Flowers, Family & Food...Oh My!

My big sister Rissy (Carissa for the rest of you folks) came down for a visit this weekend to see our new digs. Colin and I have been waiting for company to visit so we could try out various local attractions. Saturday brought us a a visit to the Oceanfront Art Festival followed by dinner at Chix Oyster Bar. On Sunday we found ourselves at Norfolk Botanical Gardens, lunch at Azars, and a visit to Colin's squadron which was all capped off by steak and peach pie on Saturday night with our neighbor Diane and her kidlet (as Colin loves to say) Hannah. Additionally our good friends from Guam, Julie and John came up today for a quick visit with their son Tommy. All in all, a very fun and eventful weekend!
