To celebrate their birthday, we hit McDonald's for happy meals, followed by Entemann's Danishes (daddy is 36) and a Donkey Kong cake (for the 5 yr-old, who also got a stuffed snake and a spy kit, complete with handcuffs--loved 'em!
Millie, Jake, and I ran/walked in the Richmond Monument 10k/Kids fun run yesterday. There were over 40,000 participants and we had a fabulous time! Great meeting up with you, Minniemay (great run, by the way), and thank you, sweet Blairence, for making the trip at 4:30 am, running with Jake, and watching the kids while I participated!
Luray Caverns: Amazing place! It's got the world's largest instrument: an organ that strikes the stalactites/mites throughout the caverns. Lower Lt: some formations are so delicate, they resemble cloth. Lower Rt: Applewood B&B, where we stayed.
"Foamhenge" An artist's rendering of Stonehenge, in Western Virginia
Crabtree Falls, along the blueridge parkway. Beautiful, and the tallest falls east of the Missisippi.
This "Natural bridge" actually serves as a bridge: traffic crosses over it. George Washington carved his initials in the rock below it. Blair enjoys the falls upstream from the bridge.
We loved our trip away and thank Grandma Connie for letting us leave the wild ones with her.
