Weekend Happiness

An exciting and super fun three-day weekend is coming to a close here in Washington, DC. We did not take part in the Inauguration festivities, but they afforded us some extra time together as a family. Since the Capitol was closed to visitors all weekend and I chose not to work at the Inauguration today, we had an unprecedented three consecutive days to hang out and do “regular” things. I can’t tell you how thrilled we were to be strolling down the aisles of Lowes on Saturday morning. If we could’ve had weekends with more than one day together the past two years, there’s no telling what we could’ve accomplished on our home over the past two years. More about our DIY adventures soon, but here’s a hint:



We had a fantastic afternoon on Sunday to celebrate Shane’s birthday. By his request, we headed for Capitol Hill to a local game store, Labyrinth to pick out a birthday gift. We ended up with this game. Oh my gosh! We’ve been having so much fun playing this game! We took it out of the package while we waited for our dinner at We the Pizza and we’ve been playing it nonstop since.



We capped off our evening with milkshakes at Good Stuff Eatery. To our surprise, they now offer a free milkshake on your birthday! We even played one more round of Guillotine once we got home.



I’m not really quite sure how to put into words exactly how much fun the three of us had yesterday, but it was a really great day!

We wrapped up our weekend quite nicely today by hanging out in our pajamas with pancakes for breakfast while we watched the Inauguration on tv. Shane and I were able to participate in the historic inauguration four years ago, but this year we were more than happy to watch from our family room while we played with our son.

What did you all do with your long weekend?
