Weekend Wrap-up

Although the first half of the weekend was buried under the weight of proposal work, I did manage to tear away in time to salvage it. On Saturday night, we went over to Joe & Katie's for gender-segregated gathering where all of the women were knitting, sewing, and scrapbooking, while all of the men were playing frisbee, grilling chicken, and playing video games.

On Sunday morning, we drove out to Sky Meadows State Park for a hike described on some online sites as "hiking through the Alps but in Virginia". Virginia State Parks is really on their game with trail maintenance and signage, with accurate mileage markings and enough trail benches satisfy the Eagle Scout requirements for an entire troop of Boy Scouts. I hiked until about the 10 mile marker, while Rebecca was slightly harder-corer and did another circuit up a steep hill, bringing her to 11.75 miles.

In the evening, we had dinner at American Tap Room in Reston Town Center with Returned Mike and Annie. As an apropos appetizer, we had the steak and cheese egg rolls, which could easily be the most American mashup you could make. For dinner I tried, for the first time, fried chicken and waffles. I remain unconvinced that this is a necessary food pairing.

How was your weekend?
