Old Town Alexandria

Tonight we headed to Alexandria so I could scratch a pregnancy itch. I really, really, really wanted some Jimmy John's. Alexandria just happened to be the closest one (about 20 minutes away). When we got down there though it was closed. It was closed all day today! We were shocked and I was extremely dissapointed. We decided to walk across the street to Potbelly to see if we could get a sandwich there instead. But on Saturday and Sunday they close at 5pm. Who closes at 5pm on the weekends?!?!

We had planned on going somewhere in Old Town after dinner, so we decided to just head down there for dinner too. We went down there, found a parking ramp and tried to figure out dinner. We ended up walking to the water front area on the river.

On the right of the picture you'll see the restaurant we chose to eat at. It's called The Chart House. It's mostly a fish and seafood restaurant but I had a really good dish called Almand Crested Chicken Breast served with herbed risoto and brie. We really enjoyed the dinner and I know we'll be there again.

After the wonderful visit at the restaurant we walked back to the pier and visited the parrots that were hanging out. We donated some money to the foundation that's saving abandoned and abused birds and I got to hold one of them. Malachi didn't want to hold it, but he did pet it. After that we walked over to Candie's Candy shop. I really felt like a kid in a candy store (pun intended). We ended up buying over a pound of candy! I might have a bit of a tummy ache right now and I don't think I can stop.

We then came home. I had such a great night with my boys. John then went out with some friends to see Section 9. Now I'm chillin watching TV and Malachi's sleeping soundly.

Ahhh....(happy sigh)
