Celeste and I spent the weekend in Williamsburg, VA with our very good friends the Figuracions. It was their 14th wedding anniversary and they asked us to spend it with them, which we were honored to do. We had lots of fun and it really came at a good time since we really seemed to need the break from our routine. On the left, the four of us in the condo we stayed in over the weekend. Bobby and I were roommates in college and the fact that he would remain my friend after that says all you need to know about the man.
We spent a lot of time this weekend talking about our kids, or should I say commiserating with each other about living with kids, and it occurred to me at some point that we are very lucky to have friends who have literally been there through everything: wedding, kids, moves, job changes, etc. Hard to believe they've already been married 14 years or that it's been over 20 years since Bobby and I roomed together at George Mason U.
We spent the majority of the weekend puttering around the Pottery Factory, browsing the aisles of the Christmas Mouse and picking through the selections at the General Store. To the left is a pic from the Pottery Factory; only there would you find a 'Hardware, Wine & Cheese' store.
Much thanks to our friends the Campbells for letting the kids stay with them for the weekend and shuttling them back and forth to take care of the pets. That's some serious duty that we really appreciate. Then they topped it off by feeding us dinner last night when we came over to pick up the kids. We had a couple of hours to sit around and catch up and honestly that's about as good as it gets. A great weekend all the way around.
