It was snowing pretty good in the Washington area on Thursday afternoon when we arrived. It was a perfect afternoon and evening for a fire. Jeff built a great one. It was still pretty icy Thursday night so Adam waited until Friday to come out to Fairfax Station. He showed me some cool features on the iPhone and was a good sport for a photo with his folks.
On Saturday, we went to the Virginia Kitchen for breakfast with Intae and Lollie. They have lived in the Herndon area for years and we have been friends since the 1980's when we were stationed together in Hawaii. It was great to see them.
In the afternoon, we went to Caleb's basketball game. That was fun to see and it brought back a lot of memories.
That evening we went to Mclean Bible Church for the Saturday night service. We took a different route and hit I-495 traffic. Bad mistake. We ran into construction choke points and holiday shoppers backing up traffic getting into the Tyson's Corner area. (How quickly we forget.) We were 30+ minutes late and arrived in time for the sermon.
We finished off the evening with a bowl of soup at Panera's and it really hit the spot! I love their chili and cornbread!
Today we drove back to our campground and were pleased to find everything in order. Despite the low temperatures we had no accidents or freezing pipes so we were very glad about that.
I hope you have a great week and we appreciate you stopping by to check out the Roadrunner Chronicles! Merry Christmas and I hope it is warm where you are!
