VA and MD

We had a big time this past weekend in Virginia and Maryland.  We started out last Wednesday and drove up to Williamsburg and stopped in Richmond for dinner.  I had gotten recommendations from Suz but we were starving and were rushed it was so late that we ended up just going into some random mexican place on the main street.  It wasn't good and we learned our lesson!
The little main street area is super cute and I saw this fun crab pillow in the window of one of the shops.
Thursday evening we drove to my parents on the eastern shore of Maryland.  We had a cocktail hour with my parents and then went out to La Roma for dinner.  Friday we went by our church to show it to Kevin, by GB Heron (the best jewelry store ever) and then down to the beach.  We drove around Assateague Island and saw a few wild horses! 
 
We drove around the marina in West Ocean City.....(love the dog on the dock!)

Then had soft shell crab sandwich's on the water at Sunset Grill.  Poor Dad was working and couldn't join us!
That evening, we had some neighbors visit with us and then we had crab cakes for dinner - yum! 

Saturday morning, we got up and washed the cars and the boat!  Then we took a ride down the river.  Mom and Kevin:
The Captains!
We came home and showered up and headed to Old Mill Crabhouse in Delmar, DE.  YUM!!  Can you see the trend of crabs here?!!  LOVE THEM!  Can't find the good ones in Charlotte!
This was Kevin's second time picking them and I think he may like the snow crab legs better.  He just doesn't see the point of the picking and all that stuff....I think it is in the culture of growing up on the eastern shore!!!  He still has a good time going with us though!
Sunday morning, we geered up and went on the boat again, this time to the Tangier Sound.  We brought bait to go fishing and crabbing.  While we only caught two fish, we had a good time!  Here is dad cutting up the peelers to use!
This is right before he caught a croaker!
I caught a crab on a fishing rod and couldn't even get him in off the line.  Ughhh!!
An amazing Memorial Day weekend with my parents.  THANK YOU ALL SOOOOO much for everything!!!!!!
