FGP Brunch

FGP = Future Grandparents, according to Rebecca's mother-in-law, Zenny.

Pam and I met Zenny and Tim at a restaurant in Old Town Alexandria for brunch on January 5th. The main topic of conversation was the announcement over Christmas by Rebecca and Sean that she is pregnant, and we will all be grandparents.

Above L to R is Zenny, Tim, Me, and Pam. Rebecca's due date is June 28.
