    I met Natalie & crew today

    Natalie and her fam were in northern virginia for the holidays and today we got together for lunch.

    Larry and Nat seemed a little tired and poor Stasia was sick But they were polite enough to sit through lunch with me and chat even though I delayed them on their trip back to Massa.

    Here's the few shots that were taken:
    1.) Poor Stasia
    2.) Me taken by Nat
    3.) Art (taken by Nat)
    4.) "Hey kids, how do you feel about driving back home today?!"

    Re: I met Natalie & crew today

    Yup! That's me!

    I'll let Natalie represent herself - the only good shot I have is of her picking her nose From the Boston gathering.

    I'm sure she could do better!

    SLC sounds good - it's a long drive from DC though.

    Re: I met Natalie & crew today

    LOL Rick, you're such a ham! I dunno, I'd say that's about a 9 3/4 on the cuteness scale.

    Aww poor Stacia. I hate it when kids are sick.

    Yeah SLC!
    Let's do it!

    I didn't know you were in the DC area...
    Had I know that, I would said something when I was there back in May.
    Don't know when I'll be getting there again.

    Re: I met Natalie & crew today

    A ham? Yes. Lara thanks for putting it nicely I was "posing" for the camera.

    Yeah, I felt bad for Stasia too. She threw up all over mommy! Right there in the restaurant. When Natalie had her in the bathroom she said Anastasia kept saying "sowwy I throwed up" to all the ladies who came in. How cute is that?!

    Re: DC eh?

    Yup. I don't think many people realize that northern virginia and southern maryland are the suburbs of Washington DC. Lots of work around here! Lots of traffic too. I was supposed to drive south to Richmond today but at 2:30 all the major routes were gridlocked. I turned around and came home

    If I'm ever in the SLC area again, I'll let you know!

    Re: DC eh?

    I know that Northern VA is considered a suburb of DC, it's just hard to think that a city in another state can be that.
    Here in the West, you have to travel a good two hours or more to be in another state, and it is still far from a major town or city..
    YES! Let me know when you are here in SLC!

    Re: I met Natalie & crew today

    Rick a ham? I never would have guessed that from his posts here! ;) But I guess I'd be antidisestablismentarianistic too if I heard the word "bling" on AM radio... We felt pretty lucky to have Natalie at the Chicago gathering this year.

    By the way.

    BTW - When Nat gets back up here I want you all to give her a big hug.

    She was playing with my little coolpix all day during lunch and when I asked her what happened to her little camera she told me she gave it to her sister (or in-law) who didn't have a camera at all. Is that sweet? I almost handed her mine
