"I have told you this so that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete." John 15:11

Last Thursday was Andy's last day of paternity leave so I decided he should take me out to lunch!  We went to a local restaurant that is a replica of a Colonial Williamsburg's Raleigh Tavern.  It seems random, but it totally fits in our little community's Village Green and they serve great food!  We've been there for dinner before, but never for lunch.  Normally we could walk there, but we were having downpours that day, so we drove.  It was our first time at a sit-down restaurant with the little guy and he did great.  For dessert we had an Irish Foggy - brownie sundae with Baileys poured on top - nothing wrong with a little Bailey's mid-afternoon, right?

On Saturday we met our friend Dany from college down in DC for lunch.  He was in town for the day bringing students to a museum.  We were planning to meet at Fuddruckers in China Town. Yes, you read that right, Fuddruckers in China Town. DC's interpretation of China Town is a bit different then New York or San Francisco.  It consists of putting up a really cool Chinese Friendship arch:

then opening up a bunch of American restaurants and shops and writing their names in both English and Chinese:

To be fair, there are some Chinese restaurants tucked away in China Town, but we've never been to any of them!

Due to a rally in DC on Saturday, Fuddruckers was packed (apparently "progressives" like burgers and fries), so we went to Potbelly for sandwiches.  We only had about an hour with Dany, but it was great to catch up with him after not seeing each other for over a year.  We didn't get any pics with Dany, but I did get one of Andy with the baby after lunch:

Here a pic especially for GREAT Aunt Theresa:

Thanks for the Bumbo - we pulled it out for the first time last week. 

Have a great weekend!
