Richmond: Children’s Museum, Hollywood Cemetery, BBQ, and Beer!
Somewhat, kinda, sorta recently we took a trip down to Richmond for the day and had a great time with Abby and my parents.
First on the agenda was lunch at Q Barbeque. Yes please and thank you! It was most excellent.
Then we took Abby to the Children’s Museum of Richmond and she had a lot of fun. It’s a great museum for little ones and I’m happy to hear that the same museum organization is building one in Fredericksburg for 2013. 🙂 The pictorial:
She had fun scanning and ringing up plastic piles of spaghetti, tacos, and green beans.
Our lil’ Abicus playing with a lil’ abacus.
And playing with a big abacus.
This is FUN Mom!
Big apple tree.
We can’t wait to take Abby on her first camping experience some day!
Abby’s first ride on the merry-go-round. We let her pick and of course she wanted to sit on the kitty-cat. 🙂
We checked out the big craft room but only drew with crayons on the table for a little.
She had fun jumping up and down on these outside making music, and hitting other musical instruments with that mallet.
Since it was so hot out, we then went inside where Abby decided to rotate some tires.
Then made a new friend in the sandbox, although this was filled with tiny particles of rubber – not sand. She would have stayed in here all day if we let her!
Fun family day!
After the museum we went to explore Hollywood Cemetery for a little bit. Abby fell asleep, it was HOT, and it was closing soon so we only drove around for a bit and got out at a few spots. It’s a very beautiful cemetery. We’ll have to go back again sometime.
Very interesting tombstones and headstones here.
Noticed this FISHER tombstone and even though it’s not an uncommon name, I found it ironic to find a Fisher tombstone in this huge cemetery since at this time I was finishing up the excellent HBO series Six Feet Under.
Another neat tree tombstone.
After the cemetery, we met up with brother/uncle Chris at Legend Brewery for some grub and brews. Perfect way to end the day!
