New Years Eve

This year we had actual plans to go out for New Years Eve!  Lee was scheduled to shoot a running race in Fairfax at 6:00, so we dropped Olivia off with Grandma and Grandpa for the night and we headed to Fairfax for the race.  I snapped a few pictures of Brian and Lee getting things ready for the race.

The DJ was awesome!  Very motivating for the runners! 
I'd say the spotlights are working just fine 

Brian setting up the bubble machine!
After the race, Brian, Christine, Lee and I all went to a local place for dinner.  It wasn't crowded and we were able to enjoy an ok meal and good company before we headed to Arlington to ring in the new year with our friends Dharma and Andy.

We got to the George's house around 9:30 and met Andy's new Christmas present....his dual tap kegerator! We enjoyed some nice fresh beer while sitting outside around their fire pit.  It was a lovely evening because it wasn't too cold and the sky was very clear.  So, sitting outside was wonderful! Yes, we smelled like camp fire after we left, but it was worth it!  We listened to a mix of old classic music on somebody's phone using Pandora, we sang along, and we came inside to watch the ball drop.  I did manage to snap a few pictures outside, but they were all pretty smokey!

Cheers everyone!  Here's to a wonderful 2012!!
