Memorial Day Weekend
Ash and I had a rather eventful weekend and enjoyed the lovely weather. On Friday night we met Chantal, Chris, and Mom at "Sunflower" in Vienna for dinner. If you haven't been there, I highly suggest you try it out. Personally, I advise that you get General Tso's Tofu your first time there. I forgot what I ordered, but it was delicious. I think it was the "Sunflower Surprise." And if you love Mushrooms, they have a fantastic "Mushroom Palate" dish which is unbelivable. Sometimes I think I'm going to turn into a mushroom, that's how often I eat them.
So since Chris and Chantal were up in Maryland for a wedding the entire weekend, they were kind enough to let me borrow their Wii Fit and a couple of other games. First off, the Wii fit is hilarious. I was pretty sore on Saturday after doing a few of the workouts. It's funny as hell. What a great concept that system is as a whole. First you weigh in, then it calculates your BMI and assigns you a category. I was assigned overweight, which I guess isn't much of a surprise. Then you workout doing a variety of exercises. Aerobic, Strength, Yoga, and Athletics are your choices.
Saturday morning I took a few pics of the dogs and planted my Tomatoes.
Fortunately, the keg was empty. Here's Sam being photogenic and Lo's on the lookout post:
On Sunday we had a wedding and helped out our family friend Karly take some photos before the reception. I'm not going to post any of those though because we took like 300 photos and still need to go through them all. The light was awesome, and here's an awesome one with my Ash at Green Springs Garden and then the both of us at the reception.
And finally, before the wedding I began what I'm calling "Creek Cleanup." Since the dogs and I are down there every day that the weather permits, I decided it was time to start picking up trash. What really made me notice the amount of it down there was when we had 6 inches of rain a couple of weeks ago. The amount of glass(broken shards) it pushed up to the path was unbelievable, and obviously we can't have Sam & Lola splitting open their paws on that stuff. Anyway, I collected a black bag full of glass, plastic, and.......well, trash. All in all, there were 39 bottles and cans, a flower pot, the blade of a plastic hockey stick, and all sorts of other junk. They've been placed in recycling.
The coolest find was this Lipton can! I have no clue how old it was, but it was one of the peel back tops.
