JulyOur friends Connor and Mariel joined us for a fun filled 4th of July weekend and per usual we had a blast with them.We all joined Neil and Elise for a fireworks party at their apartment. They have an incredible view of DC and the fireworks over the national mall did not disappoint!We traveled to Indianapolis for the wedding of my SIL Katie. We managed to do some sightseeing with our moms between the wedding festivities
It was so much fun to get together with VABeau's family for another big party! Katie was such a beautiful bride.
My parents even made the trip to Indiana for her wedding making the weekend a true family affair!
We kicked off VABeau's 27th Birthday week with the Dave Matthews Band/Zac Brown Band concert at Nationals Stadium. The concert was fantastic but the heat and humidity that night was beyond oppressive.
We had a great time in Charlottesville despite 2 flat tires that we got while wine tasting Sunday. We definitely made the best of the situation with drinks with Kristin and Ryan while my tires were replaced.
and cheesecake! Obviously this was my first attempt at cheesecake. It tasted great but was not the most attractive dessert.
The food was delicious and the location was gorgeousWe spent a week in Hilton Head and it was our best trip there yet! This sunset cruise was definitely the highlight.The Island Winery was pretty great too
VABeau became my hero when he booked this cute inn in Greenville, NC to break up our drive from HHI
and could not resist the Middleburg wineries after our morning at the orchard Ran a race that took place right outside of our aparment
and completed my 4th race (2nd 10k) of the yearwe celebrated with friends at Clarendon Day, our neighborhood's annual street festival
Kathryn's wedding was beyond beautiful and she was a stunning bride
VABeau's brother and our SIL, CAWife, joined us in Vegas before driving us to their home in California
