Last night at around 5:30pm three of "the girls" and I returned to Rochester after our girl's weekend in Washington, DC. The weekend, our ninth annual, was a blast! Here are the deets...

We finally arrived at the hotel (after dropping some goodies off to Mom Shiao) at around 7pm and promptly headed down to happy hour, which featured FREE DRINKS. You heard me right. I think it was mostly free wine and beer but, hey, it was just what we needed after being in the car for 10 hours. After drinks we walked down to one of my and Sue's fave restaurants, The Austin Grill, for a little dinner and collapsed afterward to get up at 5am to arrive at the WHITE HOUSE (!) by 7:15 in time for our 7:30 tour.

It was another really fun weekend of laughter and a chance to unwind. We are all so fortunate that we are able to leave our troubles behind for a couple of days each year and spend some (drama free) time together. I love "my girls" and am so blessed to have them in my life!
