Richmond Fun

We spent a few days in Richmond this week so we could meet our cousin, Sophie! WHAT A CUTIE!!! The boys created her new nickname and I am pretty sure this one will stick. Sorry, MIMI!


We had a lot of fun at GaGa and PaPa's house. We were lucky to be able to play on with this cool table:

We also had a blast playing in the backyard "pool":

Mimi and Henry enjoyed taking turns in the bouncy seat. H was reminiscing.

We met our friend Abby at the squirty fountain at the mall. It was soooo fun!

Great Grandma came to visit on Tuesday and Wednesday with Aunt Lynn, Cousin Courtney, Aunt Meriann and Uncle Scott. It was so great to see them.


We went down to the James River to check out their playground with GaGa. Here are the boys taking different perspectives of the blue spinny thing:

Survivor: Backyard, and Henry loves blueberries:


On Friday, Scott, Meriann, and Courtney invited us to Busch Gardens. It was awesome. We had such a great time with them!!!! (And we can't wait to go camping! And on the boat! And in the hot tub! And.....)




Here's Scott and Henry at the dinosaur eggs:


Here's Henry, dying for a big white polar bear from the softball-in-the-jug game. The next picture is Todd pushing the big white polar bear in the stroller. Yay Todd! (Disclaimer: Todd didn't win it. This wonderfully nice couple watched us blow $30 at the booth and gave us theirs. So nice. We LOVE our charity bear!)

Ha, love the pic of H in the bouncer.

OMG, what a sweet couple to give you their polar bear. It's nice to see that there are still nice people in the world.

Great trip hon. Must go and check out the whole album :)

Last day of Whole 30!

Today is my last day of doing Whole 30! It has been a challenge. Yes, I have cheated a couple times, but only very minor cheats. For example...
