Washington, DC

We went to Washington, DC the weekend before last. We took a lovely stroll in the sculpture garden at the National Gallery of Art. Then we saw the Edward Hopper exhibit, which was amazing, but super crowded.

After we took in our fill of modern art, we got back on the Metro and went to Georgetown. Wow. That place is crazy. I have never seen so many rich teenage Paris Hilton wanabee girls. There are great stores and good food, but the place is full of jerks. Towards the end of the night, we stopped at a bar which claimed to be "the friendliest bar in Georgetown" on its sign. Well, the roaches were friendly, anyway.


So, last weekend we took a day trip to Pittsburgh, PA. "Why?" you might ask. Well, it's this little thing called Flight Club. This is a club started by Dan Klos, a guy we work with. This was the third day trip Flight Club has taken. Check out the site for Dan's commentary about the day. Also, pictures are uploaded to Shutterfly (you may need to refresh the site to get it to work). Feel free to check out the 240+ pics.


For Halloween, we went as a 70's couple. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of us together, but here's one of Nick. He's sitting by the fog machine, but we think it looks appropriate with his costume. :) You can see a glimpse of my super awesome polyester jumpsuit in this photo.

I also made super scary finger cookies for work. Don't worry, the "blood" is chocolate syrup & food coloring.

A couple of weeks before Halloween, we drove out to the country and took a hayride out to the pumpkin patch.

I didn't do a pumpkin this year, and Nick did his really quick.

Just because, here are our pumpkins from last year.
