The Simons Take Richmond

What a wonderful treat we had - David, Shira and Myself drove down to meet my older Brother and his family in Richmond, VA.

After a quick lunch, we made our way to Maymont Nature Center. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but my expectations were definitely surpassed. The nature center itself had a fun series of exhibits to walk through and see Virginia specific wildlife. Then we made our way over to the kids farm, which not only had cuddly animals like sheep and goats, but also eagles, vultures and black bears.

It was wonderful seeing our niece and nephew. As always, I'm impressed by them and their brilliance. For example, when I suggested that we were looking at "an eagle foot" my niece corrected me and told me they were talons. Or the way that my nephew had the games on my cell phone figured out in about 15 seconds. Geniuses, both of them. Can that be inherited from an uncle?

Below are some snapshots from the day - what good times.

  1. I can't tell if Ethan looks like David or Josh, but Madelyn is all Iris. :-) Everyone looks great! I wish we could've come!
