We rented a car.
We used Turo, which I had used in NC. It’s basically an airbnb of car rentals — and they have an option where the owner will deliver the car to you! We got an 8-seat Chevrolet Traverse which was great for our group size.
Our missions for the day: Mount Vernon + the Erin Condren store!!!! We headed out and stopped for brunch at the Silver Diner.
This visit exceeded expectations! Gorgeous grounds, interesting exhibits, and just an all around fun experience. We were there nearly 4 hrs!
I’ve wanted to visit the brick & mortar EC for sooooo long! I think I included it in an itinerary that never happened in 2020. But we finally made it!
Then we wrapped it up with Four Sisters for dinner (again – rec from you all, thank you!!!). Awesome dinner.S
Had to document this moment when we found A’s lost bag at Jaleo!! This was particularly exciting because I called and was told “I don’t see it” but we went in person because the person on the phone didn’t sound like she actually stopped to look . . . (not sure why, but I guess intuition is powerful). We decided to go by, and they had it right at the front!!!
A was overjoyed. Obviously I was too.
We celebrated with Sprinkles cupcakes. (Also all 3 kids had a bathroom emergency in Georgetown where there are basically no public bathrooms, but we survived!).
(Nope, not Passover-friendly but we do not follow the rules anyway! We were sad to miss the seder @ Josh’s parents’ house this year but at least we were having fun with family.)
