Up to the Richmond Area

Maymont Garden

This past weekend I went up to visit my Sister, Aunt, Uncle, and Cousins. It was so nice to see everyone again. Saturday we went to visit the Maymont, which by far is one of the most beautiful places I have visited in Virginia and it isn’t even springtime yet. It is hard to imagine what it would look like then! I am going to let my pictures do most of the talking this time..

Very cool animal farm..

Yup, Ian did sleep through most of it. He was exhausted!

My cousin TJ, everyone walking by loved his hair!

They love ice cream..

The trip really was a lot of fun but I think Ian was sad to be leaving his Aunt Lauren..

But he did get to come back to a fun wagon ride with Grandma and Grandpa..

While I took photos of the sign I wacked in half when slipping on ice while driving home Wednesday.

The Roadsign I broke

There is nothing worse than that feeling of losing control and doing a 360 on the side of the road. My lesson learned.. never hit the gas on ice. But if Ian could sleep through it, couldn’t be too bad..right righhht?

When driving on ice goes wrong

As always, more pictures on flickr.

Thanks for your comments about my sunrise pic. Glad you found my blog. Your photos are beautiful. We're in Meilen, moved here 2+ years ago from Texas via Ohio. When you're back in the area, let's have a coffee. My best - Margaret Feldmeth (mfeldmeth@gmail.com; feldmeths.blogspot.com)
