Sunday evening, my best girlfriend took me out for a night on the town.
We went to the Mount Vernon Food and Wine Festival and Sunset tour. What a great time!
Mount Vernon, George Washington's estate, is about 15 miles from our house and occupies a really beautiful spot on the Potomac river. We go to Mount Vernon a few times every year because not only is it a nice place to visit, but because we are both history geeks.
When we go to Mount Vernon to spend a day or an evening, we usually have Olivia in tow, as she enjoys the place as much as we do. This sunday, however, was special. This time it was just the two of us with our lawn chairs, some bread, cheese, and wine, a beautiful view, and a pretty good blues band.
As we had a babysitter that had to go to school the next day, we only stayed from 6 to 8 P.M., but it was a lovely evening, just enjoying the music in one of my favorite places, with my favorite person.
We got home at 8:30 and had a nice quiet evening after a certain someone went to bed @ 9. ;)
