Brunch at the Gaylord

Monday April 19, 2010

Grandad graciously invited us to join him this Sunday for his Yacht Club’s Annual Power Cruise and Brunch.  The plan was travel from the club to the National Harbor by boat, then have brunch at Pienza, an Italian restaurant located in atrium of the Gaylord National Hotel.  Well, the weather was not ideal for boating, and I didn’t think my crew would remain cooperative for the boat ride to and fro, so we opted to drive over by car.

In addition to hosting our family, Grandad also invited Aunt Melissa & Cousin Owen (Uncle Bear was racing cars), and friends Ryan & Karina and their little guy.

We had fun exploring the atrium, prior to brunch.

The fountains were a big hit with everyone, except Adam, who was under the weather.

Pienza was a beautiful restaurant with a scrumptious brunch.   I was a little worried when I saw all the glass goblets, but the kids all behaved surprisingly well.

In addition to the delicious food, this trio played a wide range of music on their cello, violin, and accordian.  They were quite talented and it was a lovely accompaniment to a wonderful meal.

Thanks Grandad for a wonderful treat!
