Here is the October photo dump:
Eric did a tour of the dental school with the young men's crew
And then we went on a trip to Grundy, VA with the mission of mercy. They transform an elementary school cafeteria into a dental practice and do free dental work for two full days, and then put everything back together. When Eric signed up, I decided I wanted to tag along. I signed up for a "dental assistant" and I think they were a little disappointed when they realized I couldn't give shots or do anything dental assistant-ish. It was a really cool experience and we came home motivated to floss.
The awesome thing about having some of our best friends in DC and Chapel Hill is meeting up for the weekend! They both drove to Richmond and we had a blast showing them around.We went to the Brunswick Stew festival downtown and took the ferry boat onto the River. We also checked out Maymont, went to Hogshead for dinner, and played games.
One of the highlights of the stew festival was asking this man to take our group photo. When I looked at my camera there was literally 9 attempts that were selfies life this:
Richmond has SO many festivals and I don't think they will ever get old. We loved the Folk festival.
In lieu of a weekend trip that was supposed to happen, we planned a sleepover night with the Innes'. The night started out at Hogshead, where we were thoroughly entertained (and then annoyed) by a crazy man and crazy women who told us that meat is the key to a healthy diet. Then we played tennis and headed to our house for the sleepover part... The sleepover ended up being a movie night till 3 am because they practically live next door.
I also started work at KPMG in October (my ugly cubicle is pictured below), and I had training in Florida for two LONG weeks. I was a roller-coaster of emotions, mostly just missing Eric. He got a few phone calls of pure panic and tears.
I had to secretly take a picture because that guy in the suit with a sign was waiting for me at the airport. That was the coolest I've felt probably ever, and I am pretty sure that will be the last time that happens.
It was torture being stuck inside while the weather was gorgeous and there was this pool sitting right outside our workrooms. But they took pretty good care of us and sent us to Disneyland and to the Disney Frightmares.
At breakfast one morning I tried to make Eric jealous by sending him a picture of his favorite pastry.
No less than 5 minutes later he responded with a matching picture that he ran to the hospital to buy.
I also got some picture texts of the adorable new twins that Eric was visiting!
