FedEx Field or Bust

Brad & Brian in the Honeywagon

We had a blast on our Adults Only Road Trip this past weekend.  Brian, Molly, Brad and I piled into the Honeywagon (hopefully its last hur-rah before the Highlander joins the family) Saturday late morning and arrived in Tyson's Corner mid-day, just in time to enjoy a delicious lunch at Coastal Flats, if you live in the Northern Virginia area and haven't tried it, you are missing out on a fantastic addition to the Great American Family of restaurants. Hold onto your seats, listen to what I dined on: Blue Crab & Rock Shrimp Fritters, Crab Imperial Dip, Chop House Salad, Grouper Fingers and who could forget the delicious breads from Best Buns Bakery! I could barely move after that meal, I didn't eat again until midnight.

We checked into our hotel in Crystal City, changed and hiked to the Metro, took the Metro from Crystal City to Morgan Blvd (FedEx Field, home of the Redskins) just in time to see Uncle Kracker belt out a few tunes.  Billy Currington followed him and was A-dorable with a capital A.  I had no idea how many Billy Currington songs I knew and loved, it was a nice surprise and did I mention that he is a fox? Zac Brown Band was a hit with the crowd and frankly the reason we made the trip, they jammed out a bit too much for me, but made up for it with their last two songs: America the Beautiful and Chicken Fried, the entire stadium was on their feet, it was quite a sight.  And of course the main attraction was Kenny Chesney, who never disappoints, he is a fabulous entertainer.  I have seen him in concert a few times before and I have always walked away liking him more than I did the hour before seeing him live.

Brad, Allison, Austin & I at their new house

It was great to spend some time with Brian and Molly sans children, we see them all the time, but always with our little ones, so this was a nice change.  Sunday involved us having brunch with respective friends (Us with Allison & Austin, and Molly and Brian with her cousin) and then meeting back up for the trek back to Richmond, which was a long one, we didn't even get to stop at Ikea like we had hoped, traffic ruined that for us.

The happy couple in front of their new home

Arriving home to two smiling children and a very excited dog is always a great feeling, we missed them and were happy to be home where we belong, with our two little bundles.
