Catching up with Friends

Weekends aren't supposed to be all work, and every now and then we try to get it out of the way to finally enjoy time with friends. As everyone knows, life often gets in the way. This weekend, I (Rob) was determined to finally get together with friends that have been asking us for awhile! Jason and Kevin live in Washington, DC, and although we've had lunches or dinners- there's only so much you can do and say over a meal. So, this past weekend we met them in Washington, DC at the open-air Eastern Market (loaded with vendors that sell many things). The weather was perfect 75F and sunny. We got to eat a sandwich outside at a table with an umbrella, catch up on stuff, and enjoy walking around the market. I even found a bookstore and bougnt a novel about a dog (what a surprise...not). Although it was only for a couple of hours, it was a great change of pace and wonderful to catch up. Here are some pictures from that afternoon.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
