Weekend Highlights

We had perfect fall weather in D.C. this past weekend, delightfully sunny and in the 70s, and we took full advantage of it by spending lots of time outdoors running, biking, barbecuing and relaxing under the stars.

Over the weekend we also headed to Annapolis, one of our favorite places to visit, for the city’s annual Fall Festival, a small street festival in the heart of the historic downtown.

After spending a few hours walking through the festival and antique shops we made our way over to St. Johns College campus for a picnic overlooking College Creek. We sat on a bench soaking up the sun and dined on Nick’s homemade chicken salad.

We ended our afternoon with a game of frisbee – Nick may have finally taught me how to throw one correctly – before racing home to catch the start of the Packer game.

It was definitely a great fall weekend, and I really hope we can squeeze in a few more just like it before the cold weather finally hits. It was also nice that we could cross a few more items off of our fall bucket list!

2012 Fall Bucket List: 

  • Attend a fall festival or Oktoberfest (Annapolis Fall Festival)
  • Carve a pumpkin and roast the seeds
  • Go on a fall picnic
  • Roast s’mores in the fireplace
  • Bake pumpkin bread
  • Go on a hike and enjoy nature
  • Try a new hearty soup or fall recipe
  • Drink apple cider
  • Go camping
  • Run the Turkey Trot 5/10-mile
  • Drink a pumpkin beer (Starr Hill Boxcar Pumpkin Porter)
  • Create a fall mantel

P.S. We came across this hysterical bicycle-lawn mower over the weekend and I had to hold Nick back from taking it for a spin!
