Of course a visit to Washington must include spending time with our friends the Specktaculars. Mrs. S picked us up from the airport and took us to get our rental car. We all met for dinner one evening before Eric returned home. One Saturday Mrs. S and I went on a girl date to dinner and to see a local performance of "My Fair Lady" which was SO fun! And then a couple of days later she and her girls met us at a park near Pops and Lela -- after playtime we went back to Pops and Lela's house where Mr. S joined us for dinner. It was as if the little girls picked up right where they left off when the Specktaculars visited us last year.
