Our Lil' Derecho

Dearest Blythe,

Happy July! Thanks for sharing pics of the sailing trip! What an evening you all had! Cousin time is the best, I got to spend lots of time with my cousins this weekend and it's basically my favorite thing to do.

This weekend was pretty wild in DC. I knew it was gonna be a scorcha with temps above 100 degrees, but I had no idea that an insane storm was headed our way. I hate writing about the weather because it seems so boring, but it totally affected everything we did this weekend. So now you and our readers are stuck with a post about weather, and some other stuff...

Luckily we got home on Friday night about 15 min before this epic storm, know as a derecho began. And on Saturday morning we learned that basically everyone in the region was out of power except for us, lucky ducks that we are. So all weekend we've been hosting friends and family who are out of power, and more importantly, air conditioning.

Our cousins Steph and Scott spent the day with us on Saturday and our friend John has been slumber partying with us too. It's been kinda fun... but we're the ones with AC.

Here are some insane photos taken by residents around the region.

So what else did we do this weekend? Our favorite activity, we went to the movies... twice.

First up: Ted. I was afraid that all of the best parts of the movie were in the preview... and to some extent that's true, but it was still worth seeing in my mind.

*** This trailer is not suitable for work... or you, Mom.***

We also saw Magic Mike. I figured it was just a rental, but then I heard it was directed by Steven Soderbergh, of Ocean's Eleven and Erin Brockovich fame, and I decided it my be worth it.  I gotta say, it was pretty good. And if you're a Matthew McConaughey fan, he was born for this role. Hysterical.

***This trailer probably isn't THAT suitable for work either. Up to you.***

Told you it was a wild weekend! A talking teddy bear with a Boston accent, a derecho and male strippers. Done and done.
