Riding Around on the Pike
We found ourselves over in Rockville last evening, a place I hadn't been to in several years. I met my wife, Teresa, in Rockville, back in the late 90s. The church we attended, Montrose Baptist, was located there, and we spent many a Sunday afternoon running around on Rockville Pike. We eventually settled in Howard County and very rarely ever returned to that part of Montgomery County.
My daughter, who is a voracious reader, wanted to visit the Barnes & Noble on the Pike, and that is a really nice one, containing two stories of books. After shopping for over an hour, we decided to get dinner, and we made our way over to the Mellow Mushroom, a favorite pizza joint. I'm just amazed at how built up it is in Rockville. It was always congested, and it seems even worse than it ever was.
The whole evening was a classic weeknight adventure for my daughter and me. We love doing these types of things on the spur of the moment, and we had a lot of fun this time. We didn't find any books, but we had some pretty good pizza, and we created a memory.
Have a great evening, everyone.
