Ice Skating in downtown Washington D.C.

Saturday was a packed day! First, Joe and I took a 2-hour drive into the middle of Virginia to conduct a home visit for IG Rescue. The house was out in the middle of nowhere and was owned by two retired intelligence officers who wanted to start volunteering for us. They had two Italian Greyhounds of their own, and they turned out to be great people! Their house was built around an original 1700's cabin and they had tons of stories to tell about its history. Really amazing.

Then, we drove home, walked the dogs, and hopped on the metro to meet Stuart at his place for dinner. Stuart cooked us veggie burgers and tater tots, and after we stuffed ourselves, we headed downtown for ice skating! I haven't ice skated since my teens, and Joe had never been on skates, so it was an adventure! We had so much fun, though!

This picture is my favorite - Stuart took a picture right when Joe was about to fall and I was holding him up. The expressions on our faces are priceless!

It was definitely great exercise as well as a ton of fun!

That was the big adventure for the weekend. The rest of the weekend was spent recovering (I slept in until 11:00 on Sunday) and resting up for the work week.
