date night with friends.

we had a little double date last week with our friends julie and eli. first, we made a stop by krispy kreme because, well, when you see the “hot donuts now” light flashing in the window, you cannot just drive on by. at least we can’t… then, after our donut fix, we went bowling.

we teamed up boys against girls and yes, the ladies totally won!
(thanks to julie. i have to be the worst bowler ever.)

the boys were sad because this means they now have to cook us dinner…
japanese curry, to be exact.

ah, can’t wait for curry night!

giving thanks.

we spent most of thursday and friday out in virginia where a few of josh’s aunts and uncles and cousins and their families live. it was so fun being around so many little children (and a new 3 week old baby!)
on friday, josh’s aunt organized a little surprise family baby shower for allison (josh’s cousin who just had the cutest baby boy a few weeks ago) and me which was so sweet and thoughtful. we have a lot to be thankful for this year… hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving!

happy happy happy weekend!

our little family of 3 1/2 took a walk over to eastern market this morning
