We had a busy, but great trip to Maryland this weekend. The weather was amazing, so we enjoyed spending time on my parents deck visiting with our friends and family.
Every trip to Maryland from June to early November involves a crab feast, unfortunately our hands must have been too messy to take any photos. We had a great time hanging out and eating crabs with my parents, my sister and her family, and our friends Joanna and Rusty. There is nothing like a crisp late summer evening spent with fun people around a brown paper clad table with a mountain of chesapeake bay crabs, a few dishes of melted butter, and some old bay dipping piles. Its an event not a meal... something for Virginia to look forward to in the coming years.
There is also nothing like Sunday brunch and redskins football with family, especially when celebrating a new engagement! My cousin Nina (and one of Ginny's biggest supporters) got engaged Saturday night to Jay, who has been a Klem family favorite for a long time. We were so so happy to be there to celebrate with them.
Congrats to Nina & Jay!

Virginia's first time meeting Kara. Virginia loves nurses and instantly loved Kara, who is in her final year of nursing school and is going to be one amazing nurse.
