Weekending in Virginia

This weekend we did a whirlwind tour of Virginia to see some pretty awesome people.  Friday after work we cleaned the house, had dinner, and tried to avoid traffic on the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel, but who are we kidding on trying to avoid that.  It's inevitable that you will hit traffic there.  Luckily there are about 25 movies on D.J's list for me to watch so we popped in a movie in the car and we made it up to The Brown's house in no time.  We watched The Other Woman and Draft Day (both were great!!) and pulled in the  driveway in the in-laws house around 9:30 p.m.

Saturday morning we got up around 8:30 and had some healthy breakfast before running over to my sister and brother in-laws house.  Now that they moved into the neighborhood it's only about 1.5 miles away and right by the soccer fields that Jayden, my nephew was playing on.  Thank goodness for D.J. running with Stryker because he isn't the best on the leash and D.J. was a trooper and held Stryker while I ran ahead of them.


Jayden's soccer game was too cute.  Watching 3, 4, and 5 year olds "play soccer" is so hilarious.  Wherever the ball moves, they move.  Goals are being scored by both teams in both goals.  Kids are running off the field to their parents because the rain is getting them wet.  It was beyond hilarious, but the most precious thing ever! We left about halfway thru to go back and take a shower before driving to Mananas for the Fitz/McVicar wedding!

We arrived at the church around 1 p.m. for the 1:30 wedding.  It was nasty outside.  Not torrential downpour, but enough to use an umbrella.  The mass was beautiful.  A full Catholic Mass with a great singer and priest that was pretty funny.  The flowers were stunning, the bridesmaids dresses were beautiful and Stephanie looked like a million bucks.  A full post on the wedding will be on the blog later this week!

Between the ceremony and the reception we checked into the hotel, had a glass of wine, and chatted with some friends in the lobby before calling a cab.  The venue was to die for.  An old mansion that overlooked rolling hills and a beautiful piece of property.  The wedding took place in the renovated barn and covered tent.  Every little detail was thought out and displayed perfectly. The night was one to never forget!

Sunday morning we grabbed some Panera and headed back to the Brown's house to watch the Redskins play.  Perfect way to end the weekend.  Baby Bryce fell asleep in my arm while I napped, we had crabs, and spent the day enjoying our family!

Hope everyone has a fabulous week!!!
