We've had a busy week here...Maribeth left this morning; it was great to have her here. We went to Seattle to see her lovely, sweet daughter, Taylor. We had dinner together, and watched a dance performance at the basketball game...
went to see the new movie, "He's Not That Into You" (I liked it, and I go to about 2 movies a year in a theater);
went out to dinner at the Burrata Bistro (Kim & Alfonso's new restaurant) with Angela & Bev:
where the atmosphere is wonderful,
and the food is even better! If you live in the area, I recommend it. Here is Alfonso, tending bar:
It was so good to sit on the couch with Maribeth, talking into the wee hours...to relax together, face to face, just like we used to do. I'm so thankful that she is able to come back to visit, and stay with us. We (including Latte) miss you already, MB!
David is having a good week in Washington, D.C. The group has been taking in many historic sights: Mt. Vernon, the National Cathedral, Arlington National Cemetery, The Supreme Court, The National Archives, The Smithsonian, The Washington Monument, the Capitol. There have been many text messages, a few phone calls and lots of photos taken. I can't wait to see him, and his photos! He sounds as if he is enjoying all of the sights he is seeing and what he is learning. He even saw President Obama, outside of Ford's Theater yesterday! Talk about living history. This evening was the beginning of the Model UN sessions. It will be fun to hear all about that.
