Sleeping in... together?


This past weekend our good friends Christina & Phil got married in Washington D.C. With some help from grandma and grandpa (gma babysat and gpa lent his car...) Jon and I were able to leave the baby and drive down to the wedding. It was a quick trip. We left late Friday afternoon, went to the wedding ceremony and part of the reception on Saturday afternoon and then drove home Saturday night. But we had such a great time together. We stayed at the Westin Grand hotel in D.C. and were able to actually sleep in together on Saturday morning. (there was no paper, rock, scissors game to see who would wake up with Noah... it was awesome!) We woke up around 11am and had brunch at a cute german cafe called Bread and Chocolate. The wedding was beautiful. They got married at the Georgetown Chapel on the campus of Georgetown University (apparently an East Coast tradition... who knew?) where they had originally met 9 years ago as freshman there.

Jon was able to catch up with some old med school buddies and swap internship stories -- my favorite was the one where they played a guessing game of how much weight they had all lost in the past year. Jon won hands down with a whopping 15 pounds... sad! (it was the only way he could have fit into that suit... it was the one he wore on our wedding day almost 6 years ago!)

Anyway, it was a great weekend and the weather couldn't have been more perfect for a wedding. 72 degrees and sunny.

Thanks again mom and dad for helping us out!

*(note the matchy-match tie... a BR bargain -- only $12.49)
I was so worried that someone else would have the same dress as me... luckily it didn't happen to me, but there were 2 other duplicate dresses there. oops!
