Airplanes, Virgin Mojitos, & Obsessive Game Playing

Wow, it's already Thursday!  This week is flying by and I have no complaints about that.  Just wanted to pop in to share some pictures from our visit to Lee & Jess's (bro & sis-in-law) in Maryland last weekend.  We made it a three day weekend and had a blast!

On Friday, while Lee & Jess were working, Brett and I visited the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum.  This museum is out in Virginia near the Washington, DC airport.  This one is muuuch bigger than the Air and Space Museum in downtown DC and super cool!  It has an observatory tower that you can go up and watch planes coming into the airport next door.  It also is home to the Space Shuttle Discovery, which is gigantic and awesome!  We had a great time exploring this museum!

(25 weeks!  Starting to feel huge... haha)

After spending some time at the museum, we stopped at Lost Rhino Brewing Company for some beverages.  While I wish I could have been drinking beer, their house made root beer was pretty delicious!  We also ate some tasty nachos before heading back to Lee & Jess's for a fun game night!

On Saturday, the four of us made our way down to downtown DC for some exploring!  We checked out one museum, including a cool installment all about the American flag, and wandered around the National Mall a bit.  It was pretty chilly but at least the sun was shining!

And then we headed over to Chinatown for a deliiiicious Thai lunch,
including mojitos (virgin for me...)!

Saturday night consisted of more games!  We kind of became obsessed with a few games throughout the course of the weekend: Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Mario Party on Wii.  We are nerds, but had so much fun! Haha

And on Sunday, we said our goodbyes and made our way home.
Thanks for having us, Lee and Jess!
(Can't wait to see you guys at Thanksgiving!)

What a great little mini getaway!*
