One of the greatest things about summer is that the day seems to last forever and you can still play after dinner. Last night Ben and I tried out our tennis skills (or lack thereof). Our attempt at a tennis match turned into “let’s see how many we can rally” and a lot of laughter. Regardless it was really fun, and I apparently have to hold the racket like a baseball bat in order to hit the ball in a straight line. Who knows, maybe we will be able to play a real game by the end of the summer.
We have set out on the quest to find the best ice cream in Annapolis and I do believe we found a winner right on Main Street at Annapolis Ice Cream Company. This place knows how to make some ice cream. Not only is their ice cream homemade, but it didn’t melt all over me and through my waffle cone which is huge bonus points in my book. Ben had strawberry and Oreo and I stayed true to my favorite pick, peanut butter chocolate. Although we have a few more ice cream shops in the running, this will be hard to beat. I’ll be sure to keep you posted.
For our wedding, we received a gift card to Lewnes’ Steakhouse, and we decided tonight was the night to use it. I guess we could say it was celebrating almost two months of marriage. Hooray! It has been the most beautiful weather recently and I have grown to really love watching the sunset over the water.
Both Ben and I had heard nothing but great things and Lewnes’ did not disappoint. We started out with mini crab cakes before Ben’s prime rib and my shrimp with our sides of potatoes and asparagus arrived. So good. We felt pretty spoiled getting to treat ourselves to such a nice meal.
