Yesterday, there was an early birthday party for Benjaman, one of Andy's oldest friends. Sadly, it was also something of a farewell party, as Benjaman and his family move away for a two-year temporary move.
Andy is sad to see Benjaman go (we all are) but there was lots of excitement yesterday about what to see and do during their two months in the DC metro area. Talking about all the museums and zoo made me miss Northern Virginia -- for just a moment or two.
We finished up our day at a friend's farm (forgot to take pictures), grilling burgers outdoors at dusk, and a small bonfire for the kids. Often more smoke than fire -- but with laughing, chasing, dancing kids, Chris playing guitar in the background and cool air, it was a wonderful evening.
