Currently I am sitting at a Red Roof Inn in a little town in Ohio called Holland. We have successfully completed the first leg of our cross-country trip. We drove about 8 hours today, and arrived around 8:00 p.m. We got a little bit of a late start this morning, since we had some re-packing and cleaning up to do after our fun last night in Washington D.C.
Yesterday was a great day. Stuart took the day off work to hang out with us. My friend Laura also took the day off, so I headed out to pick her and her boyfriend up in Maryland while Joe and Stuart played video games.
Note to all of you - don't try to drive anywhere in D.C. on a work day. It took me forever to get up there, and then after having lunch and stopping by my old work to say hello to my friends there, it took forever to get back to Stuart's. Luckily, we made it in time to have some drinks and head out to dinner. :)
Laura, Trey, Stuart, Me, and Joe in Chinatown
Stuart's 96 oz beer at dinner. Crazy, right?
Drinks in downtown D.C.
Stuart put chopsticks in my hair. They were my 'weapons' for the night.
My friend Claudia came and met us out after work!
Laura and Trey (her boyfriend, the rock star)
Trey's 'scary rocker' look.
Trey said, "I'm not a rock star, THIS guy is!"
Since we were being papparazzi, I had to have my picture taken as well.
I was so happy to be able to spend my last night in D.C. with all my friends. It was really a ton of fun, even though we totally got lost at one point.
