Stuttering Shell: FREDNECKSBURG

Sunday, March 29, 2009


Edited this post to add pictures!!

After driving through torrential down pours and crazy wind on Friday night, we finally made it to my parents' house in Fredericksburg - which I lovingly call Frednecksburg. This is the house that I moved into in the late 1990s after my sister graduated from high school and my mother finally moved so that our family was whole once again (a long story that included a retirement from the Navy, a job in NoVa and a family split by 200 miles for nearly 5 years). This is the same house I lived in after returning to school at Mary Washington College (granted, I lived in the dorms for one semester after I returned to school, but it was cheaper and just made sense to live at home after that). This is the same house that I came home to after giving birth to Malia in 2001. This is the same home that I finally left when Adam & I got married in 2002. I come back from time to time...not often enough according to my parents, but when they seem to be at my house all the time, well, you know why!

It's been a great weekend so far -- but we've got to head home today. I do have pictures to share and they will be uploaded once I return home. We've been busy...

We went to a home & garden show at the Fredericksburg Expo Center and I got to meet Vern Yip (the kids also got hopped up on sugar thanks to the ridiculous amount of candy being passed out...worse than Halloween...and the Fudgie Wudgie stand that sold the chocolate-covered strawberry kabobs).

Us - me, Malia & Mom - with Vern...sorta looks
like a family pic, doesn't it?! LOL

We got our drink on at the Fredericksburg Pub...hooray for the beer sampler! It's a newer restaurant that is located at the Spotsy Mall (that's Spotsylvania for those who don't know the county F'burg sits in)...well, not IN the mall, but out back in the new "village" area they are building (go figure that all of this is happening well AFTER I leave the area).

After coming home and dozing off, we decided NOT to head to Falls Church for a Peking duck dinner at Mark's Duck House and, instead, opted for some yummy Korean food at Choi's Korean Kitchen. Mmm...nom, nom, nom. I think I have some's not too early for some Jap Chae is it??

Aidan enjoying KimBob and Malia having some tempura shrimp

This is how we roll...

So, a trip to Bruster's didn't happen last night after dinner, but I'm hoping that we'll make we made it to Carl's at some point before we leave. I'm I also hoping to get got to see my friend, Becca, before we headed southbound on I-95 today. It's been a busy weekend...busy, but fun. Anytime spent with family is always fun and, if it's time spent with my family, then you know you will never go hungry!

Waiting in line at Carl's...

My friend, Becca
