We started off with a nice run through the neighborhood, but it's such a giant dang compound that it didn't take us very long to get lost. We made it back alive though, so don't fret.
Then we got locked out of the house in this:
...but luckily I'm a miniature person and fit through the doggie door to the screened-in back porch (even the PORCH was locked), so at least we had cover until the Daveys got back home.
Eventually, we decided we were done with mishaps, so we headed downtown with Lydia to check out Carytown, which was super cute (Zack's words, not mine). For dinner, we wanted to go to a place featured on the Travel Channel's "Man vs. Food," but right when we drove up, the sky reopened and we decided we didn't want to wait outside in the rain. So we headed to a VCU favorite, which I can honestly say provided me with one of the tastiest milkshakes I've had in quite a few moons.
I would have snapped some photos of the meal, but...it was pancakes and I know you know what pancakes look like. Plus, the picture could not have possibly captured their delicioso-ness, trust me. Instead, I sneaked a shot of a poster that made me smile. These Rams like their basketball 'round here.
|I so wish this was referring to this Shaka, not this Shaka.|
|Turns out I'm no good at making llamas...|
|My entry for the "tree" category definitely trumped Zack's though. No contest.|
|In the "car" category, we were equally bad, with my VW Bug matching his pickup-truck-with-no-suspension...|
|and...the "bear" assignment didn't end too well either.|
...road trips. woot!
