I made reservations at a restaurant called Grafiatto which is owned by a previous Top Chef contestent. It gets rave reviews and seemed like it would be fun to boot. Unfortunately the earliest reservation I could get was for 8:45 pm…living like Rock Stars! So we had the evening to walk around town and grab a glass of wine. We were pretty close to the new Verizon Center where the Washington Wizards and Capitals play. It\’s right in the heart of what used to be Chinatown. There are still some signs of the old Chinatown but it\’s quickly being gobbled up. We had a great dinner and saw the chef Mike Isabella. Sunday morning we were able to get in a quick trip to the Spy Museum and lunch at a modern dim sum restaurant. Then back to MD.
Sunday night we had dinner at mom\’s house with all of Pam\’s family. Quinn was very happy to see his cousins Alex and Ben. It\’s cake time….raise your hand if you want cake.
And then on to presents!! It was a pirate puppet from the Newman Family. You can only imagine the fun Don was having with the puppet.
And a ball pit from Grams! What a lucky little boy!
A great way to spend our Columbus Day Weekend!!!
