Adventuring in Virginia: Part Three

Our main purpose for the trip to Virginia had been to spend some time with our grandchildren and celebrate their upcoming birthdays. Nate turns 8 and Aberdeen will be 6. Both of them seem to me to be pretty mature for their ages. We had a wonderful time with them, and enjoyed helping them pick out pets: a pair of Beta fish (in separate accommodations, of course). Dinner at a fine place called the Shaved Duck, a bewildering name if I ever heard one, but delicious food and high tolerance for little people. We also made a stop at Quilter's Corner where, once again, I did my bit for the local economy.

After breakfast we left pretty promptly because we were expected in Alexandria before noon. We had a lovely time there, too, with Eli and Miles and their parents. The drive home wasn't arduous. Such a lovely long weekend we'd had!

Wonderful fabrics and even better family time. Nice to the max!

April is our birthday month, too, and my baby boy is 34 years old today. Amazing. DH and I will be another year older before the end of the month, too.

Will have to go to the Shaved Duck as it sounds interesting. Yesterday we had lunch at Crab Louie's Seafood Tavern, just around the parking lot from Quilter's Corner. Yum!

You have picked up some great fabric the past few days! That's how I'll start thinking of it... supporting the local economy! It is lovely to find some unusual fabric as so much is the same in every store.
