just another great Saturday.
Today we went the the final game of our new ward's basketball team. These YM are just amazing. They played against our ward that we have been in, so for a minute we were a little torn, but sat on the side of our new guys and cheered them on. Annie Kate sat on the stage and kept chanting, "D.C. 3rd" We had a lot of people from our ward cheering these guys on, not one of their parents were there and the other side was packed. We wanted so bad for them to win but they didn't.
Afterwards we went to lunch with all of them in Silver Spring to Chipolte Grill. The out going missionary couple took the whole team and anyone who came, out to lunch. They said it was their final goodbye. It was so fun. Annie Kate just loves these guys.
It was a part of town I had not been to but loved it. Some brilliant men redid the entire neighborhood and has given it true life. The sky was so blue, no photoshop here!
It was fun to see the AK give Caroline a piggy back ride down the street.
We went out to Theodore Roosevelt Island on the Potomac. Wow it was great and a National Park we had not been to yet. Anyone coming to visit add this to your must sees. This to me seems like to D.C. what Central Park is to N.Y.
I can't wait to go back in spring/pre summer time when it is green. I kept looking for Anne C. thinking she might be running by. It was just great to be outside and have the girls run around.
Jeff caught a photo of me in my awesome thrifted Willy Wonka glasses that I love!Annie Kate did a little dirt writing.
Afterwards we headed into Georgetown for a little ice cream search. We went to Dean & DeLuca hoping they had some. Have you been in there? oh my the food looked fake it looked so good. Some of the cheese was $15.00 a pound. Great place for cool cookie decorating items though.
We found some ice cream at the Georgetown Park Plaza. Look at how big little Sally Jane's was. What a great collection of goodness. there was every kind of store in there. I went into Anthropologie while the kids were eating and just was in creative heaven.
Just another day soaking up this wonderful historical place!
