It was time for a weekend in Georgetown. My grandfather was celebrating a birthday and the family flew in from all over to stay at my aunt’s in Vienna, VA, the Washington DC area. It had probably been about a decade since we had a reunion like this, all of us together. The third generation already in their 20’s, when what seemed like only a few years ago we were only in our teens. There were drinks shared, laughs, food, and photo album fishing, reminiscing about the old times like we were old timers ourselves.
It was fun having us all together in a new light yet in the same humor.
We celebrated at the family favorite “Sushi Yama” in Vienna. Poor Lolo was a bit of a grump at the start of our dinner, yet I guess that can be expected in the birthdays of your senior years.
We decided to dedicate a day to a walk around Georgetown, a quaint trendy area in DC. Our lunch started out at the infamous French chain “Paul.” We delighted ourselves in perfectly portioned sandwhiches, quinoa salmon salad and macaroons for desert.
Our experiences in the neighborhood were mainly our indulgences in the food and spirits. Our first stop was at “Thunder” for drinks. We then hopped over a few shops down for ice cream. That stop was soon followed by Starbucks and then topped off with the infamous cupcake bakery Sprinkles. Hmm sounds like the trip of a group of children at Wonka’s factory. Nope, just a group of 20 somethings enjoying what Georgetown had to offer. My diet was shoved to the back seat. All in all it was an enjoyable trip too quick with great company.
What did I step out in for this lovely weekend stroll?
