Weekend Wrap-up

On Friday afternoon, I drove to Tysons for a surprise baby shower that Rebecca's coworkers had planned and thrown for her under the guise of a going away party for another coworker. This was not unlike the time Rebecca's friends had her make her own birthday cake for a surprise birthday party in 2008.

We took it easy on Saturday because of the rain -- Rebecca made it to the Reston Farmer's Market with her dad in between showers while I weeded 50% of the plant boxes and did various low priority home repairs. In the evening, we had dinner at Cafesano which boasted decent pita, comparable kabobs to every other kabob place in the world, and $3.50 craft beers. Afterwards, we took a late nature walk around Claude Moore and watched Moana.

On Sunday afternoon we went out to Taylorstown for yet another baby shower, this time with Rebecca's mom's side of the family. In the evening, I let Rebecca try the new Google Earth VR, which lets you fly around exotic and familiar locales with ease. It's pretty fun to revisit places we saw on our vacations or even visit our own Sterling neighbourhood -- although the street-level view is not yet high resolution, the area is rendered in just enough 3D to make it completely clear where you are.

How was your weekend?
