Since breakfast was now going to be lunch, and I was hungry, we had a lite breakfast of Swedish crisp bread, thin sliced ham & Swedish Västerbotten cheese, coffee, juice and some fruit, before heading out to D.C. If you're interested, you can get the Swedish crisp bread & cheese at any IKEA store :)
Once we arrived at Ben's Chili Bowl, I got a message from Jenn saying they just arrived and were already inside at a table in the back. Looks like the first one there today was Mike, who arrived at 10:30! Sorry Mike, didn't think you would be early today after being out till 4:00am two nights in a row! Do you ever sleep?! hahaha
Already seated and checking out the menu was Carole, Mike, Jenn & Chris.
After a great lunch, it was time to say goodbye to everyone and get Lola headed to the airport. Since she has a 2:45 flight time, she brought her bag with to Ben's. After a final group picture or two, or three, or four (which I apparently didn't get)... and many hugs all around, Lena, Lola and I got back on the Metro. The rest of the group headed back into the city for more site seeing, so check out their blogs for further adventures :)
A few stops later, we changed trains said our last good bye to Lola, and put her on the Green Line headed to Greenbelt where she will catch the bus to BWI Airport.
This was an awesome meet-up and the weather was perfect! It was GREAT meeting everyone, and seeing Bill and Lola again!!! I hope everyone had a good time, and we can't wait for the next time we get to hang out together again!
