Weekends are the best, and should therefore be longer. (amiright?)
This weekend started by going to The Beach exhibit in DC. The hubs and I are not fans of driving into the city (/rant) If you’ve never been to D.C. sometimes roads change directions, the gps is always wrong, parking is SUPER expensive. (/end rant)
So we looked online and the exhibit was actually across the street from the metro. Jackpot! We drove our car, parked for free at the metro and rode merrily to D.C. I’ve never been to the National Building Museum. Didn’t even know where it was located. My friend found out about the exhibit and all I could think was that I needed to go.
We didn’t really plan anything. We just knew we were going and that we wanted lunch afterwards. Turns out the waiting period is about 1.5 hours to buy your tickets, and another hour to be able to go in.
Safe to say we weren’t super happy, but we did what groups do: laughed, talked, caught up with each other’s lives and took some pictures.
The Museum is beautiful inside. We didn’t explore the other floors, but it was huge.
I didn’t understand how that many people would fit in the exhibit. But I was surprised with how packed it was! Kids from all ages, elderly people jumping in the “water”. It was like relieving my childhood.
Now, if you’re a germaphobe that may not be the place for you. I couldn’t tell, but as far as I was concerned it was decently clean. It’s a ball pit, people. Things are going to have everyone’s germs on it. But it’s fun. Boy, is it fun.
We all had a blast, hung out for about an hour, burring ourselves, trying to get up, chilling. It was a fun sight. I get slightly panicky when I am buried, so I wasn’t a fan of that part, but everything else was a blast. I needed Brian all the way though. I got stuck deep so many times. It was funny, but pitiful. He was a lot better than me.
And let’s not talk about the kids, ok? Because the little people were pros! diving off platforms, going all over us, while we kept getting stuck.. Is this how getting old feels? Darn, I’m too young for that!
It was a blast. I would definitely recommend this to anyone around the area. It’s open until the first week of September. So if you are around, check it out!
We ended up eating somewhere afterwards and it was delicious! We ordered pizza, and I had a gourmet chicken pesto, that was devoured before I could snap a picture (horrible blogger that I am). But I managed to snap one of our desert, who was waaaaay expensive, and had way too much alcohol in it.
The waitress conveniently forgot to mention how much more expensive it would be, which put us all in a sour mood. We wouldn’t mind the price had she told us in advance, but making money like that is just dishonest. Next time I’ll stick to the menu, thank you very much.
After a nice ride home, in which I beat the hubs at Sudoku (I mean, I obsessively play this thing every day) we went over to another friend’s house for more pizza (ill planed on our part) and a round of Cards Against Humanity.
Safe to say I need this game asap! It’s not for the easily offended. You always go for the most shock factor. I shuddered at some of my own answers, but boy was it worth it. I plan on playing it again very very soon. And maybe even adding this to our own game collection.
Monday was a day to rest, and get all last minute things for all the paperwork in my life. Fingers crossed, keep us in your prayers that it will all go smoothly. It’s nerve wrecking and I just hope things will go right.
