub is all about, but Apple didn't have any out for display yet, so we just perused the stores and grabbed some lunch. We went to the Redskins store and Karen got a Redskin shirt since they are so hard to find in Atlanta. We also stopped by the new CakeLove shop and met Warren Brown. I introduced myself as the guy who recorded his podcast with the Library a few weeks ago. He seems like a genuinely nice guy. We left with a few cupcakes cause they all looked so darn good ( and tasted great).

Making wishes with Aunt Karen

We took Jack home for his nap and Karen and Kate went out to look at stuff an shop in their mind (where you just buy stuff in your mind).

For dinner we went to Coastal Flats, but had to wait for a hour and had appetizers while waiting inside the bar. It was a beautiful evening and there were lots of people out and about.

Karen and I got the same hing for dinner, the lobster roll with Corn on the cobb and fries. They make a great lobster roll, well worth the wait.

When we came home, the next door neighbor, Eric, already had the pit fire up and the CornHole game out. Hos friend Tom had come up from Fauquier County and they were sipping the Fairchester Ale (Home brewed Beer).

I played a few games and lost handily to Tom, who is a CornHole demon. Jack liked "playing" and watched and picked up the Bean Bags when we threw them.

Sunday we got up and went to Starbucks again for a light breakfast and then it was off to Dulles to drop Karen off for her flight back.
