My parents came to visit on Saturday. Our goal was to go to the Nationals game as a family. Game started at 7 and we got there at 4:30 so that my little brother could watch batting practice. Even arriving super early, there were barely any seats left! I guess that's what you get when your hometown favorites are the top team in baseball! Our options were $195 box seats or $20 standing room only tickets. My mom and I made the executive decision to skip the game and let the boys hang out at Nationals Park.
Instead, we detoured to Theodore Roosevelt Island and watched the boats and kayak as they ventured down the Potomac. Later, we headed to Gravelly Point and laid in the grass and watched the air planes land overhead.
We grabbed dinner in Clarendon at BGR. Their servings are gigantic! We ordered some mini sliders and a veggie burger (which the manager touted as the best veggie burger in DC). I was skeptical, but my mom and I agreed that it was delish! B ended up eating only a brownie and skipped the burger and fries - which is very unlike him. Maybe they have the best brownies in DC too!
