Saturday the kids and I met my friend Julie and her girls in Richmond. They live in Charlottesville, Richmond is in between us so that is usually our destination. I met her 15 years ago (on the same day I met my husband) and since that day she has been one of my best friends. We have been through a lot in 15 year and we can still talk on the phone for 4 hours, meet 3 days later and have plenty to say.
We went to Richmond National Battlefield at Tredegar Iron Works. Our plan was to do something (anything) outside! We packed a picnic and after a trip to the Visitor Center went across the street and enjoyed the warmer weather.
The kids with Abe and Tad!
Aaah, spring (please note the lack of coats!).
Sunday Matt worked in the yard trying to clear out "winter". The kids were outside all day, they even ate lunch on the porch. I'm glad that finally Spring has arrived in Virginia.
Bike rides and snacks.
We taught the kids to play UNO - it's now their favorite game.
The best thing about this weekend is that my kids realized that they really didn't need to sit in front of the television all day to enjoy themselves!
