Many guests stayed at the Hyatt-House/Merrifield in the Mosaic District of Fairfax (VA); it was the perfect location. The rooms were efficient and high tech and the full breakfast downstairs each morning was well done. The hotel was in the same city block as a Target and a number of trendy restaurants (all within walking distance of a block or two).
On Wednesday evening, Pam and I joined Adam, Melissa, and her family at the True Food Restaurant, where we had a chance to meet Jeff and Marilyn again and spend some time together before things got busy. Melissa's brother, Rich, works and lives in DC and he came out to join us too. It was a great way to start off the wedding festivities.
Here's the only photo I got of Melissa's Aunts and Mom (with Uncle Mel and his daughter)
It rained a little throughout Friday... more like a steady drizzle. Saturday morning, the skies were a bit overcast, with some misty rain from Joaquin which was off shore.
Saturday morning, our Grandson Brooks made an appearance. Kelly and Jon were staying near friends Jeff and Tiffany who babysat him both Friday and Saturday nights. He wanted to see everybody, so Jon and Kelly brought him over to the Hyatt House on Saturday morning during breakfast.
After breakfast, we ran some errands and then met Marty & Elena, Brad & Sue, Reid & Amy, and Marg & Bill at the Red Apron for lunch.
We didn't have to be over to the wedding site until 4 PM.
Pam and I stayed in Reston at the Lake Fairfax Park Campground and were joined there by Marg and Bill who drove down from Ontario with their RV and had the campsite next to us.
This has turned into a really long post, so I am going to end it here and pick it up with my next post at the venue. More pictures and details to follow...
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
