Jason and I headed to Columbia this weekend for Bec and Cameron's wedding reception. We had a great time and saw lots of old friends.
We got into town on Friday, headed to a BBQ, then to Louis and Jen's house (they were great hosts.. and we paid them in cheese!), then to Cooper's landing for the Thai food that I have missed since I left Columbia. I couldn't believe how much Columbia has grown since I left.. I haven't even been gone for 2 years!
Saturday we had breakfast at the old Chesapeake bagel place, now B&B. Different name, same place. They still have trivia questions for free bagles. It was so nice to have a bagel place right across the street! Then I had lunch with my old lab after they were done in the field. Then we relaxed a little before heading to dinner at Jazz (I had a fried oyster Po'boy..mmmmm) and we even saw some old friends we played softball with. Joel was playing guitar at Jazz (he and his band played at our wedding cocktail hour).
Then came the reception at the alumni center. It was great to see so many old friends and I think a good time was had by all... so good that there was an after party at the Heidelberg.. we closed it down.
Sunday we had brunch at Boone Tavern and then headed back to Cooper's Landing for a boat ride on the Missouri. I think I am still recovering from the trip but I am so glad we went!
