    It'll be hard to find a spot near the river in Old Town on a Sunday afternoon. Gonna brainstorm a bit. Once we have a closer count I'll try to line something up.

    Sadly, this may require a trip or two into Old Town for recon. ;)

    If we stage at my house you will all meet His Jazziness. Many of you will regret it and may decide to go off dogs altogether. There aren't a whole lot of schnauzer people in the world. LOL

    Count on me and Emma - looking forward to the specifics.

    If we are going somewhere to eat, if you can check (Becky) on their GF options (since I'm sure you are good at that with your daughter), Emma will need GF options

    I'm planning to be there! I won't have Aiden along though since I'll have been in DC for a bachelorette party on Saturday night. I live about 2 hours away, so I probably won't be able to stay too late or enjoy the tequila --well, maybe just one ;) I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone! :cwds:

    We'll have to plan a get together for them soon! I just don't see how I can bring him this time. It will be easier for me to visit without him anyway :p

    My name is Stephanie. :cool:

    The Terp is included because I graduated from the University of Maryland. I'm still trying to figure out if this will work in my schedule and whether Matt would like to come with me. At 19, he usually has a pretty busy schedule.

    Just a thought...

    As our numbers seem to be growing/changing...how would everyone feel about me reserving the pavilion at my neighborhood pool for several hours? It would give the kids something to do while we all yammer ;) and we would avoid Tourist High Season in Alexandria and all the parking/eating issues that involves. (Disclaimer #1: I do not receive any kickback fromt he pool.)

    We are also located quite close to a county park where there is miniature golf, and I believe a merry-go-round. It's a mile or so down the park road. We would probably have to shuttle to the park as parking on the weekend is usually an issue.

    We have a local pizzaria which offers organic ingredients and a GLUTEN-FREE option...(disclaimer #2: Tommy is a driver there but I'm not hawking for them). They also offer salads, subs, sandwiches, and calzones. *AND* they have carb info available.

    Disclaimer #3: Adult beverages would need to be artfully disguised at the pool. :rolleyes:

    If we're looking at less than two dozen people, we can use my (boring) house as a rain plan.

    In any case, please PM me your email address so I can make a mailing list, regardless of what the ultimate plan turns out to be.

    I would love to come for the get-together, but not sure I want to drive 6 hours. May talk to the hubby about it, though and make it a girls trip with just me and Katie. I don't think I could handle the drive with both kids. I'll let you know as soon as I decide. If I do, it will probably just be me and Katie who will only be 1 by then so don't have to really count her :p
