Local Weekend

After a fast paced NYC weekend, we were happy to stay around town this weekend. We did brunch at Founding Farmers (thanks Jen & Robert!!) 
I had a Pimms cup and carrot cake pancakes...(mouth waters) and Barrett had steak and eggs.
On Sunday, after Mass, we had a shopping excursion south of DC. Bernadette's reward for her patience was a visit to the Shirlington Dog Park. She loved it! She was like a kid on the first day of school: really excited but a little scared, too. 

And I scored these elf-ish Nordic houseshoes from Ikea! 

All in all, a great weekend was had by all.

Katz's Deli

As seen on "When Harry Met Sally" and one of the things I wanted to do while on NYC. It did not disappoint.
Pickles: full sour, half sour
Barretts slow cooked brisket sandwich 
Bob & K split a Reuben 
And I had the pastrami! Pa-stra-ME!!

Not really like the movie, though we witnessed several Salvation Army ringers who brought microphones and were convincing everyone to sing Frozen tunes! It was a successful fundraising approach.
We didn't skate, but we were there. Tree was still under construction, but was very impressive.
We enjoyed Union Station and K tied a ribbon on the holiday memorial. I shopped for the perfect hat, but it eluded me. The Titans beanie will just have to do a while longer! :)

Exciting first night in NYC

Barrett (and Bob) had a scrumptious burger at Scarlotta, it had chunks of brisket in it!!

We went to see the Rockettes and Santa at the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular. Super awesome!!

And Bob captured us on the big screen in Timea Square, that's Barrett waving next to the "t" in tkts

Inbound journey

Packed up all our business attire...

And the red head with her toys...
Tried to keep smiling...
And made sure to catch the Blue Ridge sunrise on Sunday morning...we made it!
