my dear friend meg, from new york city, spent the last few days with us in d.c.
on monday evening we all headed down to the waterfront for some seafood.
we bought a half dozen crabs and enjoyed them on the dock.
josh kindly cracked the crab shells for us and helped us find the meat.
he is such a good husband. i hate those stupid shells.
(he also took all these pictures. but refused his picture to be taken.)
thanks so much for stopping by d.c. meg!
you are most certainly one of our favorite people. we LOVE you.

  8. I married a Maryland native, and he's been crab picking (they call it?) since infancy. I, however, need a tutorial every time his parents host a crab feast, and I'm always the slowest one. It's supremely embarrassing. Good thing you had help!

  31. love these photos! you're darling.

  32. love your blog! found it through a friend and have to say it makes me miss DC! I have visited often in the past few years but just love my mountains here in Utah too much to move :)

  33. looks like you girls are having a blast! love that miss meg.

    i always have trouble with those crab shells too… so much work for such little reward!

  34. You know, I've never even tried crab in the whole form before. But just the pieces of it I've had kind of grossed me out with their consistency. Maybe I should try some fresh, east coast crab.

  35. Riley

    Oh that sounds delicious I haven't had crab in forever!

  36. So fun! You rockstars and your pals are too stinkin' cute.
