He Made It!

Brett texted me at 9:30 this morning to let me know that he was driving by the White House.  They were able to check in early and by 10:30 a.m. Doug posted a picture of Brett outside his apartment with The Capitol Building in the background.  They unpacked pretty quickly and were able to walk around for 45 minutes or so before Brett was ready to be on his own.  They found out that the Supreme Court building was across the street from his new place and The Capitol was only a five minute walk.  They checked out Brett's new office building and took a few pictures.  He will easily be able to walk to work and they both were thrilled with his new location.  Brett met his new roommate after lunch and was happy to let us know that there would only be two of them even though they get the discount for a quad.  Doug was able to get on the road before noon.  He wanted to get through the mountains of Pennsylvania before it was dark and would definitely be able to do so.  He did bring back Brett's TV and Playstation 4.  His roommate already had one in the apartment and there wasn't room for two.  He kept his controller and games, however.

While Doug was traveling home and Brett was busy getting acclimated to his new surroundings, Cameron, Meg and I headed to South Bend.  We stopped at Noodles & Company first before doing some serious shopping.  Meg found tennis shoes at Dick's and I found some at Kohl's.  We tried to get Cam a new Scooby Doo Lego at Toys R Us, but didn't have any luck.  We stopped at the Barnes & Noble, The Disney Store and Yankee Candle at the mall.  On our way home we drove through Dunlap so that we could pick up some supplies and Valentine's gifts at Target.  Cam and Meg wanted wings, so we ordered them from Buffalo Wild Wings while we shopped.

Doug called several times on his trip home.  He made very good time and planned to be home at 8:30.  We decided to go out to dinner when he got here.  Cam was ok with staying home alone, but Meg said she and Kaitlin would hang out here while we were gone.  I appreciated that.  I enjoyed catching up with Doug.  He was very pleased with Brett's new situation.  Doug took Meg and Kaitlin to McDonald's for ice cream when we got back.  Then the girls went to Kaitlin's to spend the night.  What a great day we all had!
