Weekend Wrap-up

After a day of humid shed building, we met up with friends at the annual Taste of Reston festival, including Kathy, Carolyn, and Carolyn's fiance, Luke. The food was as good as usual, although there wasn't quite as much variety this year -- especially in the seafood category (crab doesn't count because crab is dumb). It did rain as tradition requires, and there was a Dave Matthews cover band headlining, which must have matched perfectly against the average age of the festival goers.

On Saturday, Rebecca hiked some 16 miles on the AT while my dad and I created a shed door. In the evening, Rebecca and I met up for an early birthday evening in Leesburg, for a trip to Crooked Run Brewery. We ate dinner at a little place called Cajun Experience, which felt much like walking onto a set of Treme, right down to the power going out briefly during the crazy monsoons. We ordered various Cajun seafoody dishes which tasted amazing, but the progression of our enjoyment followed this timeline:

On Sunday, we took a DC trip and met up with Sam, Kristen, Returned Mike, and Annie at District Commons for brunch. Then, 4 of 6 of us went to the Kennedy Center to see Book of Mormon. It was an enjoyable diversion and worth the trip (full review coming at a later date). A half hour Metro ride later, and we were back home eating tacos and washing months of sweat off of Rebecca's hiking pack (as well as cat puke off the bedspread).

Happy Birthday Rebecca (and Brianne!)
